The top of our Boxster is not opening/closing on occasion.  After some trouble shooting we determined that this was happening because the car sometimes did not see that the handbrake was engaged.  If the handbrake light on the dash did not come on when the handbrake was engaged the top would not function (not surprisingly).  Has anyone seen this issue and is this a simple contact problem (sticking, etc.) or does the entire handbrake assembly have to be changed or is there a sensor module associated with the handbrake that needs to be replaced or ...?
