My 98 slk230k roof will not open. When I press the button it moves normally then the motor begins to drag and it stops just a few inches off the top. Any suggestions as to anything I can do before replacing the motor?

Have the lubrication points lubricated and check to be sure the tension cables are all in place. I am assuming the roof comes unlatched from the windshield, because if not, then you have a switch problem and not a motor problem. The motor you hear is not actually driving the roof, it is driving a hydraulic pump.

Much thanks, I'll give this a try!
