Transtop issues

Postby Jeff685 » Tue May 02, 2023 8:28 pm

Dear All,
I have a 1997 ESI with an electric roof. All has been fine until a few months ago. It no longer functions fully, and sadly of everyone I have tried (Honda Garages, Electrical specialists, etc) none have be able to help. The best I have is a guesstimate from an old Honda mechanic that one, or more, of the slide motors switched may be faulty as they are showing an incorrect position when it stops part way through it cycle.

In short, the windows go down, the boot comes up, the tilter works and raises the roof, the two prongs leave the boot and almost go fully into the roof but they just fail to fully engage and it stops.

Does anyone have any ideas or knowledge of that expert who I come consult?

Many thanks,

Jeff

No real experts but a few people with a little knowledge might be able to help over on the facebook group.

Someone will need to take the trunk\boot off and the underside plastics (not as daunting as it sounds), operate the TT and see what is happening on top and below, inspect the plastic worm rod guides. If that all looks normal and the rods aren't flapping around and jamming up the slider, its going to be a question of removing the slider mech and testing it as per the manual. They can be a bugger to set correctly! Slider tends to be the worst bit when it breaks down!
