Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** assume that you have a CLK, not a CL550. If the convertible top won't retract after removing the spare from the trunk I would have to suspect there is a fault with the luggage compartment cover. If the cover is not fully in place it will prevent the top from operating. I would fold the cover back and forth and place it firmly in position then see if the top will operate.
Let me know how you make out.

Hi, what happens when you try to open the roof? Do you get an error message on the dash?

Nothing

Nothing no message

You should check the fuses in the interior fuse box at the end of the dash. Fuse 28, 32 and 33 are all for the roof system. Did anything else occur when you had the tire replaced? Did the car battery go dead?
