SOURCE: the top on my 2005 mini cooper s will not go down .

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

SOURCE: The electric sunroof on my 2006 mini cooper s

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.

SOURCE: i had a reconditioned gear box in my mini cooper

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.

Mini cooper 2005 convertible top wont retract on passengers side


take the cover off the arm on the conv. and you'll most likely see a broken retractor arm. If you pull both sides off you'll see how the functional one works and how the other isn't working properly. With a little ingenuity, you'll be able to patch it and get it working.

2007 Mini Cooper convertable top will go to sunroof mode then stops will not go all the way down


Does the light start blinking when it stops? If it does it could be because the back piece in the trunk is not sitting correctly. There is a small latch that it needs to sit on and press down. If it is not sitting properly the roof will not open. I believe it is on the left hand side and it is very small and unnoticeable but that might be what is wrong

My 2005 mini coopers convertible top will go back to the sunroof position. It will not go any further. When I press the button for it to go back the rest of the way a red light flashes on the controls. ...


sounds like the motor is going out or the track is getting stuck somewhere. you can try winding manually . call mini or bmw and they can walk you through it or give me year/make/model and i will try to walk you through.

Hi, When i press the button to open the electric (convertable) roof it only starts to open on the left side, the right side is not even responding... Do you have any idea why or how this is...


More than likely the cable on the inside of the right mechanism snapped. To repair it, the entire mechanism needs replaced to the tune of upwards of $3000 USD. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. And even worse is there is no real way to check it without pulling the mechanism apart. I hope you find this information useful. You may wish to stalk the junkyards for one out of a junker. You can probably hook one of those up for about $300.00. You may also wish to look for the lift mechanism. Here is a place that has both, pretty reasonably priced. They could also help you to pinpoint the problem better based on you actual experience.

Mini windows open on own my 2005 mini one windows and sunroof open on their own when parked. happened a few times now. don't think it's the fob. help!


Could it be that you are doing this? Mini has a feature where if you hold down the unlock button on the key for a few seconds the windows will drop...and a few more seconds the sunroof opens.

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)


cheers
