Hi, the control panel button on my Cali is playing up. I have to push the button on an angle to try to make it respond. I’m a bit concerned to put the roof up in case I can’t change the instructions to take it down again.

Is this a common problem? Any hints?

Thanks
John

Hi
Yes it'll be the control button, the splines break off easily but you can get a replacement from the Cali Shop for about £34 and it comes with a new front panel. Did mine last week, easy once you get the old one out, see

Just a tip for anyone thinking of removing their control panel, makes sure that when reconnecting the plugs at the back, you reconnect the smallest plug first. Apparently, from the Cali tech at VW Liverpool, if you don't the unit will fail to recognise the heater and you will have to get VW to recode the unit. I did as he said and everything is working fine.
