    I have a 2001 Cobra convertible and everything works in the car except for the top...

    The top worked for the first few months I had it, and now it only goes down. If someone sits inside the car and pushes the button to put it up, it raises about 6 or 8 inches and then stops.... BUT!!! If someone holds the button to raise the top and another person assists the top up from the outside, it will make it's way all the way up.

    What the heck could it be???

    Probably the motor is going bad. You should look into replacing it soon before it stops altogether.

    Nah, I think it is low hydraulic fluid.

    Either way pull out the back seat and take a look at what is going on, hopefully you will not see hydraulic fluid everywhere...

    Mine had a leaking cylinder you can find them online. I believe blue oval sells a complete kit both cylinders pump and hoses for around $500. In my case my right cylinder was leaking causing the pump to struggle and heat up. Then would die. Have to sit and cool. Better just to do the whole system once then replace parts then have another fail
