I have a 3 part question. First, when running the A/C (at any setting) my car tends to idle at very low RPM and stall shortly after if I don't hit the accelerator. This occurs whether cold or warm, after start-up or at a stop light.A/c problem? Second, when at a stand still, I have trouble shifting into 1st gear, and then even more going into 2nd (as if clutch isn't depressed at all), then a quick grind into 3rd occasionally.2nd gear has the most problems, shifting up or down. New clutch, fluid level, tranny, gears, syncros even? Last, is there a way to access and service the convertible top motor? Putting the top down is a breeze, going back up is almost a 2 minute chore for the motor with lots of straining noise. Please help. Much appreciated!

Don't know anything about it. Just pretty low miles, my uncle bought it from an auction, put gas in it, changed the oil (I hope), and gave it to me when he got sick. The clutch/shifting issue is relatively recent (maybe a month) while the others were known beforehand (conv. Top motor, a/c - stall). This is a great running car overall (minus these 3 small quirks). Just doing some preventive maintenance. Thanks for taking the time to answer.
