MY 92 500SL BENZ CONVERIBLE TOP IS STARTING TO ACT UP GOING UP AND DOWN VERY SLOW OR GET STUCK

1992 Mercedes Benz SL500 • 170,000 miles

When I press button the top moves slow and stop sometimes before going up or down all the way

Lubricate all of the pivot points with something like WD-40 or a dry graphite lube. Check to verify that the convertible motor/pump is receiving steady power during operation. Make sure nothing is binding the convertible mechanism. Our reference shows your convertible system to be electro-hydraulic, so also check the pump operation by verifying constant output pressure.
