Default convertible top help,

ok, i just posted my hello in another thread. I picked up this 01 9-3 and it has a tricky top. You disconnect the top at the windshield channel an hit the button to put it back and the rear will start to lift and then you get a "check soft top boot" warning.

if you give it a second you can just push it up and hold it and then hit the button again and the top will lower, but it just needs a little assistance. It seems like the motor is just weak. But it might be something else.

Is there anything specific that i should check? I didn't know if there was a typical part that goes bad on these.
