Recently took mine apart using this guide below, and fixed it.

PROBABLY your plastic clips have shattered, and the trunion is now running in the metal groove, hence causing it to stick.

or it could be the switch in the dooor....

Take it apart and have a look!

I have a 2001 Elantra GT. with the auto trans in drive the trans slips when I'm doing 50-65 mph and the trans is in 4th gear if i have my foot to heavy on the gas. it doesn't do it as bad if I have...


First of all, Hyundai Transmissions use a 'specific' fluid called 'SPIII' and ONLY SPIII. Any other fluid doesn't meet Hyundai's specification and can cause 4th gear slippage (which is the TTC - Torque Converter Clutch - frequently referred to as the "lock-up" converter). You should have had a Check Engine Light. The problem you describe regarding 'doesn't drop back to first when I'm at a stop' sounds like the transmission has gone into 'Fail-Safe' mode because of the 4th gear ration incorrect. In "Fail-Safe" mode, the trans stays in 3rd gear until you cycle the ignition key off, and then back on. You need to scan your engine's computer to see what/which trouble codes have been set/stored in it. You'll need an OBDII scanner to read any codes that might be there. When a 'check engine light' (MIL=Malfunction Indicator Lamp) is turned on, there is a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) set/stored in the ECM/PCM (Engine Control Module/Powertrain Control Module). This code identifies which engine management system component/function experienced a malfunction. Once you pull/read this/these code(s), you can begin diagnosis.

1999 BMW 323i floor board front and back accumulate water. Convertible top does not leak. Is there a drain of some type that could clog? Apparently rain is causing the problem.


Under the carpet there is a rubber drain plug. Sometimes there are multiple plugs. My guess is that these plugs are leaking. They might have deteriorated or are just simply out of place. You're just gonna have to look at em.

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

Driver side power window ,sometime it works ,sometime it doesn t


Though the window switch is a possibility, more often then not, the window motor itself is starting to go bad. Intermittent loss of function is the most common initial sign. I recommend leaving the window up until the have the motor replaced. Otherwise you are risking having it stuck in the down position and never being able to get it back up without replacement. These things seem to happen at the worst time, like when its about to rain.

Try using the all windows up and down button (Drivers side on door), evidently after you change your battery this is the reset proceedure.
