Re: 04 c70 convertible top help....please!

What's up guys, got my top fixed BY MYSELF! I wanted to give an update and a closure to the thread. I replaced the back 2 motors/gears with a panel I got off eBay. Talked the guy down to $180 for both motors, the panel, and the 2 cables that come off the motor. I installed the panel, took about an h...

Re: 04 c70 convertible top help....please!

My adhesive to the bolt to remove trick did not work.

Ordered a newish motor, but I don't think that motor is the culprit for the original failure.

Any info to give?

I was using the drill in the back of the car under the lid. I did try to reverse the screw from the motor to no avail! When I do press the switch for the top it does make a sound still, so there may still be hope. The top got stuck with the rear window vertical. The rear tonneau is at a slight angle...

Re: Need help before I attack the valve body!

Re: Need help before I attack the valve body!

I replaced the solenoids today. I had a step by step I printed off of someone's DIY thread somewhere. There were a few steps that didn't work for my car, and I had to remove both front subframe bolts, and pry the hell out of it to get the valve body cover removed. Got to dark to finish putting every...

Re: Need help before I attack the valve body!

Leave the car overnight and then remove coolant cap slowly and let air in. Most of the air trapped should now be removed. This is what I have always done in the past with older 850's, didn't seem to work last time with this one. Its all about patience really, and sometimes with such a simple task it...

Re: Need help before I attack the valve body!

That is what I have read, and didn't want to try cutting open the solenoids and saving a few dollars.

The only thing that will drive me crazy, is trying to refill and "burp" the coolant system. The way the thermostats are placed on these always gives me a hard time getting all the air out.

Welp, couldn’t wait!

I ordered the new B4 servo cover, currently the existing one is labeled 1ck or 1dk hard to tell.
I also ordered the Rostra solenoids, and the IPD transmission cooler O ring set. All the parts should be in by Monday.

Re: cooling system help needed. Stuck at work.

I understand that 100% but....the temp gauge didn't fluctuate at all. But I get that at that point something was amiss.

I actually ordered a new cap, and bottle from Autohause Az, excellent prices over there.
