Cabriolet roof stopped halfway through opening

I have only had my 53 reg cabriolet for 4 weeks, but this has already happened TWICE! . i paid Audi #55.00 to reset the computer, they said their diagnostics said there is no other fault, but now it has happened again. I have only opened the roof four times.

    I have never previously had a problem in over 4 years with the roof, but I started to open it when the engine was running. Then I stopped the engine and the roof stayed in the half-open position. Now I can't open the roof or close it!! It is an 04 A4 Cabriolet

The problem may not be in the top itself rather the pistons/shocks that open the compartment lid. Try manually closing the top as directed in the owners manual and then try opening again. If it starts and then stops halfway you should have the pistons/shocks checked.

Make sure the car is on level ground. I had the same problem several times. Finally figured out in talking with the Audi service adivsor that if the car is on a hill (like my driveway) internal sensors can't tell the position of the top so it stops.

The owners manual has procedures for manually closing/locking the top.

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

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.
