The lower microswitches of the left and right rear side section flaps are actuated when the convertible top is closed. I then cycled the top, and the cavitation went away, and the reservoir level dropped slightly, as I suppose some air was flushed from the hydraulics. I can hear a relay clicking in the back but there is no other movement or sound. Do the limit switchs have to be reset for the flaps and lid. I tried the hex on the reservoir but can only fill the tank halfway. Then i can offer more advice. I will certainly check the fluid, but before investing the time to wait for the damn flaps to go down, I thought I would get your thoughts.
Here you can see parts of the convertible frame blue arrows. I might of disconnected a micros witch or something without realizing. If you have determined that the fluid level is low, remove the hex plug and use a small syringe along with some plastic tubing to fill up the reservoir. Battery failed last night on my Porchea 911 Cab while top was down; got jump start and made it home. I would link to it but am unable to do so. If you need to replace the entire latch mechanism, remove the four Torx bolts holding it to the convertible top and then remove the electrical connectors going to it. Regards, John November 25, 2018 Followup from the Pelican Staff: The switches are common issues, you will have to remove, then splice in the new ones.
The top used to be fine, going up and down, but then one of the rear windows stopped going up and down. I am able to live with the problem as I raise the roof about halfway, I get out of the car and manually move the frame to clear the rollbar panel, and then continue the closing process. In the event of a hydraulic system failure, the convertible top cannot be operated manually. June 2, 2015 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Could be a faulty microswitch in the roof frame or that the latch is not pushing in far enough. February 17, 2017 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Are your side flaps in figure 12 both closing completely? Also, to answer the question about the pump motor location. Once the panel is removed, you'll see the two access points for opening and closing the top as well as the tool stored on the bulkhead. I believe the flap should be getting constant power till it runs it cycle, and is shut off by one of the micro switches, correct? Passenger side is getting full power till it runs its course.
The car also beeps after locking indicating something isn't closed properly i. We do not yet have the glass rear window tops. March 26, 2018 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Your reservoir may be full. Any ideas why the small windows failed to close? Use a Porsche scan tool to check top position when lowering. There is one on each side. The cabriolet stopped working when it was fully opened. What did I do to fix it? June 21, 2016 Followup from the Pelican Staff: The pump may have failed from aerated fluid.
Figure 11 Once the rear body flap has been removed, you'll have access to manually lower or raise the top. Without warning, a loud pop was heard near the end of the process as I was putting the top back up. Always replace cylinders in pairs. Is there a final microswitch that tells the car when the top is fully down? Chances are it just needs a little help. Odd thing is that it doesn't catch every time. With these hot conditions the thermoplastic hose materials fail and as a result, the hoses blow out under operational pressure.
Our replacement cylinder seals and hoses are made from superior materials that have a high resistance to decomposition when exposed to hydraulic fluid, moisture, pressure, and high temperatures. January 6, 2016 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Do the windows drop when you hit the switch? With your vehicle info handy, give The Pelican Parts parts specialists a call at 1-888-280-7799. I've pulled the control module to view the condition of the solder points. Any help or do I need to replace something? Just be sure if it in same position as before, don;t loosen nay top adjusting fasteners. Thanks for the follow up. However, the light still remains on when the roof is up or down.
Checked with brake and good fuse. I have searched everywhere with a magnet and have had no luck. The top is as original with the green plastic window. Remove the drive arm off the pins. You can hear some clicking. Zipper panel is located around rear window, matching dimensions of old plastic window. A microswitch may be faulty.
I checked the fluid level and discovered that I have the horizontal fluid reservoire. Should I hear the motor. Any advice on how i can get it to release? I filled the resevoir via plug at end then operated the hood several times by hand pausing to bleed the pipes inbetween. The pump began cavitating when the fluid was below the min mark. To add fluid, remove the fill port plug green arrow. Could the problem be the hydraulic cylinders or what? The cables that do the lifting of the clamshell are all free and easy and the electrical gearbox unit fits in and matches correctly. They can figure out what part or repair kit you need.
