Hello, I recently held down the button to retract the convertible top without it being completely unlatched. I immediately heard a loud popping sound and the back panel that opens up was appeared to have the rubber seals sticking out. I am now able to open and lower the back panel (still hear loud pops when I do this), but the convertible top now will not do anything while holding down the button. Any ideas what the next step is here? Thank you.

Most likely you broke the cable ends or the drive that lowers the top.  You are going to need to manually get the rear panel open and access what is broken.

 

Good luck.

Here is my right and left convertible push rods. I see that both end pieces have snapped and have ordered new ones. However, it also appears that the right push rod is bent. Can anyone confirm this?
