Look for the micro switches that tell the car what position the top is in.l These tend to go bad and the car loses the location of the top. The switch that looks at the storage area is not telling the car it is already down.

The roof is not closing what do i do


As I'm sure that you'll appreciate, the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder Convertible is not a model that the overwhelming majority of folks on here will have ever seen, let alone have experience of.

Because your vehicle is a very rare and highly specialised model it requires an answer from a specialist. Any other advice may lead to very expensive damage and potentially a long wait for spare parts and repair. Respectfully, and with the greatest of regret, the only safe answer to your question is to contact an authorised Lamborghini dealer.

Sorry that this is not the answer you wished for, but I hope that it has still been of some assistance to you.

there should be a key in the glove box or in dash, insert in the centre of the roof near the windscreen and twist the roof will open then you need to lift the back part of the roof up and away from the boot then open roof storage compartment and push the roof down into place.

Audi 2005 A4 Cabrio...roof stuck partially down. How do I fix?


This has happened to my wife's 2004 A4 Convertible 2x's. I had to read the owner's manual several times to get the job done correctly (pages in the high 70's to low 80's) ...the following is offered from memory: The handle/tool needed to accomplish the task 'manually' is located in the fuse box on the LEFT SIDE of the dashboard. A small flat blade screwdriver will enable you to pry open the fuse cover & gain access to the handle/tool. Slight twist the tool and it comes out easily. Tool is a "T" shaped handle. Once you have the handle/tool IN HAND, simply turn the RED part (only) on the handle until it 'locks' in an open position. Leaves a small space on the handle. Can't recall if you go clockwise or counterclockwise, but it will be evident. Now...move both front seats forward and tilt them to gain access to rear seat. Remove the ski boot cover in middle of the rear seat and put aside. Then, 'click' the interior boot cover panel down to gain access to a 'hole' (about size of a 50 cent piece) in the top of the boot space. This hole allows you to insert (upward) the above mentioned tool into a lock/unlock mechanism in the rear deck just forward of the trunk. The tool needs to be jiggled to go 'all the way' in...you will sense that. Once in, TURN the RED part of the handle to "LOCK" the handle into the mechanism. The tool will hang down by itself. My approach is to 'store' the roof in the open convertible position first. The front portion of the roof should be partially forward as that appears to 'release' a lever within the roof's up/down mechanism to allow you to raise the rear window portion. Thus, lift (with that friend) the rear window portion up and forward (takes some effort). The roof now has a kind of 'clamshell' appearance front & rear. The front may even flop forward but tht's OK. This step exposes the rear deck. Twist the tool to unlock the rear deck. It should click & release and a small space appears enabling you to use hands (that friend again) under it (the deck). Lift the deck up & back until the hydraulics kick in and keep the deck vertically open. Now you are ready to tackle the roof & rear window for storage under the rear deck cover. Get a friend, if possible to help with the lifting...remember, this is a "Manual" job! Once here, gently push back & lower the rear window portion of the roof into the open storage area simultaneously followed by the remainder of the roof itself. Watch fingers for possible pinching in the levers, etc., during this part of operation Hopefully you now have the roof & rear window stored in the area in front of trunk and be able to lower the rear deck to almost closed position. If so, go back to the tool and twist it to 'lock' the deck in place with roof stored. Remove tool from the ski storage area by reversing procedure above. Now comes the "Moment of Truth"! With the ignition turned on and car running, use the roof switch to bring the stored roof up and all the way to the closed position. Don't forget you must keep your finger on that switch until the operation completely finishes. Then, reverse the process to open & store the roof for a good blow dry (drive)!

I went to put down my convertible top and it hit something in the back seat and now it is stuck. I had to manually put it down, the electrical part of it is still not working, Can anyone give me some...


I don,t understand how roof hit something in back seat
If roof is down you need to use special tool located end of driver side dash
Flip of plastic cover to see tool
Check owner manual how to use
The tool will locate between rear seat,this will close and lock rear cover
Make sure both sides of rear cover lock,get friend to press down
Once rear cover is locked down,remove tool,and check opperation
Make sure doors shut and windows down

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.
