How do you adjust the convertible top on a 1995 Chrysler LeBaron?

This should work on most any LeBaron from 87 - 95 (or 96. Can't remember when production stopped.)

There are several adjustment points on the convertible top. The first of these is more easily done when the top is halfway down. Near the front of the top on the side, there are two bolts. They should be around three to six inches from the end of the top and if the top were closed, they would be above the driver and passenger front windows. Loosen the bolts and it should let you slide the end of the convertible top in and out. This is good for a range of about two inches or so.

The second adjustment is for the pivot point above the drivers and passengers front windows. If it's adjusted wrong, this pivot will sag and your windows won't be able to go up all the way. The top should be straight above the windows. If it's not, do this adjustment. This will take two people, preferably one with good endurance and strength. Put the top all the way up and latch it. Have someone sit in the back seat and pull aside the interior cloth on the top, right behind the back window. You will want to be accessing the area right behind the rear speaker. There is a long, round arm that comes down and attaches to a sliding plate. The plate is about 2 - 3inches long by an inch and 1/2 wide. Loosen the two bolts until the gripping teeth on the flat side of the little plate release. The pivot point above the window should now be sagging considerably. Have a second person stand outside of the car and push up on the pivot point above the window until it's straight. This will take a bit of strength and endurance, because you have to hold it for a while while the bolts are being tightened back down. When the angle above the window is straight, tighten the bolts down in the back on the arm and it should be set.

Lastly, you can adjust the little hooks that latch the top down. I'm not sure on the size, but there is a little Allen wrench hole on the front of the hook (towards the windshield). Loosen it and it will allow you to turn the hook in and out. This gives you a little bit of adjustment if your hooks just aren't reaching far enough, or if they're too loose and your top doesn't snug down tight. Be careful not to extend the hooks too far because if they're only holding on with a few threads, the threads might give way and then you have to find and purchase a new hook.

Good luck.

You can not disable it. You can disarm it by unlocking the drivers door with the key.

You can open a hood on a 1995 Chrysler LeBaron convertible gtc from the outside if your lever is broken. All you have to do is get a pair of vise grips and pull the cable which will release the hood.

The Chrysler LeBaron was discontinued in 1995.
