This is so old, i'm guessing you probably fixed it by now. But anyway, I had the same problem. It started to occasionally happen after my battery died. When it did happen, I would let both windows up, then push the up button on the convertible top. The windows would go down, then the top goes up. Worked every time. Hope this helps.

How can i get bmw 323i convertible top down manualy


If your top is electric then you will need to release the front cowl motors at the center point of the trim in front of the rear view mirror(small access plug needs to be removed and allen key inserted to drive unit.) You also need to pull the release handle under the back seat bottom(driver's side) The release handle detaches the drive units for the storage lid cover and the convertible top drive. Once the motors are released, the front of the top must be lifted approximately 6 inches and the pressure against the rear of the top will relax. raise the rear bow, open the storage lid, lower the rear bow and push the front of the top up and toward the back of the car. The top should fold into the storage area. Once in, close the storage lid until it clicks.

How do I put the convertible top down ?


If you reach behind the headrest on the driver's side, you should feel a handle. Pull that handle to release pins from the rear deck lid. Then there is a small yellow button under the deck lid or you can use the slide switch located on either door to release the deck lid. Next you must unlatch the front by pulling on the handles located above each of the visors. Then, with the deck lid open, fold the top down into the cargo area and close the deck lid.
Hope this helps.

E36 BMW convertible top operating it manually


Hey there, I have experienced the same problem. You need to reengage both motors if you have disengaged them pulling the lever undernearth the rear driverside seat. Make sure to put the black lever back under the seat to the position before pulling on it.

You should have the top in the down position before engaging the motors back in place.

To engage the motors: The motors are located under the carpet in the trunk on the driver side. There are two black clips you will need to remove in order to pull the carpet back. One of the motors is located near the taillight. This motor is responsible for the storage lid cover. The motor that is located further in the drunk is the motor for the fabric top to move up and down. Make sure to firmly press these motors back into place. They should not move.

Once you have engaged the motors, go into your car put the key into the ignition and have the convertible top button pressed up (meaning to close the top), move the key to the accessory positio and hold it for 10-12 seconds. You will finally see the trunk lid get pulled closed. The car will now attempt to completely close the lid. If your motors are working fine it will close. If your only intention is to get the lid to close on it's own it should be accomplished.

Good luck!

Vw convertable top


There are two strings in your top...they are red I believe...look down inside the sides of the top...pull them up to release the tension on the top....then open your trunk lid and on the left side there is a little switch turn it counter clockwise then you should be able to release your top and put it up manually....then latch it into place...then go back to your trunk and turn the switch back....it should work fine

Convertible top won't go down on my 1998 bmw 323ic


Sounds like the sensor has faulted or the pump has become disengaged. Usually when the light is flashing it's a sensor. You can check for a pinched line or low fluid also. There is a manual lock overide procedure to get the windows up, it's in you owners manual.
Good luck...i hope this helps,

BMW 328i 97 top will not go down , weird thumping sound


1st Scenario
The noise you are decribing can be from the driving gear from one of the electric motors could be worn down in which case you will have to get it replaced the best place to get a cheap second hand one is at a scrap yard.

2nd Scenario
If the trunk still wont open then the loose cable you are describing has snapped you will know witch cable because if the roof lid is open check for a button on one of the right lid catch which tells the car the roof lid is now closed and secure so the trunk is now allowd to open. If this is the case replace the cable.

To alastair bda if this does not solve your problem I have sent you an e-mail with further questions to investigate your noise problem. I will be waiting on your reply.

Trunk won't open


If you open the roof lid and look at the lid catch on button side all you have to do is adjust the cable tighter so that when the catch goes down it engages the button. You can do this by turning the nut on the adjuster. The adjuster is located just under the catch on the cable leadeing to the motors
