DIY: Fix the Convertible Top (Won't open/close)

Yesterday the convertible top on my 1998 Porsche Boxster 986 would not open when I pressed the button. I did a lot of research online from various places and found that there are several areas that might fail and learned how to troubleshoot them. I tried to assemble a step-by-step troubleshooting guide in this video to help solve most of the common issues with the top failing to close or open. It is long, but it's very comprehensive.
