Convertible Top

I have a 1990 LX Convertible 4 cyl
The top stop working it will not go up or down
I checked the fluid in motor and looks like it full
When trying up or down all I hear is a clicking sound
Does anyone know what it could cause the top not to go up or down
Thanks

Bad motor, bad pump, stuck cylinders to name a few things you can check.

Pull the panel and unhook the cylinders. Try to motor. If you still get a click I would assume the motor is bad.

The positive about disconnecting the cylinders is that you can operate the top manually if you need to.

You should hear a buzz coming from the hydraulic motor.
