Question about 2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible
The electric wings on my 2003 VW Bug will not drop when letting the top down. They will drop when raising the top.My mechanic is at a loss as to what the problem is.
I have the same problem with my car. I just bought a 2004 VW Beetle and have never owned a convetible before. So when I saw the wings I asked if this was normal. The mechanic at the dealer said that on the 04 those wings do not retract when the top is down, only when the top is closed. Now my car will beep when I start driving because the top is not down all the way, also the indicator light shows a blinking car in the temp display letting me know the top in not down all the way. I read a solution from someone else and it said to keep keep the button to open the top pressed or pulled.......whichever is the way to open it...until the motor stops, but that did not work. So I decided to do a little research online and saw pictures of 2004 convertible VW beetles with the top down....low and behold the wings were retracted when the top was down. So the mechanic at the dealer lied. If these people do not know what their cars do and don't do, they should not be working there. They are compltley neglagant and incompitent. If anyone has an ansewr for me, it would be appreciated.

The expert I spoke with said that it had to do with a cord that makes the wings retract. If you get a flashlight to look to see if anything is disconnected. He also said it usually requires the rear seat to be taken out and he also said it was not fun. Hope this helps!
