Convertible top lube question?

Hello all,

For those that dont live in NJ, we usually dont get too much top-down weather this late in the year. Today however, 60 ish and sunny! Which brings me to my question. What kind of maintenance on the top mechanism is required. Do you guys lube the top components and in what way? My top functions very well most of the time. I have noticed that sometimes it studders a little going up and down. Is this normal or should I service it in some way.

Thanks in advance!

Joe, there's a track on both sides that can tolerate some lubrication with some white lithium grease now and then, providing you don't use so much that it gets on your top. That's about all I can think of lubricating.
