Z4 roof problem. Not motor

Hi all,

Recently I have been having trouble with my Z4 roof. One day ages weeks ago, during mid operation the roof froze but then continued to move. I then put the roof back up but after a while red operation light began flashing. I couldn't then put the roof down. However, if I manually undo the roof using the Allen key, the roof will retract and continue to full operation. Equally, the roof will then successfully close and latch on and then light will go out. The light will then begin flashing after a while.

I have had the rear motor refurbished and relocated and also replaced the roof control module. After reading a previous thread from 2009 showing exactly the same symptoms, I think my problem may be to do with a micros witch. However. In the thread listed below, I cannot understand which micro switch was damaged and got replaced.


If anyone could point in the right direction as to which microswitch this may be I would really appreciate it.
