Convertible roof won't go down?

3 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi, my 2004 350z, only had for a few months. The roof won't go down. Windows go down, passenger seat goes forward but back doesn't go up nor does the roof move.  Any help would be great? Am I up for a motza to repair?

Also, am I supposed to be lubing anything on the roof?

Any and all comments are greatly appreciated.

1.  I haven't looked , but i believe there may be manual override ,  check your service book.

2.  Try leaving the car in the sun to help soften the top.   The vinyl may be too stiff to fold.

 

3. Look up my350z.com ,  register ,  it's a big forum,  do a search in the  "350z tech" thread for "5th bow motor" .  Have a read.

Good luck ,  post up if you find a fix.

Silly reply to start off but make sure you have your foot on the brake. It wont go back unless your are stationary and foot is on the brake.

I have the same model and I have found it does not like the cold as previous reply mentioned - must be the rigidity of the fabric. If its a cold morning, it will get about 75% of the way and get stuck. If its warm - goes back no problem.

      I'm in Sydney unfortunately, was about to suggest that though as we're planning a meet this Sunday.

      I'll see what I can do, but like I said, bit hard to find somewhere where you can do it without drawing attention etc

      Anybody have experience with the error code P0011? car is currently with the mechanic...unable to find an actual issue everything is checking out and few things been checked/ replaced but car is still not running right. Initial easier fixes through troubleshooting or stripping it down to access the gasket behind (unsure if it was the galley gasket) are yet to get it going, timing, valves, actuators etc. seem fine as checked once pulled apart a bit... mechanic said he had one or two more things to try then may have to get it to Nissan dealer. Could it be a simpler fix they have overlooked like oil pressure/ filter? but assuming they had already gone their through process of elimination..

      Hi guys. I bought a 370 roadster recently and when i was checking it out i noticed a little tear starting. i didnt think much of it because my 350 soft top replacement was pretty straight forward, there was plenty of DIY literature and the tops were all over ebay. Now i own the thing, i went looking to buy a replacement top and....err....no literature and next to nothing available. crap. Help? Suggestions? Cheers!
