Question about 2001 Ford Mustang
2001 Ford Mustang Convertable:
I have replaced the switch which was bad as it was broken by me trying to fix this problem. The motore of the convertable will pull the top back into the boot just fine. When I go to put the top back up, you can hear the motor trying, and if you get someone to hold the switch in you can manually pull the top up. Is this a problem a half-*** mechanic can fix, or best shop fixed. I am very good ith electrical issues, and learn quickly if I have directions to follow. Just don't want to make things worse by trying to fix. This almost sounds like a loose or broken belt, or even some tiype of clutch issue. Can you help with instructions, or steer me to a book or web site which can help me fix this issue.
I had the same problem with my 95 GT. You may have a leak in your system (motor, lines, cylinders). It seems there just isnt enough fluid to push the top up. I think Ford used the same system for 01 also. I had to replace the hydraulic cylinder that pushes the top up. My fluid leaked out because one of the cylinders was bad. This may be the problem. Located the motor and look for leaks.
