Man! my 350z convertible top releases and goes all the way

Customer Question

Hey man! my 350z convertible top releases and goes all the way down, and the tenneau cover goes most of the way down, but slows to a stop at about 5 inches to full close, then stops. Any idea what it could be? and it does go back to close

Hey there, alot of times this is the result of the elastic straps on the top itself. It prevents the top itself from FULLY retracting into the storage area so the lid stops before fully latching. Using some light pressure will temporarily allow you to secure it.

Dealership will charge around $250 for the repair.

Let me know if you need further assistance or have further questions please.
