Are you trying to get it to operate properly or manually lower it?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Operate properly. I just obtained this auto. The red button just blinks when I pull it back. I have no owner's manual. If I could manually lower the top, that would be of help also - but automatic even better.

It seems you are having a problem with a code being triggered. Did you check for codes at a dealer?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

This is a 2002 SLK 320 hard top convertible. I can not find a way to "unlock the rood."

So, I can not follow the rest of the procedures you listed. Please advise how to

"unlock the roof."

Mercedes Mechanic: Nelson Garcia, Mercedes Technician replied 8 years ago
To unlock the roof you will have to remove the upper contol panel where the dome light is and there should be a bolt you use the Allen tool that should have come with you vehicle to release the front latches. You must also use the same tool to release the pressure in the pump to operate manually. There should be an access port hole in the trunk but against where the seat backs would be. Insert to and feel it slide in you can't see it. Then loosen it counter clockwise a turn to release pressure.

Goodluck
Nelson
