I brought my 1994 SL500 to the dealer because the soft top switch
light and 'beeping' would not go off (the top was up and locked, but
it wasn't recognized as being up). They said that it was the soft top
control unit, whcih would cost about $1500.
Also while cycling the top up and down a few times to get the light to
go off and the beeping to stop, the plastic window tore. This was
quoted to cost another $2,000 to fix.
So my questions for you all are-

control unit, and is it a difficult item to replace myself?
2 - is there a source and would you recommend replacing just the
plastic window, or does the whole back part of the top need to be
Thanks for your help!
