Dennis is correct( I should slow down when I read these problems thought convertible would not move at all.)

If top goes up half way and stops , you hear pump motor running cause there is a leak in hydraulic system .Use a repair manual to do tear down so you can locate the leak. Take ALIEVE before you venture this , could be a little hard on back and knuckles. Good luck

Battery will not remain charged. Something continues to run after shut down. Can hear small motor running when ignition turned off. Stops when door is opened. Suspect door lock system.


Disconnect each fuse, one at a time, when the noise stops you found which motor. Now u can find the electrical short in the circuit.

Need motor for 1990 olds toronado headlight covers.Where can I find one?


You may be able to find one on eBay. Have you checked the relays for the motor? There is one to open and one to close.

High pitched whine to the right front passenger side that appears to increase with acceleration


It is a wheel bearing, no doubt.
the wheel bearing is pressed in so if you do the job yourself you will need to take the hub somewhere to have the new bearing pressed in, but 100% the bearing.

My electric sunroof has stopped working on my vw golf 1999 1.4. It opened half way on its accord when I locked the car and stopped half way. Now it does not want to open nor close. Last week it worked fine...


Hi,
Usually, when a part of car that is run by battery failed, first
thing to check is the FUSE from the main fuse box or
a fuse box somewhere under the hood. Next is to locate the
motor that drives the sunroof and have a qualified electrical
mechanic check the motor, If the fuse is Ok, and still
stopping, then check motor and you may find that only the
carbon is the problem. If still the carbon is ok and the
sunroof still stop, you may ask the mechanic to check and
test the "Stator" and "Rotor" that has failed and may require
rewinding of the coil wire.

The trunk of my 2007 Eos convertible won't close


i havent ever had this problem but i'm familiar with the eos so i can say almost undoubtedly that the you have a bad trunk latch. there is a switch in the trunk latch that tells it if it's closed or open and i'm guessing that the switch is bad. once the switch tells the car that the trunk is closed, it runs the motor that close the trunk fully.

however, i say again that i've never had this problem on an eos so there is a fair amount of room for other issues. volkswagens are rather complicate and use a lot of different switches and such in the convertible top. also, the only way to know for sure is to bring your vehicle to the vw dealer becuase only the vw 5051 scan tool is capable of reading the inputs and outputs of the convertible top control module and this is what is required to properly diagnose the problem. don't waste your time throwing parts at it, the dealer should be able to give you a 100% positive diagnosis with one hours labor (about $90)

I have a 1999 VW Beetle, and the interior lights come on when the passenger door is opened, but not when the drivers door is opened. Where's the switch?


ah, This is a very common VW issue. Hopefully yours is just gunked up like mine was. i just fixed mine today. here's how...

1. open drivers door, put key in ignition and turn to "run" position (this so you can hear the dinger)

2. trip the latch in the door so it clicks TWICE locked, you'll see.

3. now at the bottom of the latch there is a void you've exposed. Get a Can of contact cleaner, or brakecleaner and HOSE under the latch piece. I mean firehose the hell out of it for a bit, then open and close the door a dozen times or so to work the latch.

4. Repeat as necessary. Plan to use up at least half a can. I had it running out of the door drains. Hopefully this frees up the gunk that probably has built up.

5. Regardless if this does work or not, finish up with something like a few good shots of PB Blaster, WD 40, or some light lubricant. Maybe it will work free over the next day or so.

If this unfortunatly doesn't do the trick the switch might be physically broken. Either spend $170 on a new one or google '$3 vw door fix' if you feel like MacGyver.
