2006 Porsche 997 - Convertible Top Failure

Asked by Feb 12, 2017 at 11:07 AM about the 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 AWD Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My convertible top has failed and a visual inspection showed that the hydraulic fluid was a little low but above the minimum.  On the button press, it sounds like the pump is running however there is no movement of any of the parts involved in raising/lowering the top.  Before proceeding to purchase a very expensive hydraulic pump I wanted to post this for opinions on diagnosing the problem more completely,.

Have you scanned the car for error codes? You may also have a micro switch failure

I would inspect all components of the convertible top system. It may be jammed or have a leaking hydraulic hose.

It cannot hurt to top of the hydraulic fluid but I suspect a bad pump or ram.
