dash to control it, or a broken wire between the dash switch and

Have I ruined my 1997 Jaguar XK8 Driving 15mph or so I thought and tried to close the convertible top. Now the roof button will not work and the top is one inch from closing. Allen tool won't work.?
To close the top: Open both door windows. Open the trunk and pull the passenger side trunk liner towards the center of the trunk. You may have to work the liner away from the lip holding it in place. Once this is done, you will see the convertible top hydraulic pump. On the side of the pump is a petcock. Turn it completely counter-clockwise. This opens the valve on the pump. Now use the Allen tool to raise the hook. Pull the convertible top down to meet the hook. Close the top by using the Allen tool. Return to the trunk and close the petcock. Replace the trunk liner. Press the convertible switch to close the top - this will raise the rear windows. Close the door windows. Have the vehicle checked at a dealership.

How do you close vw beetle convertible manually?
Open the trunk, look for a round black rubber stopper toward the left brake light. Pry it open, inside there is a metallic lever, twist it anti clockwise to release the top. Manually lift the top to close it. Then turn the metallic lever backwards to its original position, put back the rubber stopper, get inside the car and lock your top.
