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.

To close the top, the parking brake must be engaged and the ignition in the ON position. Assuming that these conditions are met, you can close the top manually if needed. The procedure involves (1) removing key, (2) removing convertible top link covers, (3) gently prying conv top lid links on both side, (4) lifting the conv top lid to open position, (5) gently prying the red links off, and (6) finally manually lifting the top to the closed position.

Before taking such measures, if you do not hear the motors, check the B6 and D3 relays. You might also want to check the microswitch on the top/center windshield frame.

How do you reset the motor and anything else?I manually disengaged the top on a 1997 BMW 328I convertible


Happens alot. If you or someone pulls the interesting red strap under the rear seat, you have to do a reset. You have a small shot at just re-engaging the motors but will probably have to do a full reset. Take the back seat out and push lever back into the correct position. If you have a semi auto top (have to manually unlock top where it meets the windshield), lift the top back until you can pull up the back of the top to access tonnau cover. If it is a fully auto top, you have to pull out the cover at the very front of the headliner to access manual crank port. There should be a small allen wrench in the trunk tool box. You have to crank and crank and crank until the top is slightly open. You can then lift the back of the top to access tonneau cover. Both top types are the same from here on. Lift up on the tonneau cover and stow the top. Have a friend (or a heavy tool box) push down on the front part of the cover on the passenger side. You will hear a click. This will allow you to open the trunk. There are two motors located in the driver side rear quarter panel. You have to take out the covers hiding them. One motor is sort of in a horizontal placement under the pan where the top is stowed. Push up on this to re-engage. Other motor is in a vertivle orientation and at the driver side rear quater panel. You have to sort of grab the motor with both hands and pull it back into engangement with a gripping motion. Close the trunk. Push the switch to close the top (forward) and hold it down. Insert the key and turn it two clicks (accessory). After about 10 - 15 seconds you will hear the tonneau cover close and then open and the top closes. Let it cycle through and you are done. Hope that helps!

Convertbile top will not work it does not make any noise or respond in any way whats the problem


The convertible top is controlled by 2 electric motors. One for each side, located in the back corners near the rear 1/4 windows. Check 30A PWR ACC fuse in the panel left end dash panel. Convertible top switch located in center overhead by rear\view mirror. Make sure BYPASS switch L/R trunk is in NORMAL position. There is also a RELAY for the conv top in the R/R trunk. Hope this helps.

The top on my 2005 mini cooper s will not go down .


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

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.

The top of my 1999 porsche boxster wont close. When i push the button it doesn't even make a noise like it is trying to close. what should i do?


The convertible top on my 1998 boxster would not work either, nor would the windows go down. If you have checked the fuse and it is fine, then it may be what I had experienced which is the switch located in the center console directly under the hand brake. There is a white plastic switch with a plunger on it that is engaged by the handbrake being raised. When the handbrake is engaged it activates the switch which then allows the convertible top to be activated. It's a $5.00 part, (I know, I couldn't believe it either) from the porsche dealer, and a very easy to do yourself job, it took me 10 minutes from start to finish. It would be worth spending the $5 and replacing it anyway, at least you could rule it out if it stll does not work you only spent $5 rather thank $140 an hour labor rate at dealer. Pop the side plastic panel under the hand brake on the drivers side and you will see the white plastic switch. Good luck.
