When I woke up this morning I was greeted by a balmy outdoor temperature of 2 C ( 36 F). By 2.00 PM it had risen to a torrid 7 C (44 F) - definitely time to raise the top so I could steal a few more trips prior to storage without freezing.to death. This is my least favorite thing about the 107. Raising and lowering the top is a pain and it gets worse with increasing age as the whole mechanism seems to increase its weight every year. I take every precaution to tuck in the edges when storing the top in spring yet somehow, when raising it back up again those same damned edges turn up away from the body and look awful until I put weights on them to restore the shape and appearance. Messing around with the two threaded bolts to fit into the headliner sockets seems to be a persnickety task at best, sometimes surprisingly easy but more frequently aggravating in the extreme and the locking bolt at the rear seems ever less willing to perform its task.without being bullied into place. My old '74 Buick convertible was a snap and just as weatherproof as the Benz - surely MB could have come up with a simpler, less time consuming design?
