When opening and closing the convertible top, make
There is sufficient clearance of at least 6 ft. (1.8m)
for the convertible top to move up.
Nothing is placed on the tonneau cover.
The outside temperature is above 32°F (0°C).
Otherwise the convertible top and other parts of the
vehicle could be damaged.
Use caution when putting items into the storage
compartment with the top in the closed position. The
tonneau cover extensions are exposed and can be
damaged if luggage or other items are pushed too far
into the storage compartment.
To Lower The Top:
Top operation can be suspended for a maximum of
10 minutes. Thirty seconds before the end of this
period an audible warning will begin to sound
continuously. At the end of this period, hydraulic
pressure will be released and the top and tonneau
cover will slowly collapse. In order to re-initialize
the top cycle, the tonneau cover must first be moved
and held in its full open position manually. The
convertible top should then be carefully lowered
into its storage compartment, and the tonneau
closed. Hands should be kept away from moving
parts of the top and top compartment mechanisms to
avoid injury during this operation and as hydraulic
pressure is reestablished. The hydraulic pressure can
be reestablished by turning the ignition to the ON/
RUN position and pushing down on the convertible
top switch twice. Refer to Convertible Top Emer-
gency Operation in the What To Do In Emergencies
section of this manual.
