Ok there is a loose wire and when your rpms get to arround 5-6 im sure your motor starts to wiggle and jiggle a bit and they touch thats where your cut appears but at idle id think they are apart eanough to keep the electricity from jumping get it checked out at a mechanic or try and locate the wire yourself

How do I opened a fully automatic convertible top manually on a 1997 328i bmw


Most have a seperate crank to open and close top in case of an emergency ....If you have checked all fuses,relays,..etc..and know motor is broken you can remove the drive from the motor and raise it manually by hand with an assistant on the other side..

to check oil start vehicle in park and let idle, open large allen bolt [normally 17mm] on g/box sump, oil should spill from aperture. if not top up until it does. this must be done at a temperature of less than 30 degrees celsius as oil expands at higher temperatures.

Check the electric motors at that are located underneath the fabric in the trunk of the car. One is behind the left tail light the other underneath the roof hold.

First open them up if the gears are exposed it means that they are not engaged. To re engage simply push them back into place.

Before re engaging manually bring up the roof and then press the roof sequence button.

To make sure that the roof electric motors are functioning before re engaging let someone press the button and check that the gears move, While disengaged they will only move for about 5 to 10 seconds.
