Customer Question

I have a 2003 Mercedes 500 SL. My top will not go up or down. I checked for hydraulic leaks found two. Ended up changing three hydraulic rams and the pump. The pump makes noise the trunk opens and that's it. Both side flapper arms are tight. Of course I took it to Mercedes-Benz they have no idea. Help!
