I have a land rover freelander 2002, the window from the tail gate door goes down by itself and stays down. The window goes up fine but when it closes all the way up, comes right back down. This problem...


I've had something like this happen a couple of times.

The cure in both instances (and probably will be in yours) is the 'recalibration' of the window lift system.

It IS in the user handbook, but here is the procedure anyway.


1 Ensure the tail door is closed, the vehicle unlocked and the alarm disarmed.
2 On 3 door models, ensure the roof is on (hard back) or lowered and secured (soft back).
3 With the ignition on, use the console switch, or the vehicle key in the tail door lock, to raise the window until the
motor stalls with the window fully closed.

(the holding the switch on until the motor 'stalls' is the key thing - you MUST allow the motor to stall)

4 Switch off the ignition.

If the calibration procedure is unsuccessful, the CCU will sound a warning for approximately 0.8 second and fully lower
the window.
Tail door window calibration can fail for the following reasons:
l Window stops before minimum travel is achieved.
l Window does not achieve a stall.
l Window request removed before stall is achieved.
l Tail door opened while driving window up.

This is easy, first locate the top button on the center console but do not push yet, next the lever on the front off the top, reach your right hand up and grab lever and pull down and twist counter clock wise to unlock it, you may feel roof pop up a little then with roof unlocked push handle back into its slot, next is push button and hold, the roof will start to open and the trunk will start to open and the roof will store away i the trunk,, make sure trunk is empty at first use, then with the top down and trunk closed you are done, open the trunk just to look inside to see where the top goes, this is to make sure nothing gets in the way of the roof, i cant remember if area is blocked off or not but this is a good idea just so you know.
To close the roof you hit and hold the button and roof will come out of the trunk area automaticlly the roof will end up closed all you do is pull lever down then pull on lever to close roof all the way untwist lever and it will go into lock, you will feel this, once it is in the lock groove you will twist lever to the right to lock it, with it locked you then push lever back into its slot. good day

Liftgate will not stay open. When you push button it opens fully, but then immediately closes


HilAry when the lift gate goes to the open position does it make a grinding noise when it reaches the fully opened position and then closes, If so the gear driven assembly may have had a tooth broken on one of the gears and has striped out causing the gate to fall back down. If this is not the case meaning there is no grinding noises coming from the gate then you have a ecm module that operates the functions of the gear driven unit telling it when to stop and go down. If this is the problem you might want to take it to the dealership to program the new unit. I hope this helps.

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.

Hi everyone. I just got my Eclipse spyder 08 and after shipping for few weeks, i have some problems with the top. when opening the top' the rear window does not goes up fully before the cover gets up and...


Run the top so the decklid opens, and down inside the top stow area there is a ~3" square access door for manual operation of the pump. Make sure the valve is tight!

I have seen many many 2008s that were never tightened enough from the factory.

Convertible Top Lid Not Closing


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.

How to put top down 1998 BMW Convertible


depends on what type of top you have (full power or power assisted).

if power assisted, then release the latches on the inside where the top meets the windshield, then hit the button on the lower dash (its near the button for the heated seats & traction control) and give it a little push with your hand to start it folding. it has a picture of a side window & top on it. pushing it one way lowers the top. you have to be in park (or drive with foot on brake) to lower it. hold the switch down, the side windows will lower a bit and the top will begin to move. keep holding it till the top tucks under the boot and the windows begin to go back up, then release it. if the light on this button is not flashing when you release it, then the top is tucked away properly. if still flashing, then keep it depressed until the top folding sequence is complete.

if a fully automatic top (you will not have latch releases on the top where it meets the windshield), then simply hit the button as described above. no need to push on the top during the beginning sequence. keep holding it until the windows begin to go back up, then release it.

for both, watch the top as it tucks into the boot. sometimes if the top is not properly aligned, the top cloth may not tuck correctly and may require some help from you. the sequence can be stopped any time, but the red light on this button will flash.

to put it back up, simply hit the button in the opposite manner and the sequence will start with the rear boot lifting up first. fully auto tops will lock automatically to the windshield. power assisted tops will require to lock the top. if red light on this button still flashes when released, then the sequence is not complete or has encountered an error.

hope this worked for you.

Soft top 97' problem


Open the trunk. Remove the material covering on the left hand side. You will see 2 electric motors(similiar to the ones that wind the windows). One motor open and closes the roof lid the other brings the roof up or down.

These motors can be engaged and disengaged manually. 

First check that the motor's are working. 

If the motors are working. 

Then engage and disengage until they are in sync and open and closes the roof in the correct order.

Please come to me for further assistance.
