Question about BMW Z4
Hi this is how to do it In the luggage compartment on the left-hand side below the convertible top compartment floor, pull out the plastic ring attached to a Bowden cable as far as it will go with a 90-degree turn, lock the plastic handle in this position In the hydraulic unit, a short circuit is enabled, making it possible to open and close the folding top by hand Pull the handle of the Bowden cable in the rear panel of the luggage compartment the interlock in the convertible top compartment is released move the top forwards by hand until it reaches the cowl panel take the Allen key from the on-board tool kit remove the plastic panel from the front roof brace Insert the Allen key in the uncovered internal hexagon
lock and unlock the cowl panel lock by turning the Allen key
take out and replace the Allen key and that should be it lock closed then, this sounds like you might have a hydraulic unit fault i would get it checked out soon as, as this could also damage other parts and put a strain on things if not looked at....hope this helps please rate and vote thanks

I'm sorry to say that it sounds like your motor on the hood has packed up, this is usually due to water ingress and is not easy to repair. There are some drain holes in the area of the motor and these tend to clog with dirt etc this results in the motor getting wet and results in the problem you have explained I have had the same problem with my Z4 and this was fixed by BMW as apparently they have to re-align the roof although there are several forums with people who have done it themselves and report it take about 5 hours
There is a manual release in the boot that will allow you to move the roof up and down. If you open the boot and look along the top edge you will see a red tab. Pull this out 5mm and twist so it doesn
