Ask Your Own Mercedes Question

in order to reset the roll bar you need to activate the roll bar in the raise position as long as it takes to hear a loud snap or pop. then it should be able to be lowered and the roof will work again as long as the windows have been synchronized.

hope this helps.

please let me know if you need more info.
