Check the electric motors at that are located underneath the fabric in the trunk of the car. One is behind the left tail light the other underneath the roof hold.

First open them up if the gears are exposed it means that they are not engaged. To re engage simply push them back into place.

Before re engaging manually bring up the roof and then press the roof sequence button.

To make sure that the roof electric motors are functioning before re engaging let someone press the button and check that the gears move, While disengaged they will only move for about 5 to 10 seconds.

Try adjusting the ''brake'' Its used to keep the window from moving around when your not making it. The motor may be too weak to over-ride the brake. Hope this helps.

My 1997 bmw 328i wont star after I replace the battery


I can't quite follow your post, but it sounds like you set off the car alarm. Lock and unlock your doors with the key Fob to reset it.

I've replaced the battery several times in my 328 without such a problem.

Some possibilities:
- Ultraviolet damage from the sun (many synthetics will last forever if not exposed to UV)
- Cigarette smoke. - Hair spray. 
Look for a shop that does auto reupholstery; they should have the necessary means to replace the disintegrating stitching.
