I typed this in before this screen came up asking for it again but I will type it in again. I was retracting the top from the closed position and it starated to open until it reache about the 1/2 way point when the motor started making noisese eventhough the top stopped moving. At that point I was able to move the top manually into the fully open position, which allowed me to electrically close the metal part that opens and covers part of the top when it is fully open(sorry, I do not know the na

2005 New Beetle conv. Power top quits usually half way open, somtimes goes all the way and quits while closing it. When this happens I open the valve in the trunk so I can operate it manually. I thinks maybe there's a relay or breaker kicking off somewhere. If I try it later on or the next day it does the same thing. Could the switch be faulty? Is the switch some kind of relay that might be kicking off and coming back on after cooling down? Very aggravating to say the least. Any help you can g

I need to remove the right rear panel of my new beetle convertible to find out the problem. There is a little door at the top and when the top goes up this door is supposed to go under and forward so the frame of the top doesn't hit. It is not doing this but I can slide it forward with my fingers. This is not the top door that opens and closes up and down. Also, where can I buy a good manual for this auto. how much does this service cost

2004 Maserati spyder top malfunction. The lid opens and closes but the top won't go up. Can't pull the top out manually either. I read about releasing hydraulic pressure but not sure where. I saw a white cone behind the passenger seat with a flat head screw. Not sure if that's it and weather I should back it out all the way or not. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Bob
