Default Normal speed for top to go up and down..

Just got this 1990 Convertible, top goes up and down but not very fast...can someone tell me the normal time for the top to go from up to totally down?

Also, any hints on replacing all the rubber convertible parts around the roof and quarter windows? Quarter windows "wiggle" a lot when going up or down...

I'm not sure about your year model. I have a 2003 and with the factory rams, it took about 9 seconds to go up and down. Since I replaced both rams and hoses, it takes 12 seconds to go up and down. The supplier said his lifts would take a little longer. Don't know if this is any help.

My 02 using factory parts takes 7 seconds either way on the dot.
