How much does it cost to replace the convertables top?
Thank you so much. Replaced fuel filter, got info on fuel relay & other fuel related. Taking one step at a time. Did take to a mechanic, his first suggestion was replacing the ignition & key at a cost of $1-3,000. I dont see where the problem points to this. Could it be a key problem? I lost the origianl ignition key and have been using a spare key. I see from this website that this could be a problem on other model vehicles. Thanks again.
