For some time now, my top pull-down motor has been recycling. It hasn't been an issue, however, since I rarely have the top up anyway. But I decided I'd have a look at it earlier to try to fix it up.
Figuring maybe the lever behind the latch needed to be adjusted, I followed the instructions from Allantesource. The problem appears to not be the lever's adjustment, as it appears to be nearly touching (it might even be barely touching theback of the latch) when pressed. I did not attempt to adjust the J-hook.
Now, here's the interesting part. The motor does not recycle when the boot cover is not in place. If I leave the boot cover up, and then put the top down, the motor pulls and clicks into place. With the boot cover in its proper position, however, I can hear the motor continue to click as it recycles. Could the boot cover be to blame for my woes?
Sorry to ramble; I just wanted to explain the situation as best as I possibly could. Thanks in advance for any advice.
