That has happened to me before. It's not sensing everything in the right place. Try moving the cargo rack away and then getting it back into spot again. Maybe this time it will sense it. It just needs to know the trunk is ready for it and then it will go down again.

How to remove luggage rack


Open up your owners manual, most likely still in the glove box, and find the section under heading "luggage rack." This will give you basic removal instructions.

I purchased a Hyundai 00285-03006 fully enclosed luggage carrier and the instructions are one picture with no words. The picture does not describe where the carrier is in the picture, where the rails fit...


That same luggage carrier is sold (as OEM approved equipment) for MANY different makes and models of automobiles. From what I can see, it simply clamps onto the cross-rails on your luggage rack. (Not much instruction needed) It does require however, that you have a luggage rack and a cross-rail kit. The cross-rail kit is sold separately. I would give you the part number, but the cross-rail kit varies depending on your make, model, and year.

08 Sebring Convertible trunk wont latch it acts like the bar the latch is attached to has not returned to the home position?


I had the same problem on my 08 convertible. Every time I opened the trunk I was having to "bend" the upper catch to match the lower latch. I didn't want to take it to the dealer because they would charge me an arm and a leg.
Here is the quick fix:
Remove the latch plate (attched to the body with a spring) this requires a rachet and 1/2" socket or 1/2" wrench. Place 2 to 3 washers behind the latch plate over the bolts, not between the bolts and the plate. You have to be careful or you will drop the washers. Tighten the bolts and whala! the trunk lid closes and locks.
Better fix.
Get a piece of 1/8" or 3/16" metal the same size as the latch plate and drill two holes to match. Place it between the latch plate and the body to act as a shim. Replace the latch plate and bolts as described above. This method will provide better stability.
Hope this helps.

I can't get my convertible top to go up or down, it is stuck half way. Is there a manual release for it?


The convertible top motor and release lever are in the luggage compartment.
From the Bentley manual, the following general procedure is suggested in order to close the top in an emergency situation.
Main motor. To release the top linkage from the motor, lift the left corner of the rear seat to access emergency release handle.
It is then possible to push the top manually to a near closed position. In case of the semi-automatic top, simply attach and lock the front latches.
Front latches. Once the fully automatic convertible top has been released from the motor and manually pushed to near-closure, emergency latching of the top is possible by using the S-shaped hex key provided in the emergency tool kit(attached to the trunk lid underside).
First, remove the the plastic cover over the latch motor in the front bow of the convertible top.
Next, use the hex key from the tool box to crank the front latches shut.

Top lowering problem on 2004 Saab Aero Convertible


I have a 2004 Saab 9-3 Arc convertible that had the same problem. The spring on the hinge assembly for the package shelf latch assembly was broken. The part itself is over $300. If you have someone remove the spring, your top will work again. You'll just have to put up with the top shelf hanging down in your trunk about 1 foot, but you can still manually move it to place things inside like your luggage or golf clubs.
