My Vauxhall Astra 2005 convertible roof has a fault sometimes it works and then it half opens then sticks unless I push it a bit then it carries on opening.


Carefully lubricate the joints for your convertible roof. Try not to get it on the roof material. Let the lubrication sit for 30 minutes or so.

Let us know if it helped.
Good luck.

2010 hhr sunroof opens all the way but only closes half way.


If the motor runs in both directions, it's not a bad motor because it moves in both directions.
Just for fun lightly spray silicone lube all along the track when the roof is all the way open. It is easier for the motor to pull the roof open than it is to push the roof closed.
After that I would say it's sensor related.

DB9 roof failure


Could be failed motor, water gets in around that area and can't escape. Begins to corrode worm gear.
Sometimes the ambient temp sensor can interfere with opening roof, like give false readings then locks roof thinking it's too hot or cold.
As an emergency, you can close roof manually (see in your manual for instructions) all the tools you need are in the cars toolkit.
Resetting the windows can sometimes fix it and check the fuses. It's not uncommon for these cars to leave showroom with some incorrect fuses.

Sunroof opens on its own, when driving, just opens about 10th of an inch, you can push on it and it lifts also


it sounds as though the actual glass roof section has come loose from the frame that allows the roof to slide back and forth , try opening the roof half way and see if there are any securing screws/bolts from the glass roof edge to the frame , i've tried to get a schematic but have'nt found one yet , will forward one when i do , hope this helps

Chrysler sebring roof wont open


Look under the back seat to see if there is any oil . Sometimes the hydrolic rams that move the top will leak fluid. If there is oil refill the fluid may help get the top open, but the ram will need to be replaced.

On my 1998 mercedes benz sl600 i cant get the convertable top to open. i have replaced two of the struts for the roof and now my roof wont open. is there a way to resync the roof or am i just doing so


The top is controlled by you guessed it a computer module, have the dealer test that with a scan tool. The top is very complex in the control end, not simple like the old Mustangs I used to fix

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.

Electric windows are fine the roof gets half way


If the top is half way down that means that the trunk is open and should be touching the trunk switch to continue the process. The switch must be bad and it is inside the rear right fender close the the stop light

Mini Roof


yes i had the same problem with our mini Up until i found that in the boot there are two lever one on either side. The left side,has two little switches to allow the sunroof to open and close,so if the lever does NOT touch the switch the roof wont fully work or will open half of your roof and the red light will stiil flash.. as soon as you touch those buttons on the left side of the boot it will open.........RIGHT BEHIND THE LEVER NOT EASY TO SEE GOOD LUCK....

Roof stuck half open.


There's a hidden side pannel that you pry open. It's located on the drivers side of the side-dash. Basically open the drivers side door and try to pry open the side of the dash console. It's right inside there with all the fuses and things.
