Will doI've heard that it *may* need recalibrating.
There was a youtube video a while back of him replacing his and he said he didn't need it.
Basically I think it only needs it if there's a problem...
Let us know when you're done, eh? ;p
Definitely is, slowly but surely. And damn that's insane lol.Coming along looks like!! I still can't believe your luck with that top. I parted out a convertible a few years ago, with a working but ratty top, and had people beating down my door to give me $200 for it lol.
It's not going up or down. The top isn't doing anything still, even with everything still connected. The button for the top flashes, but it doesn't beep anymore while driving. I think one of the micro switches in the rear deck lid may have been damaged when closing the top. Gonna check it out later today. Yes, the 2 C prongs. They were too far back, so I advanced them with the Allen key manually.So it works up/down?
By 'metal bar' do you mean the 2 C-prongs that forward into the window frame once the spikes are down into the window frame?
Also: the car lowers the windows slightly at first when lowering or raising the top. As far as I know, it will lower the windows slightly every time you touch that button.
Whether it's up or down, or in the middle of the way up/down, or whether the windows are already slightly down.
Then it raises them back up when done.
To be honest I don’t think it’s worth it. The market for LPT and HPT C70’s seems plentiful, at least down here in Miami and Florida in general. They pop up really frequently, and you can score a lower mileage clean example for anywhere between 1.7-3.5/4k, and if you really want to you can find some 60-70k mile examples from 04 for about 5/6k. Once the top on these go, unless it’s one that used to work and you’ve already owned, I’d stay clear.Just started up a c70 that sat for 6 years after R2 fuel pump and draining gas. runs good. Top dead. back window fell in rats chewed some wires fuel gauge not working. Stripped cables trying to manually open it. Can it be saved or should I sell as is? cannot find much info on fixing tops. Tear latches stuck close still no open top. Regards Dan.. [email protected] in Gulf Breeze Fl.
So after the swap, the top still didn’t work 100%. And shortly thereafter, about 2k miles later the head gasket blew lol. I would very highly recommend having a second set of hands help you drop in a new assembly because it’s very heavy.How did the top swap go? Can you elaborate on the procedure for removing/replacing the whole assembly and if you needed to do any re-calibration due to the swap?
