Hi guys. I'm new here. I'm having problems with my convertible top.
I am getting my Z ready for new paint. I tried to put the top up and it got stuck. Now it won't go up or down. All I hear is a clicking from the motor. Can anyone help me with a suggestion? Maybe 5th bow motor?
Thanks in advance.

The retracting roof is a complex mechanism. Are all the rest of the parts (windows, seats, etc.) working properly? If any part gets caught not functioning, the system will stop. I'd suggest taking it to a Nissan specialist to pinpoint the problem before winter arrives.

Better hope it's not the motor; expensive. May just be bow linkage problem. Expect $600-$800 repair. I started having sticking problems after repair last year and lubing the small hinge mechanisms helped tremendously.
