    When I push the button to put down my top the top goes down with no problem, the button light stays green waiting for the 4 windows to go up, I hear the motor working but the windows dont go up and the light stays green. It gives me a locked symbol on my dashboard. when I drive with that warning it continues to beep, becasue its in a lock mode. All windows work fine and my top goes down with no problem. Can it be the computer being out of sync...

Often times this problem ends up needing a front sunroof section of the conv top replaced. The cable that drives the hooks to unlatch is most likely broken and that is currently the only fix. EXPENSIVE. Sorry

Check in the trunk that the plastic shelf is down and lying flat. make sure the locking arms are down. there's a button on the left where the shelf sits that needs to be depressed to tell the car it's ok to put the top down. then roll all the windows all the way down, then all the way up. then try putting the top down again.

Mini cooper 2005 convertible top wont retract on passengers side


take the cover off the arm on the conv. and you'll most likely see a broken retractor arm. If you pull both sides off you'll see how the functional one works and how the other isn't working properly. With a little ingenuity, you'll be able to patch it and get it working.

My 2005 mini coopers convertible top will go back to the sunroof position. It will not go any further. When I press the button for it to go back the rest of the way a red light flashes on the controls. ...


sounds like the motor is going out or the track is getting stuck somewhere. you can try winding manually . call mini or bmw and they can walk you through it or give me year/make/model and i will try to walk you through.

Hi, When i press the button to open the electric (convertable) roof it only starts to open on the left side, the right side is not even responding... Do you have any idea why or how this is...


More than likely the cable on the inside of the right mechanism snapped. To repair it, the entire mechanism needs replaced to the tune of upwards of $3000 USD. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. And even worse is there is no real way to check it without pulling the mechanism apart. I hope you find this information useful. You may wish to stalk the junkyards for one out of a junker. You can probably hook one of those up for about $300.00. You may also wish to look for the lift mechanism. Here is a place that has both, pretty reasonably priced. They could also help you to pinpoint the problem better based on you actual experience.

I borroweD this mini cooper convertible and can't figure out how to get the top down


The car must be stopped before the top will go down. Simply press ahd hold the button just above the rear-view mirror. If you are out of the car you can use the key just hold the unlock button and the windows will go down and top will open to the "sun roof" position...release the button and press and hold again to finish lowering the top.

2007 Mini Cooper Convertible top doesn't open all the way when I push the button.


The top down function is a two step process...1- hold button until sunroof is all the way open then release button. 2- Press and hold button again until top goes all the way down.

If you try this and it still doesn't work , note the light on the button. If it's flashing it indicates a fault... most likely an obstruction. Check that latches on rear cargo shelf are firmly latched. Check that parcel shelf is firmly down. (open and firmly close all three of these things and try again)


cheers

Mini cooper 2005 convertible top broken


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
