Question about 1990 Mazda RX-7

1 Answer

Convertible will not rise or lower

The Convertible top on my 1990 top will not rise or lower. Is there a connection that I need to connect or is this a bigger problem? The previous owner did not want it to rise or lower so he took it to a shop to disconnect something. How do I undo this?

There are many things that could have been disconnected.
Take it to the same shop and have it re-connected.
If the previous owner will not tell you which shop did it, he is probably lying and the system is simply broken.

Top worked fine yesterday but today tried to let down only clicked


It is a hydraulic pump that applies pressure to the 2 hydraulic pistons to raise & lower the top. So, check for something obstructing movement first.

The convertible top:
  • is motor-driven.
  • requires parking brake engaged to complete circuit for operation.
  • is equipped with a back window glass (42006) . The back window glass is permanently attached to the folding top back window curtain (52500) and cannot be opened.

I have a 1990 lumina apv. Lately When I have the heater going I cannot turn the heat down. I lower the "thermostat" to cooler but it remains hot. I can lower the blower speed but not get it to...


You need to check the blend door on the heater box to see if it is working by hand.The door is behind the glove box near top of heater box.Make sure it is connected to its control lever

My convertible top wont go up


You are probably low on fluid.
Behind the rear seat is the motor/pump/reservoir.
With the top down, fill the reservoir with ATF.
Cycle the system a few times.
Repeat till the reservoir will accept no mor fluid.
Chedk the lines and cylinders for leaks. The fluid must be going someplace.
You can change it to a manual top by removing the bolt at the top of the cylinders and lowering the both shafts down into the cylinders.

Window up and down


if ur buying new, you can only buy the whole assembly....motor and relay...you may be able to pick up a motor at a salvage yard, but they are hard to find...as far as getting to the window motor....remove the seat....remove the panel on the side....remove 2 top bolts and 1 lower bolt...you will have to remove the insulation tape to get to the lower bolt....then you can pull it strait out, disconnecting the wires connected to the bottom of the motor.

Letting the top down


I had the same problem for four years until I purchased a CD from Ebay titled "BMW E30 Convertible". I discovered, that I was opening the top up incorrectly. The top works fine. Unlatch the top from the windshield frame, then lift up the back half of the top, unlatch the top lid, rise it up and lower the top into the compartment, close and latch the soft top lid. Hopes this helps.

Convertible top's motor is out, is there another way to get it up?


you will have to find out where the motor is and disconnect the arm or mechanism on the motor and then you will be able to pull it up manually also just check the fuse for the top motor if you havent already hope that helps.
