The system is operated by hydraulic pressure the pump you hear is the hydraulic pump running, but your fluid has leaked out due to a problem in the lines or the cylinders that lift the top, you have to tear it apart and find the leaking parts.

The roof on my convertable Peugeot 306 will not work on the button. It did go down but i had to push it half way to catch the motor, now it wont do anything. Can anyone help? Thanks Jay


The roof is operatyed by a hydraulic pump, the system has most likely develop a leak in the hoses to the lift cyinders or the cylinders. Have a dealer check the fuelid level and invitigate for leaks if it is low.

Electric roof not working on bmwz3 tried it with ignition on our of gear and foot on break worked two days ago


Turn the key forward to the spot just before cranking, emergency break on, windows down (slightly or all the way, no difference), foot on break, roof unlatched and pushed back slightly. Once you push the roof up slightly, it should trigger a microswitch that allows the motor to turn on. If you listen closely, you can hear it. Can you hear the motor turning? If not, check the fuse and any microswitches. If they check good it could be the "motor." I say "motor" like that because its actually a pump to a hydraulic system. It sits in the trunk on the left wheel well. Its very easy to replace.
If you do hear the motor, go to the trunk and look at the system on the left wheel well. There is a hydraulic reservoir under the pump. If you cant see any fluid in there, that is your problem. To fill it, turn the T-handle on the pump counterclockwise. This will depressurize the system and also allow you to manually operate the roof. Next to the T-handle is a cap that requires an allen wrench to remove. Remove it and fill to the little dot inside a circle with hydraulic fluid. This can be a little trick to reach; I used a turkey baster!! After filling to appropriate level, put cap back on and then turn T-handle clockwise and secure it. Now operate the roof a few times with the button to build up some pressure. Now your roof should be operating properly!!

2001 vw cabrio convertible top won't go up or down


Am I correct in assuming that you have an electric roof? I recently saw in my manual that there is a hydraulic lift that you can access from the trunk of the car. It looks like it is on the left side wall close to the opening. The following is taken directly from the manual:
"If the power system is not operating properly you can still close the roof by hand. 1. Remove protective cover and open luggage compartment lid. 2. Turn screw on hydraulic pump counterclockwise until it stops. 3. Close the luggage compartment lid. 4. Swing the top forward by grabbing it with both hands, lift and push it forward. 5. Lock roof in place. 6. Turn the screw on hydraulic pump clockwise until it stops. Use the same procedure in reverse order to open the power roof manually."

93 convertible top wont go down


This happenrd to me the first few times after filling the tank. When the roof stops push the switch to up then back until movement stops then go back to down, eventually it will get rid of all the air in the system and the roof should start to work.
