    i'm not sure what you want. We had the top down when we got home we tried to put it up and it went half way and stopped. Now we have a sail on our car. It seems the metal piece that usually covers the top when it is down has not gone down all the way and the position it is in will not allow us to open the trunck. We have tried the lever unde the back seat but it didn't do any good. i have changed each of the fuses to no avail. We can't drive it anywhere until the
    top is either up or downl Do you have any idea how we can move the top either up or down so we can get it fixedl We called BMW dealers but they didn't have any idea what to do. I hope you can help us. Thank you

The rear drivers side passenger seat in my Mercedes 2004 ml350 is stuck down...how do get it to come back up. very little room to work


Not an easy task. You likely have one of 2 problems. If center seat belt is in the seat that is down, it may be locked. If so, you need to remove the seat back cover then the seat belt retractor. You can then position the seat belt retractor upright (how it sits when the seat is up) and pull the seat belt out making slack to raise the seat. This only happens if the either the stop on the seat belt is broken or the seat belt guide on the seat back is broken. If that's not the problem, you likely have a release cable that has come loose under the seat. If you look at the half that works, you can determine what you need to move on the locked seat and try to get to it with a long tin screwdriver or similar implement.

How does a manual top work on a 1998 BMW 323 I??


I believe you do this in this order. Roll windows down, release the latch at the top of the windshield, raise the front of the top, release rear cover by pulling the latch near the rear seat, Pull up the back of the top and then pull up on the rear cover. The back of the top should now fit into the opening under the rear cover. Continue to fold the top into this space. Push down on the rear cover to lock (won't be able to open trunk if not engaged.) To raise it, release rear latch cover, open rear cover and pull top out of opening. Raise rear of top so you are able to now close the rear cover, set rear of top down on cover and then pull fron of top down and engage the fraont latch. Hoe that helps.

My Peugeot 206cc boot lock is jammed and I can't open the boot


To open the boot from the inside is very simple: Pull down the back seat. You will see a dull metal hook on top in the small space between the lock on the boot and the plastic cover of the boot. Push upwards and the door will open. The panel covering the back door is held in with clips and can be easily removed by pulling away from the wipr first and pulling the rest away clip by clip: You will not break anything no matter how hard you pull. To put the panel back on just push the clips back in to place.

I'm trying to remove the headrest on my 2003 mustang front seat.


On the part that you squeeze to raise the head rest is a little hole on the inside between the 2 bars. You need to push a paper clip or something like that in the hole to release the stop and keep pushing as you lift. Once that is done then you can pull the rest out.

Good luck

Remove back seat


If I remember correctly, you can push down on the bottom half of the seat bench while pusing back towards the back of the car, it should release the latch system so you can pull the lower seat cushion out, the back rest portion of the seat may be bolted in.

How to put top down 1998 BMW Convertible


depends on what type of top you have (full power or power assisted).

if power assisted, then release the latches on the inside where the top meets the windshield, then hit the button on the lower dash (its near the button for the heated seats & traction control) and give it a little push with your hand to start it folding. it has a picture of a side window & top on it. pushing it one way lowers the top. you have to be in park (or drive with foot on brake) to lower it. hold the switch down, the side windows will lower a bit and the top will begin to move. keep holding it till the top tucks under the boot and the windows begin to go back up, then release it. if the light on this button is not flashing when you release it, then the top is tucked away properly. if still flashing, then keep it depressed until the top folding sequence is complete.

if a fully automatic top (you will not have latch releases on the top where it meets the windshield), then simply hit the button as described above. no need to push on the top during the beginning sequence. keep holding it until the windows begin to go back up, then release it.

for both, watch the top as it tucks into the boot. sometimes if the top is not properly aligned, the top cloth may not tuck correctly and may require some help from you. the sequence can be stopped any time, but the red light on this button will flash.

to put it back up, simply hit the button in the opposite manner and the sequence will start with the rear boot lifting up first. fully auto tops will lock automatically to the windshield. power assisted tops will require to lock the top. if red light on this button still flashes when released, then the sequence is not complete or has encountered an error.

hope this worked for you.

2007 chevy cobalt, trouble folding down back seat


(The engineers couldn't have hid these much better if they tried...)

1) Open the trunk lid all the way.
2) Look up under the inside top edge of the trunk opening.
3) You will see two 1" wide x 1/2" thick, black plastic knobs, about 1' apart from each other.
4) Pull straight back on a knob to release one of the back seat halves.
5) Go forward to the back seat compartment and lay each released seat the rest of the way down.
6) Paint the buttons white so the next person can find them easier!
