The top motor is shot. I had this problem with my 1991 Chevy Cavalier and all I did was unhook the hydraulics from the top itself after removing the hoses from the motor itself. Press the rode from the hyfraulics down as far as they go, but make sure you have a bucket to put the hoses in because fluid will poor out. I only did this because a motor is expensive and I don't see the problem with pushing the top down and pulling it up. It makes it a lot faster.

If when you press on the switch and it click your problem is the top cylinder and if iit is too expensive to fix just disconect the cylinder their is two coter pin on each

How do you change a starter in a 1985 Pontiac sunbird?

Changing a starter in a 1985 Pontiac Sunbird is not very difficult. The car will first need to be jacked up. After the car is jacked up, locate the starter. The wires will need to be taken off the starter and labeled so they can be reattached to the new starter. The starter is then taken down by using a ratchet to take of the bolts. After the starter is taken off, the new one can be put on.
