Trunk roof (storage) box won't retract

Sounds like the cable snapped. It happens. I've replaced 3 xs in my 03. First was after someone crashed into my backside.
Sucks. Its a cheap plastic mechanism and expensive to replace.

Loyalty or stupidity? Hmm...!

Well, this has been one pain in the ass problem over the course of many months.

So much so that I went and bought another car while still trying to figure out the Audi. I know - I'm a...

It's likely the cable; I've had THREE different times it's been replaced ($$OUCH) on mine. Seriously, it's made rather cheaply (mainly plastic), and many people have had to replace it or live w/ it....

JUST had this happen!
Of course, it was parked outside during unusually rainy So CA weather. Opened the trunk and water streamed out of those 2 holes all over the place.
It's the seal alright. My...

Yep! My concern was if this was a loose nut or bolt...was something going to come apart because of this?
But nothing ever did.
At least it wasn't our brains rattling!

Recommendation for a Convertible Top Place

Wow. Great pics.

It's amazing that this is still quite the issue.
I'm dumbfounded that Audi didn't recall these. You'd think it would be deemed a safety hazard as it could bonk someone on the head or fly out while...
