This will happen to me once in a while, but all I have to do is give the top a push up and it'll start moving. But I'm sure you've already tried that solution .... good luck

My rear passenger door won't shut because the child lock is stuck in place. it was on and when i tried flipping it down it got stuck and will not budge. what do i do?


Sounds like the latch closed on you. Make sure the door is unlocked, then pull up on the outer door handle, take a small screw driver to reach into the latch to pop it open. the door should then close normally.

You can look at the front doors latch to see what it is supposed to look like first, it may help.

Other wise you will have to replace the door latch, witch is a fairly common problem on those. And not much fun to do.

How does a manual top work on a 1998 BMW 323 I??


I believe you do this in this order. Roll windows down, release the latch at the top of the windshield, raise the front of the top, release rear cover by pulling the latch near the rear seat, Pull up the back of the top and then pull up on the rear cover. The back of the top should now fit into the opening under the rear cover. Continue to fold the top into this space. Push down on the rear cover to lock (won't be able to open trunk if not engaged.) To raise it, release rear latch cover, open rear cover and pull top out of opening. Raise rear of top so you are able to now close the rear cover, set rear of top down on cover and then pull fron of top down and engage the fraont latch. Hoe that helps.

Hi, The center console latch is stuck on my BMW X5 2001. any idea how to get it unstuck?


No idea but jeremy clarkson of top gear even took one to australia to try it upside down and didnt stick ,but in your case i would assume that something plastic has broke inside the catch and no doubt the only way is renew it ,but you need to open it first and for this then a big screwdriver and wrench it open

BMW roof is stuck closed with only one latch hooked!


There is a compartment on the top center of the windshield. This contains a bolt that released the latches that lock the top to the windshield. It takes an allen wrench to unwind the roof latch and it takes an infinite amount of turns.

My BMW x3 2005 back door will not close. The latch doesnt seem to catch. We tried locking and unlocking the doors you can hear the mechanism working but latch is catching. Lock/latch seems to just spin...



Hold down the "open" button on your remote and simultaneosly pull the inside handle of that door open. I just had the issue with my driver's door and as my son tried to "help" (he's 9), one of the passenger doors also got stuck! After not finding a non-tech response, played around some until the the dran latch obliged on the front door. Repeated on passenger door and whew! :-)

I can't seem to get the convertible top to do anything when the handle is pulled to release it where does it stow and how does it operate at all, it is manual on a 1994 BMW 318I


You should purchase a manual from the folks at Bavarian. It's not that expensive. I have the same model. There are a number of steps to get the top down. You need to make sure windows, key, etc. are in a certain position. You need to pull the back of the top up before the front will move. There is a manual latch behind the driver's side, etc. etc.... get a manual.

Letting the top down


I had the same problem for four years until I purchased a CD from Ebay titled "BMW E30 Convertible". I discovered, that I was opening the top up incorrectly. The top works fine. Unlatch the top from the windshield frame, then lift up the back half of the top, unlatch the top lid, rise it up and lower the top into the compartment, close and latch the soft top lid. Hopes this helps.
