new status on my top

well I took it to the dealer and he says for 128 diagnosas fee that the deck lid motor transmission is broken and he can replace it for $762 the part alone is 458 from them so I will look this weekend to see if I can do it or not if not I am going to have to wait but at least the top is up and safe and I can drive
