I used my key to open my trunk. From there I used the small tool and cranked it closed.

is there a way of getting the stowage cover down so i can get into the trunk to manually crank the top down I've read all the threads on this topic and no one has explained how to do this
is it even possible without removing the cover?
#156 of 169 Volvo 03 C70 Convertible Roof Problem..
Mar 27, 2012 (12:17 am)
I have a 03 C70 soft top. After driving the car all winter i tried to but the roof down today but with no joy!
The light on the switch to put the roof down is not coming one when pressing it! (nothing happens when you press it)
I checked the main fuse's but all seem ok! Called Volvo garage but was told they need to put the car onto the computer at a cost of £100 to see what the fault is alone!
Can anyone help me with this problem or tell me where to start!
I tried taking the earth of the battery but still nothing!
Also is there a way to manually put the roof down and up? In the handbook it only tells you how to crank the roof up. BUT NOT DOWN!
Be great full if anyone could help me on this problem. Thanks

When I had to put my roof down I used the same method of cranking it just cranked it in the opposite direction. I hope you get yours working. I found a small garage that took care of me rather than the dealer. The dealers tend to over charge compared to the smaller mechanics.
Hope this helps.
#158 of 169 Volvo C70 2004 soft top out sequence closing
Sep 07, 2012 (10:26 am)
My C70 2004 soft top does not close properly. Something is out of sync. When the top raises from trunk (to close), I hear a loud snap, then, metal steel locking devices come forward before top closes completely. Top then slams onto windshield frame ...unable to close b/c metal is in the way. Top is to close first, then metal rods motions forward to lock top in place. Everything works, but sequence is an issue.
#159 of 169 99 C70 rear window separating
Nov 06, 2012 (1:50 pm)
The rear window has started to separate from the canvas on my top, "delaminating" per the dealer. Am being told the glass can not be reglued, and the only way to fix it is to replace the top! Anyone have this happen to their C70? Was told a canvas top only lasts about 6 years and they can't believe mine is a 99. Any comments would be appreciated. Hate the thought/cost of replacing the top.

#162 of 169 04 c70 top cycle no chime windows do not lower at begining of cycle
Apr 23, 2013 (5:50 pm)
I have an 04 c70 and I first noticed that that the rear window demister was not working. I have also noticed that the chime at the end of the lowering or raising of the top does not sound. Also the windows do not lower when the top starts its cycle.
From what I read on VADIS the control module is suppose to lower the windows 5cm at the begging of the cycle. Also the boot is not suppose to be able to be open via the switch (I can open it while lowering or raising the top but it does stop). Also the rear defroster is shup off when the cycle is not complete which is why I think the defroster does not work.
I have checked the fuses and they seem to be fine. I found a buzzard or Relay that reads "Audible Hood Warning Unit 8611543" I204
I am not sure if this is the relay for the chime. I tried to test it by putting power to the connectors but I did not hear a click.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks..
