I have a 2004 mini cooper convertible. The roof opens to half way and will then flash red if i want it ti close all the way, All windows shut initally, but now when closing the roof the driver side rear...


I am not sure what you are trying to do. But if the problem is that the roof will only open to the first stage, sun roof, and no further, the problem is the package shelf in the trunk.

If the package lid gets pushed up and is not pushed back to it's normal position, the roof will fail to open completely. If you lift the bottom of the roof at the boot, there are levers on either side to release the bottom edge of the roof, you can make certain that the package shelf is seated correctly. Once the shelf is seated, the roof will open in all of it's glory.

Have you checked the parcel shelf is seated properly as there are micro switches beneath it so the car knows it will not jam the roof as it is lowered?

Convertable roof mechanism faulty


Talk to your dealer, they should make a claim to MINI. Just look on google, you are not the first with this problem. In many cases MINI has covered the labour and sometimes the parts. Find as many simular problems as you can on the internet (www.mini2.com, www.northamericanmotoring.com) and print these and take them with you to your dealer.
It should cost you not more than $400

2004 Mini cooper convertible roof


Make sure that the microswitches in the rear trunk are all depressed. There is one where the parcel shelf (the cover that covers the view of the trunk from the outside) sits on the left that is usually the problem make sure that it is sitting on the microswitch (pull down on the closest side to you so it pivots forward and sits on the microswitch. Then make sure that the latch on the left side (drivers side) of the rear that allows easier access to the trunk switches the microswitch there. now close the trunk and try the conv top. the parcel shelf, the rear access latch and i think the trunk switches need to be depressed for the top to work. I know at least the first two.
