SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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

Vauxhall astra twintop with fault codes B36BB and B36BA right hand boot lid sensor where are they


Many electrical faults on the Twintop are caused by the wiring loom breaking inside its sheath. The weak spot on any folding roof system from any manufacturer will be those components which fold, bend or twist when the roof operates. Alfa Spiders blow hydraulic hoses because of this. I would suggest you look at those part of the wiring loom which are taped to the boot hinges. Cut back the outer sheath and peel it away then check the actual cables for electrical continuity. If you cannot find anything I suggest calling a mobile professional auto-electrician. He will have specialist gear for finding breaks in wiring.

Holden tigra roof wont open, Windows go down, Boot retracts, Back Dashboard goes up then it just stops an the roof wont open, Does anyone have any idea why this could be happening


You need to pump the hydraulics manually, to do this first sit on boot and press boot button for a few seconds without allowing the boot to open. Partially allow boot to open, manually push boot all the way open and closed a dozen or so times to manually pump hydraulics. I had same prob, this sounds extreme but does work and wont cost you a penny.

My trunk will not open on my wife's 2001 slk Mercedes. It's not locked. I think something is stuck in the lock. Can you help me?


your can check is it something stuck in the lock, first operate your roof either way, if you are going to open the roof as a first action boot lid will open to backward, let boot lid fully open and stop operating the roof, ignition off and have a look if something stuck you can see, if you are going to close the roof let close the roof and before close the boot lid stop operating roof switch, otherwise faulty boot lid lock, if faulty lock but you can try by mettle key blade which is in your electronic key, first take out mettle key from electronic key then insert mettle key in to the key hole in boot lid turn fully left and open boot if not work turn fully left and push it in, is this information helped you?

My slk 2000 roof has just stopped working. It wont go down at al


Sounds like maybe some pin switches for interlocks have gone bad. Open your trunk and look for the rubber booted switches and try holding them or shorting them, if you make the top move it shows you which ones are bad.

My 1999 slk's roof wont go down it gets as far as the boot lid opning then it stops you can still hear the pump and motor but the roof dont go down, but then sometimes it works just fine, (when its...


This symptom almost always points to a mechanical issue, not an electrical one. The SLK hardtop is notorious for needing to be lubricated every couple of years. Here is a link with directions and photos:

http://www.benzworld.org/forums/r170-slk-class/1426014-lubing-vario-roof-pics-1-krytox.html

Sticking joints are the most common culprit to intermittent raising and lowering problems. Once those have been lubricated and that has been checked off the list, then consider looking into electrical issues.

The moisture from the rain may be helping to lubricate these joints and that might be why it works fine in the rain...
