This sun roof part works but the main roof will not.

    I have the same problem on my '06. One day, the top simply refused to go all the way down. No funny noises, the latches in the back are closed, nothing in the way as far as I can see. What gives?

    what is not working, do the hooks unhook? does the hydrolic pump run? what problem are you experiencing with the top?

Make sure that the microswitches in the rear trunk are all depressed. There is one where the parcel shelf (the cover that covers the view of the trunk from the outside) sits on the left that is usually the problem make sure that it is sitting on the microswitch (pull down on the closest side to you so it pivots forward and sits on the microswitch. Then make sure that the latch on the left side (drivers side) of the rear that allows easier access to the trunk switches the microswitch there. now close the trunk and try the conv top. the parcel shelf, the rear access latch and i think the trunk switches need to be depressed for the top to work. I know at least the first two.

Hi my mini convertible roof it not working . hooks will not lift

If the hooks unlock on one side and not the other the cable that pulls the hooks is broken on one side. This requires the front section of the convertible top to be replaced. Unfortunately there is no way to fix the cable that connects to the hooks.

I have a 2004 mini cooper convertible. The roof opens to half way and will then flash red if i want it ti close all the way, All windows shut initally, but now when closing the roof the driver side rear...

I am not sure what you are trying to do. But if the problem is that the roof will only open to the first stage, sun roof, and no further, the problem is the package shelf in the trunk.

If the package lid gets pushed up and is not pushed back to it's normal position, the roof will fail to open completely. If you lift the bottom of the roof at the boot, there are levers on either side to release the bottom edge of the roof, you can make certain that the package shelf is seated correctly. Once the shelf is seated, the roof will open in all of it's glory.

I borroweD this mini cooper convertible and can't figure out how to get the top down

The car must be stopped before the top will go down. Simply press ahd hold the button just above the rear-view mirror. If you are out of the car you can use the key just hold the unlock button and the windows will go down and top will open to the "sun roof" position...release the button and press and hold again to finish lowering the top.

Can not open my mini cooper roof all the way

Have you checked the parcel shelf is seated properly as there are micro switches beneath it so the car knows it will not jam the roof as it is lowered?
