I have a 2006 convertible Solstice and the top has started to bumble. It looks silly and I would love to get it fixed. Any ideas on how to diy?
With the top in the trunk, stand next to the forward edge of the trunk. Inside on the back (forward) wall of the trunk, you will find a round rubber stopper that forms the head of a bolt with a lock nut on it. There is one on each side. Loosen the lock nut and screw the stop in, toward the front of the car, and you will reduce the tension on the top. Do both sides. This will allow the front edge of the top to travel forward more and should solve your issue.Attaching myself.
I'm having the same or similar issue.
My convertible top is coming up about 1/2" short. This is causing the pins to not fully seat and the latch to not fully engage.
I've seen forum posts on how to make adjustments, but they're usually so old that the photos that accompanied them are no longer available.
Can anyone please advise?
Not sure I can help you since I am unsure of the exact problem you are
The top is not attached to the 2 frame pieces, therefore when driving the top bubbles up or domes up. Love my Pontiac just looks silly driving down the road.Not sure I can help you since I am unsure of the exact problem you are having.
I would not recommend to drive the car with the top up in that condition if at all possible until it is fixed.The top is not attached to the 2 frame pieces, therefore when driving the top bubbles up or domes up. Love my Pontiac just looks silly driving down the road.
Did you notice (second photo) that your bracket and attachment plastic clip are just loose down there below the flap hinge?
I guess I don't fully understand the Tulip Flap system. I'll record a video of it later, upload to youtube, then post here.What about the tulip panel flap doors? It is likely that they are the key to this issue.
Great idea. Make that video and post it up here, and folks will chime in with information.I guess I don't fully understand the Tulip Flap system. I'll record a video of it later, upload to youtube, then post here.
I see your questions you posted earlier, hopefully the video will resolve the questions.
Thanks again for your help.
