Q: Convertible top won't come back up on 1995 Chrysler LeBaron

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I was able o get the top down and now the top won'[t come back up. I cannot even hear the motor. It does nothing. I cannot afford a new motor. Can I spray silicon on it to get it back up? What should I do? Anyone have a used cheap top and/or motor?

You can manually close the top with the aide of an assistant, one on each side of the vehicle. Grasp the front edge of the top (Header) and slowly lift the top and pull forward until it is in the closed position. You will feel resistance from the hydraulic cylinders. Just lift and pull in a slow steady motion. Latch your top and leave if closed until you can afford to have it repaired.
