Chrysler 2005 PT Cruiser Convertible Automobile User Manual

To Raise The Top:
To avoid damage to the convertible top or its com-
ponents, your vehicle is equipped with a feature that
prevents convertible top operation at speeds over 10
mph (16 km/h).
To fully insure that no damage occurs, be sure that
the vehicle is at a complete stop with the gear
selector in the Park position (automatic transaxle) or
in the Neutral position (manual transaxle) before
lowering or raising the top.
1. Remove the convertible top boot cover, if equipped.
Refer to Convertible Top Boot Cover Removal and Stor-
age, in this section.
2. Turn the ignition to the ON position.
3. Press the Power Top Switch to raise the top. Before the
top reaches the windshield, open the latch handle and
turn the handle clockwise to open the latches. Press the
switch again to continue raising the top until the two pins
seat themselves in the windshield header.
NOTE: If the top is not latched right away, it may be
necessary to press the power top switch, UP or
DOWN quickly, to align the pins to the windshield
4. Pull down on the latch handle and rotate it counter-
clockwise to engage the latches.
