    Hard top problem

    I just purchased a 1987 560 sl and cannot get the rear latch to release in order to remove the hard top. I have followed the directions in the manual to a T. The car was in our family and has sat for 4 years under a car cover in a garage. This beauty has 39,000 miles and runs great but it is 72 degrees and sunny in Cincinnati and I want to drop the top today and go for a ride.

    Hard top problem = 3 people to solve

    take 3-people sometimes

    2 to hold the hart top up at the front - tilting it up while
    person #3 works a long thin screw driver into the rear center
    hole to release the hook holding the center pin on the top

    once the top is off you can address the cable,
    oe linkage problem - not releasing

    usually it's the cable that's gone wonky
