I have a 2004 vw beetle convertible. When I bought the car a few months ago the power top was in working condition, and now its not lol. I know that it can be expensive to look into fixing these issues as I am not super mechanically inclined. I've read a couple posts where members are manually opening and closing their power tops, and I want to know what to do, how to do it and if there are any repercussions to doing this. I've been driving this thing most of the summer with the top up and seeing all these other convertibles with their tops down and its making me jealous lol and I honestly don't care if I have to manually open and close the top, as long as I can do the top down i'll be satisfied. Thanks for any help!
