Customer Question
Hi Pearl, my 2003...

Hi Pearl, my 2003 A4 cabriolet has developed a problem with the soft top - I cannot open it using the power button...I have manually done open-close cycle but the 'reset' has not worked...when I use the power button there is an icon showing on the display screen but no sound of hydraulics...nothing

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Audi. The Audi Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

I( want to try myself if not too complicated...yes.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Audi Mechanic should know about your Audi?

Well, the soft top was just fine when before I travelled 2000km across country...then the hood partially opened...then nothing at all...no, nothing else important comes to mind.

Mechanic's Assistant: OK. Got it. Last thing - JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Audi Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
