NO! It's a roll bar! If it moved at all, and you rolled it, the whole thing could come down on you. How long have you had this car? Did the roll bar come with it? I think the only thing you can do if it is a problem would be to remove it. If you are lucky, it is bolted in and not welded.

IT RUNS OFF YOUR TOP MOTOR LOCATED UNDER A COVER UNDER YOUR SPARE TIRE. IF THE TOP MOTOR OIL TANK IS EMPTY IT WILL NOT WORK. YOU MIGHT HAVE A BLOWN FUSE. YOU CAN NOT PUT THE BAR DOWN MAN BY HAND.

Sorry, I thought you had a real roll bar and not a trim item.
