    He also didnt tell me the front windshield was broken. As far as doing anything about it I did call E bay and they said they only would cover an item if it was less than 10 years old. All they are working on is trying to get the title for me.

    Re: Got screwed over on E Bay so HELP !!!

    Been trying to put ragtop down but when I unhook it up front and raise boot it goes about half way and stops. Is there a button or lever or some devise I must move to let it go the remainder. By the way I tried to set parking brake and check button to see if that is the cause of the lite and surprise, the brake is not even connected.

    Re: Got screwed over on E Bay so HELP !!!

    heres a video about top operation. Johnny Monzo is comparable to Dick Hussey in the Allanté "scene". They both know tons about allantes and sell allante parts.



    the big difference between this video and your car it the front latches. Mid year 1990 (known as 90.5) the latches on the front changed to motorized latches.

    you may also notice a slight difference in boot cover appearance and switch locations

    Red face Re: Got screwed over on E Bay so HELP !!!

    Gotta tell you that the short film about the top cleared up so much for me. I want to thank u again for ur help. Now if there were clips on seats and doors and a few other things it would be great.
    I got a price of $280.00 for a new windshield. Does that sound about right ???

    I will have a key tomorrow so I can open the trunk. I would like to know about fuses. I found the ones under ashtray but there are no labels.

    Maxi fuses are in the trunk near the antenna and a few more near the battery. I heard so much about the top and it stumped me also till I finally got it. Now it is so simple and easy to operate it is not the nightmare that you hear on boards...at least for a 90 model.

    Smile Re: Got screwed over on E Bay so HELP !!!

    I do have a couple more questions.

    1. The drivers window works slow but at least it works. The pass. window makes a clicking sound and does not move.

    2. The seats work in one or two positions but not all. Are there several motors on each seat.

    Getting a key made for the trunk today. I guess $40.00 is worth because I need help trying to get out when I try to get in from the front.

    3. There is a button below the (2) rocker switches behind drivers seat. Looks like a place for a key on this button. Dont know what its for but I guess its not important because when I opened the side panel, its not connected to anything.

    Re: Got screwed over on E Bay so HELP !!!

    The button I am speaking of is near the rear interior light that is behind the driver seat and placed into the top of the underpass area. You may or may not have this depending on your year. When it comes to the passenger window clicking it seems that the window may be sticking or something is off track and that is why it is making that sound. You will have to open the panel and check it out.

    When it comes to the driver seat I would take it out and clean the buttons and spray them because this car seems to have a lot of issues with connectors corroding much like a BMW of the same year. On the driver window I would do the same thing open the panel and clean anything that moves with electrical spray and oil it.

    you can replace just the lens

    the button is in fact a keyhole, you would use the trunk key once you have it. It allows you to remove the panels and access the manual fuel door release
