Convertible top is stuck open


The motor might be bound up or a release for the top is not opening. Hopefully the drive gears for the top are not stripped out.

HEY GUYS MY 97 328I CONVERTIBLE WONT OPEN OR CLOSE THE TOP, AS RIGHT NOW IT IS IN CLOSE POSSITION BUT THE LIGHT KEEP ON BLINKING, i DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO ANY MORE COULD ANY BODY HELP ME?


Turn on the radio so the battery is engaged, or turn on the engine.

  • 2 Fold down the cargo partition in the trunk and lock it on both sides. If the cargo partition is not down, there will be no place in the trunk to store the convertible top.
  • 3 Press the convertible button forward to open the top. It's located under the circular control button on the consul. The button has a picture of a window with one arrow pointing up and another pointing down.
  • 4 Pull the convertible button backward to close the top.
  • 5 Use your key to open or close the top when you are outside of the BMW but still close to it. Press and hold the arrow button on top of your key to open the top. To close the top, press and hold the Lock button. The car does not need to be turned on to operate the top with the key.

    Convertable top not working motor is running but does not seem strong enough is there a way to overide the motor and open and close top manually


    Open the pump bypass valve for the top to manually open/close top. Bypass valve is located in trunk on left; remove round 2" cover and turn the exposed valve anti-clockwise.
    Problem of motor not moving top is likely low on pump oil. Remove cover on left in trunk and refill slowly after removing the fill plug on top of pump. Use 10w30 oil.

    2007 Mini Cooper Convertible top doesn't open all the way when I push the button.


    The top down function is a two step process...1- hold button until sunroof is all the way open then release button. 2- Press and hold button again until top goes all the way down.

    If you try this and it still doesn't work , note the light on the button. If it's flashing it indicates a fault... most likely an obstruction. Check that latches on rear cargo shelf are firmly latched. Check that parcel shelf is firmly down. (open and firmly close all three of these things and try again)

    Convertible top will not close /open


    I have had this problem with my 2005 S4 Cab - sometimes the top will not latch. I have found that this was because the fabric near the rear passenger window was not folding into place over the steel structure. I just back up the top and made sure the fabric unfolded and all was well.

    I rented a 2009 sebring convertible but it has no owners amnual. How do I put the soft top down?


    There should be a button on both the dash and your key fob that you can push to automatically put the top down. Make sure the 'top holder' is open and ready in the trunk before you push the button.

    Lowering convertible top


    There should be latches you have to pull first to unlock the top from the windshield. Pull down the sun visors, the handles should be under them. Then push the power top switch.

    Convertible top will not retrack


    Hi Stan

    First of all the roof is not even soppose to operate while the trunk is open - So there is the first problem Ive been involved with BMW's for a long time and this is the first Ive heard of a roof opening while the trunk is open. There is a built in feature that tells the car not to open the roof if the trunk is open and the other way roung while the roog lid is open the trunk cant open.

    The reason the roof is not working anymore as soon as there is stress on the roof the electric motors(One operates the roof and the other operates the roof lid)  disengages, You said that the roof still worked but the lid did not so probably only the one motor disengaged. So what you have to do is open the trunk on the left hand side right behind the tail light pull away the material and simply just push the electric motor into place. that should fix your problem.

    It may happen that the two motors have become out of sync, Disengage both electric motors manualy put the roof away engage the motors and that should put the roof and lid back into sync.

    How to raise and lower the 328ci convertible top manually


    I just bought a 1996 328iC (the "C" is for convertible). I bought the car with the knowledge that the roof needed a motor replacement (~$300 for the part alone + ~1-2 hours labor) and that I would need to open and close the roof manually if I wanted to take advantage of the convertible part of the car.

    After some trial and error, I figured it out and now it takes me <30 seconds to open or close the top (manually). Note: my top is a semi-electric roof, which I think is what came on the 328iC, you have to lock into place after you close it.

    Here's what you do:
    1- open all of the windows
    2- unlock the roof by turning the latch between the sun visors.
    3- push the front of the roof towards the rear of the car - be sure to push in the middle of the roof, where the latch is.
    4- lift the back of the roof up off of the roof storage compartment
    5- while holding the back of the of the roof up, lift up the roof storage compartment door
    6- let go of the back of the roof so that it drops right into the storage compartment
    7- push the rest of the roof into the storage compartment
    8- close the storage compartment door.

    To close the roof, follow the steps above in reverse order. Remember: this is a German car, so you use a little bit (or a lot) of force and you won't hurt it (I think it actually likes it ;-D ).

    Good Luck!!!
