Asked by Apr 22, 2017 at 09:00 AM about the 2001 Chrysler Sebring LXi Convertible FWD

Question type: Car Customization

My top motor is giving up the ghost - rather than replace it, can it just be
disconnected and the top put up and down manually?

I wouldn't think that would be a problem. Although the motor/linkage may also help to hold it in the down position so that the wind doesn't try lifting it up. I'm not sure if there is any other type of latching feature in the down position.

if your going that route i would do some trial and error first also you take the motor and have rebuilt a lot cheaper then a new one
