Problem with 07 Solstice Convertible latch

I went to put the top up on my 07 Pontiac Solstice this morning and one of my convertible latches (the cloth buttress) wouldn't latch. I made sure the top was centered and secured, windows up and down. Opened and shut the trunk, but the passenger side would not latch.

Solstice converible 2007. tried to put the top on but it will not even reach far enough to latch. Just won't move forward enough.


If nothing is jammed, do it at high noon when the sun can heat and expand the top. It may have shrunk after being down.

How do you put the top down. I have a rental, and their is no owner's guide.


1.Empty the trunk of all contents
2.Park on a level surface and set parking brake, shift auto trans into Park or manual into R
3.Turn the ignition off.
4.Open the trunk.
5.Pull down the convertible top latch located above the rearview mirror and turn it counterclockwise to unlatch . Leave the latch open and turned to prevent damage.
6.Pull rearward on the side edge of the convertible top and pull it off of
the windshield frame.
7.Push the convertible top down into the trunk
8.After the top is stored, push on the convertible top to ensure that the top is fully retracted and securely stored.
9.Close thet runk by pressing down from the rear center of it with a swift, firm motion.

I can't get my convertible top to go up or down, it is stuck half way. Is there a manual release for it?


The convertible top motor and release lever are in the luggage compartment.
From the Bentley manual, the following general procedure is suggested in order to close the top in an emergency situation.
Main motor. To release the top linkage from the motor, lift the left corner of the rear seat to access emergency release handle.
It is then possible to push the top manually to a near closed position. In case of the semi-automatic top, simply attach and lock the front latches.
Front latches. Once the fully automatic convertible top has been released from the motor and manually pushed to near-closure, emergency latching of the top is possible by using the S-shaped hex key provided in the emergency tool kit(attached to the trunk lid underside).
First, remove the the plastic cover over the latch motor in the front bow of the convertible top.
Next, use the hex key from the tool box to crank the front latches shut.

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.

Convertible top latch broken


Just the latch.

Remove it, take it to an auto salvage yard and get another.

I believe that the same latch was used from 80-94 or thereabouts.
