Anyone in Dallas experienced with taking a hard top off the SL

Hi there. The weather here is just gorgeous and would love to take off the hard top my new, well new to me (3 months), older (1986) MB560sl. I have tried and it seems to get hung up in the back. I know the larger lever unlocks it but the smaller lever does not seem to feel like it is doing anything when I am moving it. Now then again, I am not sure how it really is supposed to feel. Any advice.

Thank you all.

New 560sl owner

I Don't Have A Sl But You Need A Hoist Or Another Person To Do It Right.

Taking the Hard Top Off

I had the same problem with my 88. The levers with the play in them do not open the back lock sufficiently. I moved the hard to toward the back to free the lock. It is quite heavy and you definitely need a helper. I also changed my soft top with a new one and now rarely use the hard-top. I think, for Dallas the soft top is fine. Hope it works out for you.
