The hydraulic fluid may be low. the pump is located in the right side of luggage compartment. it has a plastic fluid reservoir which often has hair line cracks near the mounting screws. fluid seeps through cracks. reservoir needs to be replaced.

83 mustang convertible top won't go up or down/what's the problem?


There could be several causes - rusty or dirty flex joints ( the point where the metal arms contact each other ) or either bad contacts in the motor or a bad motor. Using a multimeter to test resistance would be my first step after lubricating all of the flex joints. You didn't mention if you can hear the electric motor working while trying to move the top - if not, then you may have found the culprit. that motor could be worn out - or at least in need of a rebuild !I'm not sure where that motor is located on a beemer, but calling a local friendly shop may guide you in the right direction. It IS 31 years old - and time is not nice to electronics!!
Hope this helps!!

I have a 1999 323i bmw and the convertable top doesnt work the light is blinking and i dont know how to check if the motors work what wires do i hook it up to and how can i test everything else


i had the same problem with my 1998 bmw 323i and right under the back drivers seat there is an emergency convertible top lever with a orange tip on it. i removed my back seat to make it easier. when you pull that lever, you will hear a bang sound. that is the sound of the motors disengaging.(there are 3 top motors in the trunk by the left side panel when you remove it) you will then have full access of movement to either put the top up or down. But before you do any of this, i Really suggest you watch this youtube video. if this link doesnt work, you can go to youtube.com and type in bmw convertible top motor stuck and click on the first link BMW DIY #3 E36 Top Repair. I suggest watching the whole video first before attempting or if you want, you can have a mechanic do it! hope this helps

Mustang 2001 convertible top goes up but not down.


Sounds like the switch is bad. Also check the relays. You might have one for up and one for down.

Convertable top wont go down..I hear motor running


Your top motor is in the trunk on the drivers side wall behind the panel. Remove the two screws to remove the cover. Check the fluid level in the reservor. Check that no lines have come off of the pump and have someone pushing the top down button while checking. If this is not the problem, then it is a possibility that the e-brake connection is not working right.

Convertable top will go down but will not come back up.


I had the same problem with my 95 GT. You may have a leak in your system (motor, lines, cylinders). It seems there just isnt enough fluid to push the top up. I think Ford used the same system for 01 also. I had to replace the hydraulic cylinder that pushes the top up. My fluid leaked out because one of the cylinders was bad. This may be the problem. Located the motor and look for leaks.
