Top anatomy, physiology, and fix


Recommended Posts

Thanks to this board for providing the basics on the pushrod fix for my '99 Boxster top. Worked beautifully, fixed in 1 h for the cost of a small part. Where did all the "top fix" posts go?

Got a new problem that I'd love to post, complete with pics, but I'm wondering before I do if someone could direct me to a manual that will describe top (and all the rest of the car?!?) anatomy/physiology so I can speak intelligently about the issue, using a common vocabulary.

Thanks so much to all who continue to educate.

The Porsche Factory Technical Manual, in its volume called "Group 6, Body Equipment, Exterior" has some detailed diagrams, but the language is somewhat arcane and overall not too clear in its instructions.

The Bentley Manual, although not as detailed, is an excellent place to start in understanding the various components of the convertible top (see, for example, p. 354). It has some good terminology in referring to the various components of the top.

This forum has some posts that discuss/use various terms for the parts, and although there are some terms that are possible to interpret as referring to two different parts (example: pushrods [referring to the black hydraulic cylinders that operate on the clamshell] [["convertible top compartment lid" in Bentley]] and pushrods (referring to the two-part black joint arms that operate on the canvas part of the top), you can generally be understood. You get the idea...

Regards, Maurice.
