Default Top Not Working - Not Giving Up!

HELP!

My 2014 370Z convertible touring Top stopped working last year and have since been unable to find a place to fix it. I've tried both an independent car shop, as well as the Nissan Dealer, and they say the only way to fix it is to replace the soft top control unit, which will be almost 4k. I have already invested over 1k in replacing the 5th Bow Latch Sensor, and that did not fix the problem. The dealer did reset the sensors so I would not have to hear the ongoing sound it makes letting me know the top is not completely up.

I did run into a young gentlemen one day in San Clemente, CA and he told me he found a way to 'manually' put it up and down. I wish I would have gotten his phone number.

I don't know what else to do, however am not giving up. I live in San Diego, CA.

Thanks,

Robert

There is at least one thread on this site that mentions a shop that will help you diagnose the problem over the phone and sell you the parts to fix it. If the site's search isn't finding what you want, go to any of the big web search engines and add "site:the370z.com" to your search string.
