I have a 1997 vw golf - the roof fabric is drooping down - wondering what it the best/cheapest option of getting this fixed. also the lock on the drivers side has broken, wondering if i am able to switch the working lock from the left passenger side with the drivers lock, or will i need to replace the lock entirely?

1997 BMW 328i Convertable Top wont go up or down Replaced atomatic locking fex rods at windshield locking device . what next should I check


Check the electric motors at that are located underneath the fabric in the trunk of the car. One is behind the left tail light the other underneath the roof hold.

First open them up if the gears are exposed it means that they are not engaged. To re engage simply push them back into place.

Before re engaging manually bring up the roof and then press the roof sequence button.

To make sure that the roof electric motors are functioning before re engaging let someone press the button and check that the gears move, While disengaged they will only move for about 5 to 10 seconds.

VW Golf 2002 central locking


this sounds like a stuck switch in the door lock assembly. it will make the locking system work like its got a mind of its own. The best fix is to first try cleaning the latch on the door it has a switch to tell the car if the latch is open/closed. Use an old tooth brush with some degreaser scrub the base of the latch on the door. After its cleaned up relube it with some white grease or dry graphite. Then try the lock again. If this doesn't solve it then the lock assembly has a faulty switch inside and replacement is the best option
