2006 Porsche 997 - Convertible Top Failure
My convertible top has failed and a visual inspection showed that the hydraulic fluid was a little low but above the minimum. On the button press, it sounds like the pump is running however there is no movement of any of the parts involved in raising/lowering the top. Before proceeding to purchase a very expensive hydraulic pump I wanted to post this for opinions on diagnosing the problem more completely,.
Have you scanned the car for error codes? You may also have a micro switch failure
I would inspect all components of the convertible top system. It may be jammed or have a leaking hydraulic hose.
It cannot hurt to top of the hydraulic fluid but I suspect a bad pump or ram.
