Ive had the same problem on my car. If you open the trunk and pull away the material covering on the left hand side you will find two electric motors similar to the ones that winds the windows these motors have to be in exact sync for the whole system to work fine.

The one drives the lid and the other one drives the roof. You can engage and disengage the motors to get the roof in sync and working perfectly. Also check that when the lid closes it engages a button on the left that allowes the roof to close aver the lid after the lid has closed this button also tells the car that the roof lid is closed and it is ok to let the trunk be opened.

I also suggest that you treat the roof mechanism with some penetrating oil.

Battery dead. how can I get trunk open.


You can't unless it has a key hole. If you put jump leads on the battery or connect a battery charger it will open straight away.

I have a mini one convertible and i dnt no how to put the roof down can anyone help!!!!!!


No handbook??? The most important thing is that in the luggage compartment/boot/trunk there is a lever on each side. These operate a storage area for the roof to go into and when you want a larger boot space then these levers raise this area. Try operating the levers first.

2001 vw cabrio convertible top won't go up or down


Am I correct in assuming that you have an electric roof? I recently saw in my manual that there is a hydraulic lift that you can access from the trunk of the car. It looks like it is on the left side wall close to the opening. The following is taken directly from the manual:
"If the power system is not operating properly you can still close the roof by hand. 1. Remove protective cover and open luggage compartment lid. 2. Turn screw on hydraulic pump counterclockwise until it stops. 3. Close the luggage compartment lid. 4. Swing the top forward by grabbing it with both hands, lift and push it forward. 5. Lock roof in place. 6. Turn the screw on hydraulic pump clockwise until it stops. Use the same procedure in reverse order to open the power roof manually."
