Question about 2007 Ford Mustang GT California Special Convertible

2 Answers

Replaced the convertible top on a 2007 Mustang Convertible, and now the rear windows will not go up. They're stuck in the down position. Is there a switch on the hydraulic system?

    Windows worked correctly before replacement. Nothing electrical disconnected other than heated glass. Wondering if this could be a computer issue (needs reset) or if there is a position switch that might need adjustment due to tension on new cover.

I just had this problem today on a 2008 Mustang. They would go up with the top open but not with the top down. The installer had no idea what was wrong so I googled it and found this thread. Noone had the answer. We thought it might be a sensor but Ford dealership said there were none on the windows so it had to be an obstruction. The installer started to look again and found that he had attached a Velcro strap on the wrong side of the strut arm in the back corners of the roof. It apparently blocked the window. Hope this helps the next person.

Convertible top coming away from glass window


This is a common problem. At the factory, the top material is bonded to the glass. That bond is breaking down. You can use Gorilla taps or urethane adhesive, but you will eventually need a new window unit.
The window unit is separate from the actual top. The top must be partially removed to replace the window unit.

Trunk,backend of car stuck in up position


My 2007 EOS stops with the truck up in the air, going up or down, when the temperature is very hot. The manual says if the hydraulic fluid gets too hot, you must wait for it to cool. I find this unsatisfactory as I live in a very hot state. I had it in the shop several times, then found this in the manual, and took it in again last week; the service manager at the dealer says he has seen reports of this, but there is not solution that he knows of. I am contracting the National Headquarters this week, and then an attorney if they do not remedy it as I only have a few more months of warranty to work with them....hope this helps.

2005 MUSTANG COVERTIBLE MY REAR WIDSHIELD GLASS IS FALLING OFF


This problem is very common and is known as delamination.
If the problem is not too far advanced, you can repair it with Urethane adhesive. It is used by glass shops to install windshields.
Your top and window unit are two separate parts.
If the problem is beyond repair, you will need to remove the rear half of the top and replace the window unit.

Putting together the 3 bows for convertible top


Do yourself and your Mustang convertible a favor. Have the top professionally installed. The bows are position sensitive and require adjustment so the top fabric is stretched just right. I had a 66 drop top that needed just fabric and I still paid a pro to do it.

The rear window for that top is a seperate curtain.
Replacement is best left to a professional.
You should cantact an automotive trim shop (upholstery) for them to quote it.

The way it is replaced, you have to take the top loose, roll it forward, replace the window curtain, reinstall the top. Depending on the condition if the top, it may need replacement also. That is best determined by the shop that does the work.
This is not recommend as a DIY project. I worked in a trim shop for years, and they are not easy.

2001 Mustang GT convertible won't go up


You are probably low on fluid.
Behind the rear seat is your motor/pump/reservoir combination.
With the top down, fill the reservoir to overflowing with ATF.
Cycle the system a few times and repeat.
Do this till the reservoir will take no more fluid.
Check the lines and cylinders for leaks. The fluid must be going somewhere.
If you replace any lines or cylinders, always do them in pairs.
