How to Remove your Soft Top.....56k Beware

Post by MarcBMWZ4 » Wed Jul 06, 2016 6:04 pm

Got the soft top off my Z today, been going really slowly and step by step. Overall though not an extremely difficult job and I'm certainly no mechanic/handyman/contortionist.

I did battle a little to disconnect the electric clips on the wiring harnesses but eventually I came right. There do seem to be some differences between facelift and pre-facelift cars (mine is an '07 facelift) but overall the instructions posted here are brilliant, wouldn't have managed without them. As expected, pump was sitting in a pool of water and completely soaked, annoyingly, the non-motor side was dry.

Drove the car without the roof in and definitely noticed the performance improvement, tempted to leave it out :driving:

It seems that way,never taken a roof off as it must be a pita of a task especially as it would be a two man job so as not to scratch or bend anything .
Anyway well done op .good luck with the fix.

Perhaps me and you should get our coats now Mike :dizzy: :rofl: :rofl:
