Trunk and hood manual latch won't work


That is not the problem the problem is your convertable roof is not closing properly to test this let someone press down on the roof lid and then try to open the trunk, To fix this let the roof lid open and let the roof come up until the back part stands up to let the roof lid close so that the roof hold is exposed look on the right hand side of the car (if your standing at the back) under the roof lid catch there is a small plastic buttun that the roof lid catch needs to pres down on, this tells the car that the roof lid is seucre and it is now safe to let open the trunk, All you have to do is set the tension on the cable for that roof lid catch and the problem is sorted.

Convertable roof and trunk won't open


The Roof Mechanism works with two motors similiar to the ones that wund the windows. Now the two mechanism are located in the left side of the trunk. 

The trunk wont open Because of the roof lid that is not closed properly. How you can test this is to press down on the right sid of the roof lid and then try to opne the trunk.

Now the reason that this is happening is that the roof lid is not closing properly nad pressing on a small orange buttin located just below the right hand side roof lid catch. How you are going to remedy this problem is to adjust the cable tension to close more securely.

Now the two motors in the trunk that works the convertable roof can be engaged and disengaged on motor works the roof lid and the other one the roof.

You need to get these motors in sync so that they open and close the roof in the correct order.

That is if the electric are still working.

My S Reg 323i electric roof.


Ive had the same problem on my car. If you open the trunk and pull away the material covering on the left hand side you will find two electric motors similar to the ones that winds the windows these motors have to be in exact sync for the whole system to work fine.

The one drives the lid and the other one drives the roof. You can engage and disengage the motors to get the roof in sync and working perfectly. Also check that when the lid closes it engages a button on the left that allowes the roof to close aver the lid after the lid has closed this button also tells the car that the roof lid is closed and it is ok to let the trunk be opened.

I also suggest that you treat the roof mechanism with some penetrating oil.

Auto roof stuck


It happened to mine as well. When I took it to the dealership, they explained that if the top is interrupted while opening or closing (sometimes unintentionally our finger may slip off and stop the process for a brief time) the top can get out of synch and needs to be reset. They did some type of fuse reset and then it worked fine.
