Before I had my car painted I dropped the targa on my rear quarter & chipped the paint!:surprised I am very carefull since then.....I always put the top on by myself. :lookinup: p.s the time I dropped the top on the car I was slightly intoxicated!:cheers:
When I had my 98 coupe/targa, I always took it off and reinstalled by myself. The biggest problem I had was getting the 2 pins at the rear of the roof into the recepticle holes on the body and then only if the windows were up. Windows down no prob.
Release the 3 latches, from the drivers side I'd lift up the front of the top slightly to allow my left hand underneath, lift up with left then slide my right hand to the rear and lift out.
The rear glass needs t be up to make it a smooth lift pivot walk a few steps, pivot and place into the rear.
i hear the C5 top is pretty awkward.i have never taken mine off,iv'e owned the car for almost two year's now.i think the C4 look's killer with the top off,and i think the C5 look's weird with the top off.but that's just me..:laughing: damn the thing is going to have to come off so i can put some weather striping conditioner on them...
