Question about 1997 BMW 328
When trying to open the convertible roof, there's a loud noise that comes from the trunk area, but roof won't open. Also can't open the trunk so I can't see what the problem is. Any suggestions???
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.
