Question about 1999 BMW 323 Series
I have a 1997 Chevy Cavalier convertible, and recently when I engage the convertible top, it rises about halfway and stops. It goes down just fine, but does not close all the way. Is there a manual release for the convertible? And also, is there a problem with the convertible motor perhaps?
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.
