Hi can't open boot due to roof not working and cannot close the roof at the back catch because u need to turn Allen key bolt to lock it manually which is in the boot can u help please
Hello, One thing is, you never mentioned was when the top stopped working in the first place (i.e. did the car battery die, the nit stopped working, out of the blue, etc.. etc..).
That information could be very helpful in diagnosing the problem.
You may already know this, but someone else reading this info may not, so hopefully it's useful to someone.
The windows need to be working properly and be normalized for the top to function. If you have a specific window that is not working, fix that window first.
Do this to "normalize" the windows:
Press power window switch and roll the window up/down (depending upon where it is when you start) until the window is either completely closed/open and when it reaches the fully opened or closed position keep holding the button for an additional 2-4 seconds. Repeat procedure in both directions up/down for each window. After this point the auto up/down features should be working.
If they won't go up at all after power loss, try this:
If windows won't go up after loss of electrical power. Make certain trunk and all doors are closed. Stand outside by driver's window. Use the key remote to lock car. All windows should go up.
If this doesn't get your top to move, I would hold/press the rollbar button up for 20 to 30 seconds and then down for 20 to 30 seconds. Once the rollbar is put back down, the top should start working again.
If it still doesn't work, I would get some WD-40 or some equivalent penetrating oil and oil where the rear key goes in on the boot/trunk lid and try it again. Sometimes these get stuck and the WD-40 will get them moving again.
Hope this helps and if it doesn't please post back what happens, so I can try to help.
