Rebuilding Hydraulic latch cylinders Mercedes convertible R129, W124 convertible
How to rebuild the front windshield hydraulic latch cylinders on a Mercedes
R129..W124 models rear latch and more recent clk are very similar..The seal
kit was from Konstantin Belov at MBseals http://www.mbseals.com/
He was really good to deal with and shipped very quickly..he uses an
upgraded seal that will resist the leakage problems the original seals
have..The latch cylinders are very easy to do yourself,unlike the main
cylinders which would be better left to a professional rebuilder...I can
not stress enough that you purchase the correct hydraulic fluid from a
Mercedes dealership when topping up the fluid.

1991 Mercedes-Benz 500SL Roadster Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 1991 Mercedes Benz-500SL.
I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this
car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
Mercedes R129 500SL hydraulic top cylinder leak
In case anyone wants to know what is going on when your sunvisors start
dripping hydraulic fluid in your lap..this is what is leaking. It is the
hydraulic actuator that latches and unlatches the roof at the top of the
windshield. Once it leaks both sides need to be replaced or sent out for
rebuild (much cheaper) they are easy to remove and I will be making a
video shortly on replacing the leaking cylinder,
