AnswerYou shouldn"t have to manually close the top on your 97. the top is all electric, so it should close and open at the push of a button. the 95 and below actually had to when opening, push up the top to a certain height before the convertable top would catch and then automatically open. And when closing, stops at a certain point. then you have to pull down and lock the top yourself, even though it was electric as well.

Actually - the motor comes apart on the convertible top located in the truck - find the motor and you'll see it has disengaged from the gears - simply push it back up into place with your hands it it will work again.

On my 96 there are 2 motor/gear mechanisms needing reset after manual release lever is pulled. One for the decklid operation is mounted on the immediate left behind the felt trunkliner, the other, being the top reclining unit, is located again in trunk on left, but a top left directly under the tray that the top stows into.

How can you get the soft convertible top of a 1998 VW Cabrio convertible back up when it is stuck in the down position and the button doesn't seem to work?

I've had luck with having someone press and hold the top up button while manually pulling the top up. We found the top on my friends car could also be lowered this way - by holding the top down button and manually lowering the top. If you open the trunk and look on the left side, you will see the cover. This contains the motor for the top. There should be a round plastic cover, if you pull this off you will see the motor. There will be a handle, which you want to turn left to release the pressure in the motor, this will let you manually lift and close the top or open. If the motor is okay and you can use it, then you must turn this handle to the right, in order for the pump to pressurize.
