Actually, the top is now toast. The v-bracket snapped in two. I thought the side of the car was going to blow apart Apparently, instead of opening while pressing the open switch, the closed tighter, hence the explosion. I can buy another for about $40, but I am convinced that an electric top in a car this small makes no sense, given the aggravation and expense. Working the top manually is faster than the electric process anyway, except, of course, for securing the clam shell.

Have you ever heard of anyone who has converted the top to manual (intentionally) and found a way to secure the clam shell tightly? Then I can just cover the idiot light and move on. This car is perfect otherwise, the it is no longer worth it to me if can figure out the clam shell problem.
