Default Got my Roadster! Need some help....

I just picked up a 2010 Roadster Platinum Graphite Auto

It is a CPO from Nissan with 18k miles on it and all I can say... It brings a smile to face every time I drive it

One small problem I am hoping someone could shed some light on....

Everytime I close the top about half way through I hear a LOUD Single POP! As if something got stuck and it pops to release??

Is this normal or has anyone come across this issue?

Thanks

Did you check if the plastic hatch cover hits the soft-top assembly momentarily when the top is being closed? If it does, that makes a similar noise too. You might need to take it back to the dealer for adjustments.

there is a point where the roof basically unfolds and changes direction - kind of hard to describe.. the fabric makes a noise as it flips - but i wouldnt call it a 'pop'

I will have someone else close it and I will watch or film it with my iPhone to see if I can pinpoint where it pops... It is definitely a loud thump/pop single noise.

I appreciate your feedback

Again, they all do that. nothing to worry about. The hydralics are set up to fold/unfold at certain points. Its not a flow type of system...YET!

Yup. No worries. The rear part of the roof plops down at midway point and makes a loud thump/clunk sound. It is rather disconcerting when you first hear it.
