Fold the top properly!


If You still have the cars manual you may already know this. If not You may have some use of this information.
Note: this applies only to Cabrios up to 1971. From ´72 the mechanism was altered so the top shall fold as in the first picture


The top must not be caught in the mechanism in this way.
Note that this only applies to models -71 or older for the 1972 model the construction was altered and the top shall fold in like this.


The top must be folded out in this way so that it could get low enough to let the locking mechanism to lock.

Lock it!

The locking mechanism was altered during the years but the with the same function. These pictures was taken on my old -51 Cabrio
