Convertible top Compartment Lid is Stuck Closed


Here is the situation: When I went to close my convertible top, it wouldn't do so. I get out of the car and find that one side of the metal convertible deck lid wouldn't open. I find that there is a very small little latch that the hydraulic system unlocks before the deck lid slides back out of the way so the top can close: (This is the picture of the properly connected latch.) It is a little hard to see the latch with the top folded down in the way. To get to it, you have to

It appears that Porsche only sells the rod assembly- the good news is that it is only $14.09 MSRP.

This happend to mine, snapped the drive mechanism. Replaced that, now OPC telling me the potentiometer is faulty (on the drive motor). I susperct it needs setting to 6.2kohms and the roof calibrating, seemed like a step to far for the OPC. Managed to survive with an hours bill (£125) so don't know what to do now, I will try and get a motor with potentiometer attached from a breaker and replace, but don't really want to donate another £125 for them to look baffled again and not fix. Thought they were the experts, why do they expect to get paid if they don't fix it !!!!!

Regards
