Manual Convertible Top

2855 5
Does any 1 know a site or can tell me how to drop the top on my 1990 325I convertible.. The car was inherited without any manuals, even the diagram on the drivers side sun visor is gone. ( I understand that this is where directions for lowering the top were). Ive gotten as far as undoing the latches near the sun visors. Started to partially fold the top, pulled the handle on the left side of the rear passenger seat. I hear a click but the cap does not come up so I can fold the top into i ts compartment. Is there a step Im missing?? I even tried doing it with all the windows down.. HELP !!

ok this is what you do. unlock the top from the windshield, you should a a little handle on the drivers side in the back, to get to this handle you have to lift the back of the top, you should here a click, manually lift this lid, while holding it up, reach between the lid and the car, on the drivers side, you will feel a latch, this latch moves front to back, after you move this latch, the lid will come up, this is where the top is stored. be careful when you store the top, you will see where you have to push the material towards the back of the car, if you don't do this it will not fit. if you have any problems just email me. good luck
