Q: Convertible top stuck

asked by on

The convertible top is half up. It won't close all the way. The top part is down, but the trunk part is not closing completely.

The hydraulic system that moves the top may have a leak or has taken in air and needs to be bled. When this happens, the pump continues to make noise, but the top stops moving. Have an automotive technician inspect the vehicle and verify the concern.
