Default Convertible top operation

2 convertible questions please. This is my first convertible and am concerned about durability.

1st one, is there any preventive maintenance to the careand operation of the top operating system?

2nd one, should the top get stuck in betweencompletely up or down is there anyway to get top back up for trip to Ford dealership?

My first convertible as well, so I'll try and help you asI can.

1) You can do a few things, see the thread below titled top care. Basically, keep it clean, don't do anything weird to it, and try and keep it from the weather as possible (garage, car cover, etc).

2) You can try and pull it by hand ? Although I'd just leave it and drive slowly.... actually, I have no idea what I'd do, this is a good question.

You could probably pull it up, but they are HEAVY. Takes two and it's still kinda hard.
