This problem could be caused by a sensor being trapped or a fuse has blown, check your fuse box under the hood Identify the one for the roof system it may also be the same one for the boot lock.
the roof system is quite complex and has about 8 pumps or somthing to make it work.
if it is some other malfunction of the roof system I would recommend taking it to the dealership as any forcement of the roof may cause damage and become more costly than what VW will charge you on repair. if there is a large cost due to pump or other defect ask them to manually close the roof, at least you will not get wet and you can still drive your car. until you can get the repair made.

Hi When i try to open the roof (full - cabrio) i


I had the same problem and the solution is very simple. The 2 plastic pieces near the back seats which open widely (on the right and left from the seats) are stuck with the roof during the opening. All you have to do is gently push them out with your hand and the roof will open normally.

The trunk of my 2007 Eos convertible won't close


i havent ever had this problem but i'm familiar with the eos so i can say almost undoubtedly that the you have a bad trunk latch. there is a switch in the trunk latch that tells it if it's closed or open and i'm guessing that the switch is bad. once the switch tells the car that the trunk is closed, it runs the motor that close the trunk fully.

however, i say again that i've never had this problem on an eos so there is a fair amount of room for other issues. volkswagens are rather complicate and use a lot of different switches and such in the convertible top. also, the only way to know for sure is to bring your vehicle to the vw dealer becuase only the vw 5051 scan tool is capable of reading the inputs and outputs of the convertible top control module and this is what is required to properly diagnose the problem. don't waste your time throwing parts at it, the dealer should be able to give you a 100% positive diagnosis with one hours labor (about $90)

Trunk,backend of car stuck in up position


My 2007 EOS stops with the truck up in the air, going up or down, when the temperature is very hot. The manual says if the hydraulic fluid gets too hot, you must wait for it to cool. I find this unsatisfactory as I live in a very hot state. I had it in the shop several times, then found this in the manual, and took it in again last week; the service manager at the dealer says he has seen reports of this, but there is not solution that he knows of. I am contracting the National Headquarters this week, and then an attorney if they do not remedy it as I only have a few more months of warranty to work with them....hope this helps.

Convertible top will not retrack


Hi Stan

First of all the roof is not even soppose to operate while the trunk is open - So there is the first problem Ive been involved with BMW's for a long time and this is the first Ive heard of a roof opening while the trunk is open. There is a built in feature that tells the car not to open the roof if the trunk is open and the other way roung while the roog lid is open the trunk cant open.

The reason the roof is not working anymore as soon as there is stress on the roof the electric motors(One operates the roof and the other operates the roof lid)  disengages, You said that the roof still worked but the lid did not so probably only the one motor disengaged. So what you have to do is open the trunk on the left hand side right behind the tail light pull away the material and simply just push the electric motor into place. that should fix your problem.

It may happen that the two motors have become out of sync, Disengage both electric motors manualy put the roof away engage the motors and that should put the roof and lid back into sync.

Beamerguy.

Convertable roof and trunk won't open


The Roof Mechanism works with two motors similiar to the ones that wund the windows. Now the two mechanism are located in the left side of the trunk. 

The trunk wont open Because of the roof lid that is not closed properly. How you can test this is to press down on the right sid of the roof lid and then try to opne the trunk.

Now the reason that this is happening is that the roof lid is not closing properly nad pressing on a small orange buttin located just below the right hand side roof lid catch. How you are going to remedy this problem is to adjust the cable tension to close more securely.

Now the two motors in the trunk that works the convertable roof can be engaged and disengaged on motor works the roof lid and the other one the roof.

You need to get these motors in sync so that they open and close the roof in the correct order.

That is if the electric are still working.
