How hard is kind of a relative term.
It kind of depends on your level of expertise.

Changing a convertible top is not a simple nut and bolt job.
I worked in a trim shop for 19 years, and I can do them, and even so, they put up a fight from start to finish.

I suggest if you have never done a convertible top before, or you do not have access to someone that has done convertible tops before not to try it on your own.
The tops are fairly expensive, and you can damage them very easily during installation.

A job like this is best left to a trim shop (Automotive Upholstery).
Because of all the steps involved, it is not considered a novice job.

Not something you want to attempt on your own. I have 35 years working on these cars and I send the tops out.

How do you replace the rear 02 sensor on a 2004 trailblazer? I can't find any diagrams on the web. Maybe I haven't looked hard enough yet.


Follow the exhaust pipe to beyond the catalytic converter. The "rear" or down stream O2 sensor is usually on top of pipe behind the converter. Follow the wire from it to its disconnect plug andf unplug it. Use the correct size open end wrench to remove the sensor. Reverse to istall replacement. You really don't need a diagram - just your mark 1 eyeballs.

Replacing the back window in a 2002 convertible


The rear window in your car is a separate part from the top so it can be replaced without replacing the top.
You must, however remove most of the top.
Windows are available on Ebay and instructions are available on DVD here.

I have a 2005 PT Cruiser. The convertible top was down. When I went to put it back up, I had no power. The fuse was fine. I bled the pressure off the cylinders and manually put the top up. The wondows on...


HYDRAULIC PUMP/MOTOR ASSEMBLY Any diagnosis of the power top system should begin with the use of a scan tool and the proper Diagnostic Procedures Information. The scan tool can provide confirmation that the Controller Area Network (CAN) data bus is functional, that all of the electronic modules are sending and receiving the proper messages on the CAN data bus, and that the power top motor is being sent the proper hard wired output by the driver window regulator module.


NOTE: The convertible top system is equipped with a hydraulic bypass screw that is used to relieve pressure from the hydraulic system in the event that the top must be manually raised or lowered (such as a low battery or a convertible top operating concern). Always verify that the bypass screw is tight in the pump housing prior to replacing a hydraulic pump/motor assembly (Refer to 23 - Body/Convertible Top - Standard Procedure). If the power top is completely inoperative and the hydraulic pump/motor assembly is suspect, perform the following:

(Refer to 23 - Body/Seats/SEAT BACK - Removal).(Refer to 23 - Body/Convertible Top/ASSEMBLY, Hydraulic - Removal). If not OK, use a scan tool and the proper Diagnostic Procedures Information to complete diagnosis of the power top system.

On convertible vehicles, the convertible top switch is hard wired to both window regulator modules by the Power Top Switch Mux circuit. When a top operation input is received by the driver window module, it will ground the respective relay control circuit which in turn will operate the motor. If the convertible top switch is pressed and held to the down position second detent, it will command both modules to drop all windows to the fully down position. The windows cannot be raised when the convertible top switch is in the top down position. When the switch is held in the top up position and all four windows are fully up, the modules will lower the respective front window 40 mm (1.6 in), lower the respective rear window approximately 55 mm (2 in) and the driver window module will ground the top up relay control circuit. Once the top is back up the windows will not raise automatically.

Your missing that you don't have a clue on how the electronic's on your vehicle work . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop . Your trying to fix something you have no clue on how it works , going at it blind .
