Convertible top overide?

Just purchased this vehicle and I'm trying to figure out if there is a manual way to open the convertible top. I think the motor may be burned out.

I am ready to purchase a 2000 cabriolet. The power convertible top isn't working so have to manually put up/down convertible top. How can I test to see whether it's the motor, switch, or other...


Hi Gil.Please locate the fuse box in your car that contains the fuses related to these accessories, eg convertible, CD player, lighter, door locks/windows etc.The location of the fuse box would be in the user manual provided with your car.If you donot have a user manual then it should be in under the hood or the dashboard ( behind the glove compartment ).See if the fuse relating to the convertible is OK.If its bad then replace it with a fuse of the same value.If the other fuse too goes bad then you probably have jammed motor of the convertible which is putting extra stress on the fuse, or that your wiring gets short somewhere when you press the button for the convertible to work.If you want to test the switch then simply pull the connectors of the switch from its behind and touch them with eachother if the convertible then works then the switch is bad.Regards.

Convertible top won't go back up, can you help?


IT is probably a fuse. Does it work at all? my mustang had a busted cylinder and only 1 side would go up. If it doesnt work at all then check your fuses. With no manual you will have to use a flashlight and shine on them and see if one is blown. IF they all look good then I would go buy a testlight for about $10 and manually check the fuses for power. It oculd be the motor, however that will cost you several hundred dollars and that is if you install it yourself.

The convertible roof leaks and also needs a


If you need a manual, you need a factory manual. Aftermarket manuals seldom address the convertible top.
Convertible tops seldom leak till they are 5-6 yrars old unless the material is defective.
Your problem is probably weatherstrips.
Either they are damaged or out of place.
Door window adjustment will also cause a leak at the weatherstrip.
If the water is in the rear of the car, you probably have plugged drains.
Convertibles leak at the rear from new. there is a gutter that directs the water to drain holes near the rear wheels. If the drains get plugged, the water will seep into the rear carpet or trunk.
Solution...clear the drains.

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,

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!!!
