    Convertible roof and ice

    Hi all,

    I managed to dig my car out from under all the snow this morning, but the roof had ice on it under the snow.

    I had parked half on the path and half on the road and when i drove off the roof flexing with the ice stuck on it sounded terrible, even driving down the road it was creaking.

    What i want to know though is the roof strong enugh not to split with the ice stuck to it or do i need to empty the garage of junk to fit the car in??

    Thanks

    Don't know much about the roof, but i'd put the heater on max to see if the ice melts and try to remove as much as possible

    putting the heaters on doesnt effect the roof unfortunatly as it is fully lined

    I have had my mk4 convertible for over a year and in that time i have had no issue with ice/snow damaging my roof, so Im sure you will be fine. You also have to remember with the convertible not having a "solid" roof the car is going to flex anyway.

    Not that I have that particular problem over here (41C today, 43C predicted for the weekend!!!) . . . but, as it is a fabric roof the best place for it would be in the garage. Surely the car takes priority over a pile of junk!
