First I recommend we check the hydraulic fluid in the top pump reservoir. The fluid should be in the middle of the two lines. If it is low we need to fill it with a pentosin hydraulic fluid. If it is then we should check the top fuses in the trunk fuse box. Let me know.

I don't hear any clicking sounds where the top unlocks from windshield frame. Is this normal?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
