Hi Guys,

I made a post last week regarding the problem I have with my recently purchased C180 Coupe. The roof doesn't work and I am looking for someone who knows how to fix this.

I am based in Borehamwood, North London so would really really appreciate some help.

Thanks

Nick

If you bought it from a dealer does it still have warranty?

The roofs have a habit of sticking, and the motor does not have enough power to open the roof. these roof motors have a thermal trip,30 seconds in the case that means that if the roof does not open on the first press as it is too tight, the trip operates and nothing will happen till another 30 seconds has past and the trip re set. The Mercedes answer is to apply 12volt to the motor direct, access through the OCP but not easy to do yourself if not that way inclined,

I would say WG will be a good man to do the job as he is very near you

Assuming Malcolm means Wayne Gates the number is 020-8863 9233

He's in Harrow but I imagine that may be near enough.

If it's urgent, I would assume it's stuck open. Lol! ;)

With the "summer" weather we are having, a non-opening sunroof is hardly urgent.......
