Customer Question

Hello, when I open the top on my 2004 VW it opens all the way but the little flaps never close. If I then turn off the car and turn it back on it will close all the way and the flaps will go down. I only have a problem with the flaps when opening the top.

Hello sorry for the delay i can help you out , we have seen this issue usually you have a failed micro switch for the top the only issue is that the top has many micro switches that work of each other for the top to work properly , what you will need to do is have the trouble codes checked in the top convertible module this will tell you which switch has failed . I hope this helps.
