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.

      Hi all, Thanks for the add. I've just purchased my 1st 370Z and absolutely love it. Quality car, quality performance. Looking forward to seeing everyone's Z cars.

      Start off small, go catback exhaust like invidia which is quite popular around here. I personally have a motordyne catback, and for the system itself, it is usually plenty deep and loud! If you do find yourself at one of the next car meets, swing by and have a listen to what exhaust tone you like. Moving forward with headers and test pipes like the US Z community do, they do tend to go over the db limit here in AUS, as well as become deafening whilst driving. It’s not like people dont so it, but it’s not tolerable for most. I would also encourage you to fit the catback yourself, it really isnt that hard and you save some cash installing it yourself! It’s only a couple of 12-14mm nuts and bolts and youre golden. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

      HI damo-heato, I know it's been a very, very long time since this post was made but i came across it and was wondering if you still had all the parts for sale and if so how much would you want for them (I know the answer is probably no since it's been so long but might as well try). Cheers!

      Has anyone actually verified that a simple disk copy will work? Has anyone actually done it and made it work properly?
