The car must be stopped before the top will go down. Simply press ahd hold the button just above the rear-view mirror. If you are out of the car you can use the key just hold the unlock button and the windows will go down and top will open to the "sun roof" position...release the button and press and hold again to finish lowering the top.

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

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.

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

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

2004 Mini cooper convertible roof


Make sure that the microswitches in the rear trunk are all depressed. There is one where the parcel shelf (the cover that covers the view of the trunk from the outside) sits on the left that is usually the problem make sure that it is sitting on the microswitch (pull down on the closest side to you so it pivots forward and sits on the microswitch. Then make sure that the latch on the left side (drivers side) of the rear that allows easier access to the trunk switches the microswitch there. now close the trunk and try the conv top. the parcel shelf, the rear access latch and i think the trunk switches need to be depressed for the top to work. I know at least the first two.
