My top will not go down


Take it to VW. These electrohydraulic systems are complex and several switches must be working correctly for the top to lower. It has also been caused by a fault VSS ( Vehicle Speed Sensor.) sending a speed signal to the top controller when vehicle is stationary.

Rear window motor failure is common and if window motor is bad, top will not deploy.

VW dealer can scan the controller and hopefully pinpoint the fault. You are not alone !

The electric wings will not drop when letting the top down.


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.

1999 vw cabrio convertible top doesn't works


You have to put hydraulic fluid (power steering fluid will work too) in the convertible top motor. The motor is in the trunk, on the left hand side, under a panel. Pull the panel off and that is the electric motor for the top. You'll see a reservoir where you put in the fluid. Put in the fluid and you'll be good to go.

THE TOP WILL NOT GO UP. When I push the button and hold it nothing happens but when I let go the flaps come up and it sounds like it is going to go up but it doesn't. The flaps go back down but nothing...


I had the same problem. My right rear window regulator had failed, and when my top went down it would not go up again due to the failed regulator damaging something in the top. Out of warranty, but low mileage, my service rep had VW pay for most of the cost of repair. They also determined that the left window regulator would need to be replaced too- and I had already just had them put in a battery, so they had VW pay for 65% and the dealership paid 15% so my cost for repair was low. Now if they can just get my airbag light to stay off- just did the front crash sensor recall and 2 days later my left headlight come on and off with every bump on the freeway- until I tapped the glass and now my airbag light is on again. I have been fighting with the stupid airbag sensor since I got the car.
