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 put the top down on a 1998 Chevrolet Convertible
I assume it is the same as my 1995 Ford Explorer . The button should be DOWN , if the button has popped up then the switch has " tripped " and no power is flowing to the electric fuel pump
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.
copy down the vin number of the car.take it to your ford dealer and buy a trunk key for your car it will fit the lock that opens the lid covering the folded top.
It's a cloth cover for the convertible top when it is stowed in the down position.
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
put it down

The ford service manual for the ford capri is available for down load at www.techcapri .com and contains detailed instructions on this. I have just finished Changing front hubs and found removing the axel nuts nearly impossible, but in theory the job is fairly straight forward but a puller was needed to remove the hub. Dismantling the hub to change wheel bearings or brake rotors requires special pullers and presses- might be best left to experts unless you have a very well equipped workshop
To take your top down open both doors then push forward on the red bottons on the top release handles located at the top of hte roof by the visors and pull down on the levers. Releve the tension on the back of the roof and gentle pull this back from the car. Raise these up and then open the compartment for the roof. There is a release by the drivers door. You may need the ignition key to unlock it. Lift the compartment lid. Lower the bottom of the roof into the compartment do not drop the top in. Lower it in carefully and watch to see if it folds properly you may need to push the top bar back into position to get it to go in flush to the top. Close your top and enjoy.
Didn't make a convertible in 1984. It has Targa roof panel that can be removed with a tool.
Could it be that the top is not locked down securely.
How do you put the top down on a Mercedes slk230? there should be a button on the middle console that operate the convertible, that's how i let my convertible down on my 1999 slk kompressor
Because there is vacuum in the top, and the capillary is to thin for free flow of mercury.
