      Several possibilities; leaking top cylinder, leaking top pressure or return hydraulic hose, leaking top hydraulic motor. As a first step, refill the top fluid reservoir and clean the leaked fluid - to help identify where the leak originates from. The Mercedes model years 1990-1996 have 12 hydraulic cylinders (!) in the top system.

      Check these websites and parts sources for more information and the replacement parts; www.convertibletopguys.com, www.pelicanparts.com, www.tophydraulicinc.com - to list only a few potential sources.

      The hydraulic hose and lift motor is located in the rear of the seats - just in front of the trunk space. You will have to remove one or more interior panels to access the unit and examine the system for leaks.

    HVAC. system not working properly, just started acting up in the last couple of miles.

      There is no way to diagnose this without the use of a scanner that can display live data and fault codes from the HVAC electronics. Very often a MB will lose the cold air and the led on the ac turn on button will remain illuminated at all times which indicates a problem already. Sometimes just erasing HVAC codes can get the system working normal again (for a short time) and sometimes not. There are so many sensors and components that the odds of you being able to decide what you should replace and then be correct is slim to none. You will throw parts at it and will not likely be successful. There are calibrations and software changes as well. I am a big proponent of the DIY trade but this one, IMHO, skip it. Bring to MB experienced tech.

    Left turn signal flash on its own without activating left turn switch
    Turn signal lever is in neutral position but left turn signal still flashes. I live in florida and this seems to happen when the car has been sitting for a few days.

      Several possibilities; faulty turn signal lever or switch, faulty turn signal flasher, faulty turn signal relay. I'd bet the issue is with the turn signal switch itself - due to the fact the problem is only on the left side signal.

      Check the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse, www.carpartswarehouse.com, or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts. For example (they) RockAuto list the turn signal switch (Beck/Arnley part # 2011969) from around $62.00 for your vehicle.

    I changed the car battery.. Power windows do not operate normally.

      if you changed the battery you have to reset the windows and the sun roof, this is done by holding down the control of each glass up and down until you reach the end of its travel and keep well for about 2 to 3 seconds, up or down. With the sun roof also have to do the same, take it to the end of its stroke by pressing and releasing the control, once it reaches the end of its run, maintain control down for 2 or 3 seconds-clockwi, or closing and opening the sun roof

    Both rear view mirrors on my C230 are intact w/ working motors, but they flop back & forth
    Both rear view mirrors on my c230 work but some component in the mounting is broken, as they flop back & forth. Is there a part I can repair or replace to stop this? And the glass in one is discolored; can the glass alone be replaced? Replacing the entire unit is ...

      Yes, try replacing just the mirror portion of the sideview mirror - rather than the entire assembly (housing and mirror) at much greater expense.
      Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.partsgeek.com and www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the outside mirrors (both left and right) from around $14.00 and around $20.00 each - depending upon which side.

      1. Attempt to resynchronize the windows by pressing the window up button until the window is completely closed and then hold the up button for an additional 5 seconds. This will resynchronize the express up feature of the window.

      2. Next press the window down button and allow the window to fully open. Hold the window down button for an additional 5 seconds once the window is fully open. This will resynchronize the express open feature of the window.

      3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each window.

      Thank you, I will give it a try when I get a chance. Someone also told me this is a convenience option for it to do this when pressing the key lock button down too long?

      This would be the washer nozzles - these are positioned to aim the windshield washer fluid to clean the windshield along with the wiper action.
