SOURCE: sun roof wont open all the way up/downbutton doesnt work at all

POSSIBLE SOLUTION!! There's a seperate Tilt button and a seperate Open/Close button. Hold the Tilt buton up and the Open/Close button up at the same time WHILE THE CAR IS ON. And then turn your car off while still holding the buttons. Then turn your car back on and it should work like brand new again. This re-programs the sunroof.

If this workds for you please email at to let me know thanks and GOOD LUCK!!!!

SOURCE: convertible top sticks, will not fully open

The support bar right above your head has 2 elastic bands attached to it, one on the drivers side and one on the passenger side. After time they lose their elasticity and don't pull this bar (the one with the top attached to it) down when you retract. If it doesn't pull down, it will stay up (forward) as the frame retracts and get jammed up in the rest of the frame. Worst case it will pop the metal clip which holds the center of the cloth top to it (it is the length of the bar and spot welded to it) off. It will also put holes in your top on both sides as they don't fold down under and instead get crimped in the frame. Temp solution is to push that bar down as it retracts. Permanent solution is to repair the elastic sooner than later before it wrecks havoc with the whole frame and motor.

2006 350z convertible soft top works hard back hatch will not go down

You need to have the codes scanned for the top. Their are many sensors and switches to these. Not to mention the mechanical parts. I suggest you don't use it till you have it diagnosed.

My 350z Nissan convertible top wont close all the way to the trunk

Lubricate every single part that moves in the top frame all the hinge points, use a light oil like 3 in1. Wipe off the excess do not get it on the interior trim like seats and door panels. Move the top up an down a few times to work the oil in and then try putting it all the way down. Good luck

My soft top is not working, wont go down, when I release the catch the windows go down and when i press the up button to close thr roof the windows close but roof doesnt

No doubt your soft top issue has long been resolved but just in case someone has a similar issue:
I started to open my A4 Soft top externally using the door key method and like an idiot I must have disengaged the key before the soft top was fully down. I was unable to activate the opening or closing of the soft top automatically using either the key or soft top switch inside. I then manually closed the soft top using the users handbook and manual tool supplied. Soft top would still Not open automatically and the soft top alarm would activate. I solved the issue by manually opening the soft top fully and then manually closing the soft top fully. This seemed to have reset whatever had gone askew.
