My owner's manual does not explain how to manually open and close the convertible top. My power will not work so I must now use the manual process. How do I do it?

    It is a 2004 Audi TT Roadster - not a 2001.

You should be able to just tug it up gently by grasping any of the frame. My power works fine, but I can also do it manually when the key is out. Goes back manually the same way.

    Now, we manually open the top but the power closes it. Audi wanted $750 to fix it - so I can easily get by letting the car have a mind of its own.

Convertible top will not close /open


I have had this problem with my 2005 S4 Cab - sometimes the top will not latch. I have found that this was because the fabric near the rear passenger window was not folding into place over the steel structure. I just back up the top and made sure the fabric unfolded and all was well.

Convertible top won't go down on my 1998 bmw 323ic


Sounds like the sensor has faulted or the pump has become disengaged. Usually when the light is flashing it's a sensor. You can check for a pinched line or low fluid also. There is a manual lock overide procedure to get the windows up, it's in you owners manual.
Good luck...i hope this helps,

Lowering convertible top


There should be latches you have to pull first to unlock the top from the windshield. Pull down the sun visors, the handles should be under them. Then push the power top switch.

Location of lighter fuse


Check in your owners manual for the location of the fuse you are looking for if you can...I believe the fuse box is close to the doorjam on the driver side, visible when you have the door open. There may be a schematic on the plastice panel you open to get to the fuses explaining the locations, but the owners manual will be much more detailed. Good luck

I have JAGUAR XK8 CONVERTABLE the roof is slightly open and wont shut how do I close it manually


Hmm, you may need to get the dealer to adjust the cables. Also make sure the pump has fluid (right side trunk, behind the cover). Once the top comes down to the top of the window, you can see the device that should pull it down tight. In an emergency, there is a hex key in the right side of the trunk that you can use to manually bring that down tight. Your vehicle manual explains how to do this emergency operation.

How to raise and lower the 328ci convertible top manually


I just bought a 1996 328iC (the "C" is for convertible). I bought the car with the knowledge that the roof needed a motor replacement (~$300 for the part alone + ~1-2 hours labor) and that I would need to open and close the roof manually if I wanted to take advantage of the convertible part of the car.

After some trial and error, I figured it out and now it takes me <30 seconds to open or close the top (manually). Note: my top is a semi-electric roof, which I think is what came on the 328iC, you have to lock into place after you close it.

Here's what you do:
1- open all of the windows
2- unlock the roof by turning the latch between the sun visors.
3- push the front of the roof towards the rear of the car - be sure to push in the middle of the roof, where the latch is.
4- lift the back of the roof up off of the roof storage compartment
5- while holding the back of the of the roof up, lift up the roof storage compartment door
6- let go of the back of the roof so that it drops right into the storage compartment
7- push the rest of the roof into the storage compartment
8- close the storage compartment door.

To close the roof, follow the steps above in reverse order. Remember: this is a German car, so you use a little bit (or a lot) of force and you won't hurt it (I think it actually likes it ;-D ).

Good Luck!!!

You can close the top manually. The instruction on how to do this should be in your owner's manual.

Auto roof stuck


It happened to mine as well. When I took it to the dealership, they explained that if the top is interrupted while opening or closing (sometimes unintentionally our finger may slip off and stop the process for a brief time) the top can get out of synch and needs to be reset. They did some type of fuse reset and then it worked fine.
