often times this problem ends up needing a front sunroof section of the conv top replaced. The cable that drives the hooks to unlatch is most likely broken and that is currently the only fix. EXPENSIVE. Sorry

Talk to your dealer, they should make a claim to MINI. Just look on google, you are not the first with this problem. In many cases MINI has covered the labour and sometimes the parts. Find as many simular problems as you can on the internet (www.mini2.com, www.northamericanmotoring.com) and print these and take them with you to your dealer.
It should cost you not more than $400

You should be able to close it manually. That info should be in your owners manual. If you don't have the manual, you should be able to access it for free at the below site, after registering. Sorry I couldn't access that information, but you need a vin or production # to sign into the site.

Go to a Mini main dealership with proof that you own the vehicle. Also take along the servicing record. Using the VIN chassis number on the vehicle (and also in the service book) the dealer can look up the radio code for you but they may charge a fee. Most main dealers will give it to you for free if you ask nicely or are having any other work done on the car by them.
I'm puzzled by one thing though: a 2007 Cooper should still have been under the manufacturer's warranty, so a duff gearbox would be replaced by a Mini dealer. Part of the job would be to re-input the radio code. If this is what's happened and they couldn't provide you with the code I'd complain vociferously and get it fixed elsewhere in future.
