Need Help Fixing My Solstice
« on: October 06, 2017, 11:27:16 AM »
Hi Gang -

I have a 2006 Solstice.  When I pop open the trunk to release the convertible top, one side of the top will not release.  I went on to youtube and learned how to get the one side released, which I did.   Now I just need to figure out what part I need to replace and how to fix it.   

Welcome any and all help.  Need to fix this before winter sets in.

Thank you.

Yeah, that was the fix. I haven't had the issue yet but at least when I do it'll be an easy fix. Haven't got any split shot lead sinkers but my neighbour does.    :D
Just trying to do my part...
