After you unhook the front latches, push back to unhook top from the back ledge. Roll the rear window under first, push the top back slowly and then push the 1st(front) roller bar backwards as the top is falling into the backend. If you don't, the top won't fit flush. It took me FOREVER to figure this out! DONT FORGET TO USE YOUR KEY AND POP THE LEVER ON THE DRIVERS SIDE!!!!! DID YOU FORGET THAT ONE NUMB NUTS AND YOU HALF A$$ ANSWER

How do you take 1992 mercury Capri convertible top down?

I had the same problem with my 91 - It seemed to get stuck on something and not go all the way down. This is what I learned and it worked. The #1 top bow (directly over your head when seated in the front seat of the car) has elastic built in the top pads to help it nest properly. In older Capris the top pads elastic straps have lost tension and doesn't pull the #1 bow back toward the rear of the car. If your convertible frame will not fold down completely, lift it about 6 to 8 inches and locate the #1 top bow. Swing it toward the rear of the car. This will release the binding and allow the convertible top frame and fabri to collapse into the rear storage well. Hope this helps.

Unlatch the latches at the top of the window, then press the convertible top button down. this button is located near the armrest. If this does not work you must aquire a new convertible top motor. from the trunk, remove hyd. fluid from the conv. top pump, operate top by hand. worked for me for years
