Question about 1994 Audi Cabriolet

Open Question

I have a 1995 Audi convertible with the same problem as everybody else, when you release the t-bar the windows go down and the roof starts to move however the lid only lifts 4 inchs and drops again. I have done all the test I can possibly do even taking it to the audi agents. The out come is they say I need a new pump. Any idea who might have a good second hand? Mine has 8 cylinders on top not 6 like some others. Please can you help.... John

SOURCE: Rear lid (houses top), opens only 1/4, stops, hums, and prevents roof from retracting in storage beneath lid.

As noted in one of the earlier questions on the topic, it appears (will verify for certain after the pump is removed) the plastic resevoir tank has cracked and the hydraulic fluid was lost. Leakage was visible in trunk once spare tire removed.
Audi also noted this is not unusual for a vehicle this age, and the replacement tank is a $100 kit.

This can be over come by getting a pair of vise grips and gripping the cable that is sticking out and pulling it out, once you have opened it Do not attempt to close the hood without replacing the cable. You have maybe only one chance at this so if you don't succeed you will make it harder for a mechanic to fix it. a new cable is not to difficult to replace, buy the cable and housing replace both.

SOURCE: Audi Convertible Roof broken

i can,t see why all these should need to be replaced,you need to get a more detailed report of what exactly they want to replace and for what reason in my experience dealerships dealing with roof faults will replace parts one by one untill the problem is fixed and surely the dealer should cover the cost of the repair if the roof faulted after only 3 weeks

Want to convert my electric audi 80 roof into a manual one


no need to convert.
the electic roof can be opened manually by:-
unlock the roof using the handle on top of the windscreen and push roof back as far as posible.
lift flaps adjacent to door pillers
you will see a small lever which can be retracted (both sides)
when these levers are retracted the roof will push down fully into its compartment
when erecting the roof ensure that the two levers are fully open to accept the roof retaing lugs

My 2007 audi tt convertible roof is stuck in an open position and will not close or open


I believe that the motor went bad on you that lets the roof to open or close but also you could have a connection problem or short in the wires. Have you in the past heard the motor move the roof open or close or never noticed it at all?

Hi, i have a 1998 saab 93 convertible, and suddenly the roof, drop top does not go down, i dissengage the manual locking mechanism, press the button to lower the roof, but nothing happens. I have no...


Check fuses and relays first. Then check the wire connections at the motor. Sometimes the plugs get corroded and just need cleaned up and put back on.

Can you first look in the owners manual , there is a procedure for simple solutions .

If there is a problem with the shelf in the trunk the roof will not function properly.

open the trunk and pull the lever , does the shelf move up and down or is it jammed .

If it does not work the shelf needs replacement .

Ascan tool may be needed to read ant logged faults .

Audi 2005 A4 Cabrio...roof stuck partially down. How do I fix?


This has happened to my wife's 2004 A4 Convertible 2x's. I had to read the owner's manual several times to get the job done correctly (pages in the high 70's to low 80's) ...the following is offered from memory: The handle/tool needed to accomplish the task 'manually' is located in the fuse box on the LEFT SIDE of the dashboard. A small flat blade screwdriver will enable you to pry open the fuse cover & gain access to the handle/tool. Slight twist the tool and it comes out easily. Tool is a "T" shaped handle. Once you have the handle/tool IN HAND, simply turn the RED part (only) on the handle until it 'locks' in an open position. Leaves a small space on the handle. Can't recall if you go clockwise or counterclockwise, but it will be evident. Now...move both front seats forward and tilt them to gain access to rear seat. Remove the ski boot cover in middle of the rear seat and put aside. Then, 'click' the interior boot cover panel down to gain access to a 'hole' (about size of a 50 cent piece) in the top of the boot space. This hole allows you to insert (upward) the above mentioned tool into a lock/unlock mechanism in the rear deck just forward of the trunk. The tool needs to be jiggled to go 'all the way' in...you will sense that. Once in, TURN the RED part of the handle to "LOCK" the handle into the mechanism. The tool will hang down by itself. My approach is to 'store' the roof in the open convertible position first. The front portion of the roof should be partially forward as that appears to 'release' a lever within the roof's up/down mechanism to allow you to raise the rear window portion. Thus, lift (with that friend) the rear window portion up and forward (takes some effort). The roof now has a kind of 'clamshell' appearance front & rear. The front may even flop forward but tht's OK. This step exposes the rear deck. Twist the tool to unlock the rear deck. It should click & release and a small space appears enabling you to use hands (that friend again) under it (the deck). Lift the deck up & back until the hydraulics kick in and keep the deck vertically open. Now you are ready to tackle the roof & rear window for storage under the rear deck cover. Get a friend, if possible to help with the lifting...remember, this is a "Manual" job! Once here, gently push back & lower the rear window portion of the roof into the open storage area simultaneously followed by the remainder of the roof itself. Watch fingers for possible pinching in the levers, etc., during this part of operation Hopefully you now have the roof & rear window stored in the area in front of trunk and be able to lower the rear deck to almost closed position. If so, go back to the tool and twist it to 'lock' the deck in place with roof stored. Remove tool from the ski storage area by reversing procedure above. Now comes the "Moment of Truth"! With the ignition turned on and car running, use the roof switch to bring the stored roof up and all the way to the closed position. Don't forget you must keep your finger on that switch until the operation completely finishes. Then, reverse the process to open & store the roof for a good blow dry (drive)!

Electrict roof warning light aluminates and roof won't rase


The problem is most likely a faulty micro-switch, on the driver's side, under the tonneau cover. Unfortunately, it's impossible to accurately diagnose without a Bentley diagnostic computer, which will have to be performed at a Bentley dealer. As for the windows, the proper way to program the "one-touch" windows is to start with the front. Fully raise the front windows, release the switch, then hold it in the up position for a few seconds (you will hear the door module/window motor click) then fully lower the window, release the switch, and hold it in the down position for a few seconds. This will program the front windows, now do the same in the rear. Low battery voltage will usually cause the windows to lose their programming. You should have the vehicle attached to a Bentley battery tender whenever it is going to sit longer than a few days. The vehicle has 2 batteries, one only starts the car (right-side/start battery), the other (left-side/main battery) runs all of the electronics. Most people think, as long as the car starts, the battery is ok. That is not so with these vehicles. The car will start, even if the main battery is totally dead, or vice-versa. The installed battery tender attaches to the main battery, and comes with a neatly installed wiring harness, and a AGM battery approved battery tender. This will help avoid many different annoying electrical malfunctions.
