Just as the weather looks to be picking up, my convertible roof stops working!

I can get it to the open sun roof stage, but then the red light flashes when I go for the full convertible open.

Any ideas why? It's never done it before.

Out of interest, it does it when the ignition is on, and half way on.

Thanks for that - I'm thinking I'll book it in to get it sorted and they'll take two minutes to put it right so it will be a wasted journey!

See people laugh at us having to pull over and do our roof by hand, but at least things like this don't happen :D.

Anyway, it seems broken, could anything be blocking it?


That's what I'm thinking - be a right pain to take it down to Mini only for them to pull sock out of the mechanism!
I've read it might have something to do with the parcel shelf but I have no idea what it should look like, or what position it should be in.

Does it pull back unevenly?, (like one side first?) If so, one of the cables has snapped. That happened to mine and cost £400.00 to repair:w00t:

No, it goes back to the sunroof stage no problem - then nothing. The red light flashes which I think indicates something but I can't remember what.

Tonight when I tried to open my roof - it sounded like it was moaning - then it stopped and the red light flashed. I closed it and tried again to reopen it and it appears to be off track and now will not close. Is anyone familar with this situation - any advisehttp://img.autoforums.com/site-styles/mini2.com/images/newsmilies/frown.gif




I picked up a new convertible last friday and had the same problem.
yuo need to check the microswitvhes in the boot. make sure shelf is in correct place - wiggle around the left hand lever in boot and listen to hear switch click. hopefully a few attempts should get you going.

Hello- JohnnyTwoToes-what happened with your roof in the end? Mines doing the exact same thing!
Thankyou

I cleared the boot out just to make sure nothing was touching the shelf and it seemed to work fine.
No problems since.
