    Bentley Azure 1997 soft top

    Hi
    Am new to forum but hope all that experience out there can shed some light on my problem.
    Top will erect to mid position and stops sounding alarm and will advance
    no further. It will return to stowed position but all further attempts to
    erect hood give the same result.
    Just sitting here hoping it doesn't rain!!

    Can be one of three things:

    I have the same automobile. The convertible top is a nightmare.

    1.) Check the fluid level in the reservoir in the trunk. Refill if necessary with CASTROL HSMO MINERAL OIL.
    2.) The mechanism has many sensors to halt operation if something is out of sync.
    3.) Worst case scenario, you have a ruptured hydraulic hose or ram - expensive, expensive repair. If this is the problem you should see the mineral oil on the ground.

    Items 2 & 3 are best handled by an experienced Bentley technician. To replace hydraulic hoses that run from the front to the rear is a bear. You pretty much have to dismantle the interior trim on the passenger side of the automobile.

    My guess is it's a leak somewhere.

    Good Luck
