Check to see if there is an obstruction in the trunk that is not allowing the top to recess or if the trunk is not completely closed.

Assuming you have a 1996 328i convertible based on your photo as there were no US 96 328is.
It is located at the left front end of the the engine cylinder head under the plastic cover behind the VANOS solenoid next to the top of the oil filter housing. In addition to the new sensor, you will need new metal o-rings for the VANOS line, a new rubber o-ring for the camshaft sensor and perhaps a new socket head cap screw if you round out the internal hex trying to loosen this Loctited screw.
See Figures 1 & 3 at the following Pelican Parts link.

Try adjusting the ''brake'' Its used to keep the window from moving around when your not making it. The motor may be too weak to over-ride the brake. Hope this helps.

1996 bmw 328i convertible top won't open


The top works with two circular motors in the trunk. The motors are similar to the ones that open and close the windows. The motors of the roof can be engaged and disengaged. One motor drives the roof lid the other one drives the roof itself. The trick to engage and disengage the motors so that they are correctly syncronized to opening and closing.
