I believe it's electric. It sounds like the motor is going bad. In theory, it would be harder for the motor to lift it, than it would to lower it.

I hope this helps

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.

My convertible top wont go up


You are probably low on fluid.
Behind the rear seat is the motor/pump/reservoir.
With the top down, fill the reservoir with ATF.
Cycle the system a few times.
Repeat till the reservoir will accept no mor fluid.
Chedk the lines and cylinders for leaks. The fluid must be going someplace.
You can change it to a manual top by removing the bolt at the top of the cylinders and lowering the both shafts down into the cylinders.

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

Does anyone know where the motor for the convertible top is located on a 01 pontiac firebird?


its actually a very intricate system of motors and support arms i wouldnt try to do it yourself. pontiacs are notorious for having problems with those type of motors like windows, headlights, and convertable tops. as a matter of fact i had a pontiac sunfire with the same problem i just got the convertable top up and left it that way cause it got stuck half way up once so stop using it till you get it fixed or you might have a permanent convertable.

Convertible top VERY slow going UP


HI, there may be some voltage issues here. i would make sure the wiring is OK and not separated or torn. Also, i would use a muti meter to check the voltage. the last issue could be a weak motor due to age. i would start by checking the wires and voltage.
