Question about 2008 Audi TT Coupe

Open Question

Stuck half way up convertible top

This is the 5th. time this has happened! Even after the recall to have the flap motors replaced. By now Audi should be able to fix this problem as I see over 7000 people have had the problem on google alone. I am fed up and have been stuck in the rain for the last time. We will see if Florida's Lemon Law works!! The 2008 3.2 roadster is a great car except for the top problem that Audi cannot repair.

Beetle servo motor stuck


All operations are handled by the convertible top control module. Assuming everything else works except the roof lock(s), the control module may not be getting the right inputs for locking. The convertible top operation switch could be defective or the top open/closed position switches could be defective or the linkage flap position sensors could be defective and finally, there could be a mechanical problem

Convertible top is stuck open


The motor might be bound up or a release for the top is not opening. Hopefully the drive gears for the top are not stripped out.

05 audi a4 convertible top goes half way up and stops. Won't go farther or back down


Happened to me while parking on a slight incline...moving to flat surface alleviated problem. However, my top stuck in down position so dealer replaced the module for $750...probably should be a recall item.

THE TOP WILL NOT GO UP. When I push the button and hold it nothing happens but when I let go the flaps come up and it sounds like it is going to go up but it doesn't. The flaps go back down but nothing...


I had the same problem. My right rear window regulator had failed, and when my top went down it would not go up again due to the failed regulator damaging something in the top. Out of warranty, but low mileage, my service rep had VW pay for most of the cost of repair. They also determined that the left window regulator would need to be replaced too- and I had already just had them put in a battery, so they had VW pay for 65% and the dealership paid 15% so my cost for repair was low. Now if they can just get my airbag light to stay off- just did the front crash sensor recall and 2 days later my left headlight come on and off with every bump on the freeway- until I tapped the glass and now my airbag light is on again. I have been fighting with the stupid airbag sensor since I got the car.

Convertible Top "Sensor"??


Hello,
I'm sorry, the message I got was to clarify my problem, and the problem was this: The power top on my 2008 TT Roadster would neither go up nor down via electronic control, and the emergency remedy, a.k.a. release the pressure on the pistons via wild goose chase through a hole in the driver's side deep in the trunk. REMEDY:
I took the car to the dealership and they replaced the "convertible top flap motors". The top works, but they laughed when I asked for an emergency pair, even though the service manager told me that the emergency piston release remedy recommended in the manual was pretty much useless. I must say that aside from my bitter words about the problem, and my consternation, there are few things that are as relaxing as a cruise around the Croton Reservoir system with the top down.

Does anyone know where the motor for the convertible top is located on a 01 pontiac firebird?


its actually a very intricate system of motors and support arms i wouldnt try to do it yourself. pontiacs are notorious for having problems with those type of motors like windows, headlights, and convertable tops. as a matter of fact i had a pontiac sunfire with the same problem i just got the convertable top up and left it that way cause it got stuck half way up once so stop using it till you get it fixed or you might have a permanent convertable.
