About Roof Soft Top Motors

Whilst  the  roofs  of  many  soft  top  convertible  cars  are  retracted  manually,  in  others  - particularly  more  modern  vehicles  -  the  roof  is  raised  and  lowered  with  the  assistance  of  an  electric  or hydraulic  soft top roof motor. 

To  operate  the  raising  and  lowering  of  the  roof  involves  engaging  a  power  switch.  Certain  fabric roofs  have  a  set  of  clips  to  secure  the  roof  in  place  and  keep  it  water -tight.  These  need  to  be  unfastened  before  lowering  the  roof.  When  the  switch  is  engaged,  the  electric  or hydraulic  soft  top  roof  motor  causes  a  gear  to  turn  on  each  side  of  the  car, which  drives  the  roof  open.  These  gears  are  connected  to  a  bracket  which,  in  turn,  connects  to  the  roof  itself.

The  roof  is  constructed  using  various  brackets  and  arms  which,  when  the  opening  mechanism  is  engaged,  fold  inside  the  roof’s  structure  and  unfold  when  the  roof  is  closed.

The  soft  top  roof  motor  makes  the  process  of  operating  a  soft  top  roof  quicker  and  easier  than  doing  it  manually.  Many  vehicles  with  a  soft  top  roof  motor  do  allow manual  operation  in  the  event  that  the  motor  breaks  down.  Replacement  motors  may  be  purchased  but  they  can  be  an  expensive  component  and  the  fitting  can  be  complicated,  sometimes  requiring  the  complete  removal  of  the soft top.

Iveco trivia

  • In 1986, Iveco signed a deal with Ford to create Iveco Ford Truck Ltd, intended to make it easier to break into the British car market.
  • The Iveco Daily is a very unique van in that it is one of the only ones you can buy that still has separate chassis and body construction. Most others use unibody construction. The separation means that the Iveco Daily is better at managing heavy loads.
  • The Iveco Stralis NP was presented with the 'Green Truck Award' by the German magazine, Verkehrsrundschau, who praised their vehicles as being leaders in the field of sustainable transport.
  • In 2012, Iveco started partnering with supermarket chain Asda and delivered 250 delivery vehicles to the chain's fleet. The total order was for 700 vehicles.
  • Iveco is actually five different European companies that formed in 1975. The brands from Italy, Germany, and France decided that they'd make more of an impact by pooling their resources, and the gamble certainly paid off.
