Might help someone out, I had a problem today with an SLK roof. Customer found roof sticking at the front while trying to open, but a thump over the manual release cover above the rear view mirror would get it moving. Accessed the mechanism by removing three screws each side holding headliner side trims and three screws in the front shut area that hold the headliner. Both front latches were working correctly, but there is a cable attached to each latch that operates a further latch at the side, above the tiny rear 1/4 window. These cables have an adjuster each at the front section, and a small adjustment of each was all that was necessary to rectify the fault. If demand exists I could take some pictures...
