Convertible top is stuck open

The motor might be bound up or a release for the top is not opening. Hopefully the drive gears for the top are not stripped out.

Turn on the radio so the battery is engaged, or turn on the engine.

  • 2 Fold down the cargo partition in the trunk and lock it on both sides. If the cargo partition is not down, there will be no place in the trunk to store the convertible top.
  • 3 Press the convertible button forward to open the top. It's located under the circular control button on the consul. The button has a picture of a window with one arrow pointing up and another pointing down.
  • 4 Pull the convertible button backward to close the top.
  • 5 Use your key to open or close the top when you are outside of the BMW but still close to it. Press and hold the arrow button on top of your key to open the top. To close the top, press and hold the Lock button. The car does not need to be turned on to operate the top with the key.

    2003 audi a4 cabrio top wont open. thinking the trunk piece doesnt drop down as it should

    Before anything you have to make sure the lever in the trunck is in the correct position. Assuming it is...

    ...does the top start to open or it doens't even move? Does the hatch where the top goes into start to open? If so, stop the top after you see that the hatch has completely opened, then manually push that piece down. Be carefull not to get stuck and make sure nobody is operating the top while you're attempting this so you don't get your arm stuck there for any reason.

    You could also try to access it from the truck and pull it down manually. I may just snap back into place and the problem will go away. On my car, one of the sides was stuck UP and the other was working. Once it snapped back into place it works every time.

    My a4 audi convertables roof has jammed what do i do wont close back

    Can you first look in the owners manual , there is a procedure for simple solutions .

    If there is a problem with the shelf in the trunk the roof will not function properly.

    open the trunk and pull the lever , does the shelf move up and down or is it jammed .

    If it does not work the shelf needs replacement .

    Ascan tool may be needed to read ant logged faults .

    Top will not open or close flashing light appears onthe inboard dash when you start car

    Look in hand book for manual operation of roof.
    The handle is located side of dash,insert as shown.
    Start manual operation
    You do not have to do the full opening/closure
    After the operation starts and releases rear flap remove handle,
    Start car.Check electric operation of roof
    This op should have reset it

    My soft top is not working, wont go down, when I release the catch the windows go down and when i press the up button to close thr roof the windows close but roof doesnt

    No doubt your soft top issue has long been resolved but just in case someone has a similar issue:
    I started to open my A4 Soft top externally using the door key method and like an idiot I must have disengaged the key before the soft top was fully down. I was unable to activate the opening or closing of the soft top automatically using either the key or soft top switch inside. I then manually closed the soft top using the users handbook and manual tool supplied. Soft top would still Not open automatically and the soft top alarm would activate. I solved the issue by manually opening the soft top fully and then manually closing the soft top fully. This seemed to have reset whatever had gone askew.

    I have a 2003 A4 Quattro. I love the car but have

    Well, don't get nervous. Having to play with the switch and having eventually close the window is a good thing. Go to the aoto psrts store and pick up some silicone spray lubricant.Open the sunroof and spay everything you can see. AAny Tracks, guides. etc. close the window so its only about 3/4 shut and spray yje newly expose tracks and whatever else that has come into view. See how that does asyou run the window through several open and close cycles. Those sunroof motors sre not very powerful and the least bit of resistance works them hard. Good Luck -Ned_
