996 Convertible Top Use


Vehicle Information: Model: 911 Carrera Cab; Year: 2001; Body Type: Convertible; Total Mileage: 15,000;

During the inclement weather season in Houston, I put the removable hard top on my cab, being careful that the convertible top folds neatly into its compartment and putting a towel between the window folds. My service rep (Momentum Porsche) has, in the past, mentioned that the convertible top should not remain in the stowed position for extended periods, as the self lubricating cables tend to dry out and can give problems. I had a cable failure on my previous Porsche, a '97 Boxster, so I am anxious to avoid that expense.Should I periodically take off the hard top and exercise the convertible top? If so, how often?Thanks for your answer.Jim Heimer
