      Hi Bob

      When you put the roof down one of the first thing that happens is the rear quarter windows drop down and say down.

      When you raise the roof back up, as it nears the last stage then the rear quarters pop back up again.

      If you interior the lower or raising sequence then everything gets confused – you can end up with the roof up and the quarter Windows still down. If this happens you should fully lower the roof and then raise it again.

      As far as I know, you can’t raise the rear quarter Windows with the roof down

      Thats great, just as long as I know thats right. Had a SLK & other rag tops That rise to cut out draft but they were cheap motors nothing as high tec as a Jaguar.

      The rear quarter on one of our convertibles got stuck in the up position for a while, and we actually found that the combination of having it still up and the wind deflector made it very comfortable to cruise at speed.

      Such that we have considered seeing if we could install an additional bit of wiring to override the ‘programmed’ position (both up and down positions) – needs some thoughts though 🙂
