Question about 2001 BMW 330
My top was slashed and I took it to the upholsterer to get a new top.
They replaced the top and now when Iet the top down everythng works
fine up until the final stage of the process.
The lid comes over the top once it is in place but the lid does not close flush. It seems as if the convertible top is sitting too high and is thus keeping the lid from shutting completely. I can force the lid down with my hands, so I am not sure if there is actually an obstruction.
Because the top never fully sets, it fails to trip whatever switch needs to be tripped and the top will not go up. To fix it, I need to get out and push on the lid a few times, then turn the car off for a few moments, upon turning the car back on and depressing the convertible top button it will close fully and the lid will be flush.
Top still needs to be adjusted to fully seat properly in the trunk/boot. if the upholsterer who replaced the top is not familiar with the adjusting process for a BMW, then i would take it to a BMW dealer and have them do the final adjustments.
