Pluriel, the roof will not completely go down

If you need help with your C3 Pluriel, that seems specific to the Pluriel (like the roof), ask here. Engine and Transmission problem must be asked in the relevant topic for the problem. The Pluriel shares the same Engine, Gearbox, Brakes and Transmission as the other C3 models (see above for the correct section).

Questions about the Pluriel Roof system can be asked here
No engine, gearbox or running gear questions
Think: Pluriel roof and rear window jobs
Did you know the Pluriel shares the engines, gearboxes, electrical, audio system, suspension, steering and running gear with the early C3?

Hi

The pluriel roof is prone to damage and breaking of the mechanical parts that allow it to open and close over the lifetime of the roof.

You could have something broken in the roof mechanicals. The roof is often uneconomical to repair unless you can fix it yourself, but still the parts are not cheap.

There are quite a few diagrams of the parts for the pluriel roof on the forum, so it would be worth investigating each mechanical part to see that each functions correctly, but such an old car, probably won't be worth repairing.
