A factory level scan tool; like vcds by ross tech or the cheaper obdeleven, would help you diagnose the problem intelligently, allowing you to read trouble codes from the control module for the top , then see live data to observe any malfunctions from the position sensors, etc.

The most common problem; is the position sensor, in the passenger side header location.

To understand how the top is setup, its basic operation and where the sensor locations are, check out the vw self study program:
