    Help Needed - Does your Soft Top Roof do this?

    My car has been into the dealer 5 times for the following problem and they can't fix it, despite replacing part under Porsches advice.

    * When the top lowers there is a rear plastic bar that attaches the soft top to the bulkhead via two clips. This pops off either when the roof is fully lowered of half-way up when it is raised. The weight of the glass screen pushes down on it and it releases.

    * The roof has two bits of velcro that attach the inner lining to the frame. One pieces always comes off as it is pulled off when the roof goes down.

    The dealer has replaced the clips, bar and other parts - retightened the roof and cables but there is still a problem. Porsche have not been able to solve the problem either.

    My question is:

    has anyone else had this problem and know of a fix?

    The dealer wants the car to go to the bodyshop now????

    Everytime I get the car back the dealer says that the problem was fixed, road tested and it didnt do it. I believe them in this totally but as soon as I lower the roof it does it!!

    I think a new roof might be the option.

    The car is an Oct 05 Boxster 987 2.7

    Huh, I haven't had this problem, or at least I haven't noticed it.. I"ll try to take a look at it tonight.

    Re: Help Needed - Does your Soft Top Roof do this?

    nope, mine's fine.

    the only problem is still the bloody engine whine and some interior rattles.

    otherwise, 100% happy.

    Re: Help Needed - Does your Soft Top Roof do this?

    Steve I haven't had a problem like this ever, and my car has 9100 miles on it now. I suspect some component is bent a small amount or perhaps one of the joints flexes inappropriately allowing the problem to occur. Regardless, I bet you will end up with a new roof at some point.

    Derder: I have engine whine (not too bad, but noticable) - not sure if it's the same whine as yours. Also have the 2krpm 'moo', and slight rattles. All non-critical. Still love the car.
    SteveR: Haven't noticed any roof problems. Sorry! May poke around later to look, but I think mine's fine @ 11kmiles. You don't seem to be having much luck! Have you tried a different dealer? Fresh pair of eyes/hands and all that?

    Might try that soon, but what a pane. 5 months, 5 trips, same problem!
