    convertible Motor

    i have a 95 Camaro Vert and suddenly my top no longer goes up by switch but it will fold down with ease. from what ive read it could be the switch or the motor fluids . can someone tell me where the relay is located or how to test the switch or how to check and fill the motor with more fluids please

    Pull the driver's side carpet inside the trunk. You will be able to see the hydraulic pump for the top. The reservoir is transparent so you can see the fluid level. Most likely it is low. If it is full, the pump is probably bad.

    Check out the stickies in this section (threads that are saved at the top of the forum) for the one about how to fill the top motor. It will walk you through what you need to know. You may just have had low fluid and pulled air into the system.

    This recently happened to me. Purchased a switch from eBay and now works.
