Stuck or Jammed Hood

Can’t open or remove your hardtop or soft top hood


• Not following hood release instructions
• Faulty latch, cable of mechanism

The Cure

Soft Top: Window Winder Release Handle should be turned anti clockwise. Then the short chrome lever should be advanced round in a clockwise position, this should then release your Soft top.
Soft Top and Hardtop: In some cases it is possible to release the tops by inserting a large screwdriver under the soft top deck and releasing the catch, but access can be very tight.
