top problems

The convertible top on my 2003 Mustang GT raises very slowly. It gets about halfway up, then pretty much stops. I have to pull it the rest of the way down. Is this a common problem? What can I do to fix it?

trouble shoot

Is the mechanism binding, does it need lubrication, are you low on Hyd fluid in the system.
