I just bought a 01 330ci. The roof will unlock from the windshield but will not open. I hear the motor in the rear of the car click to engage but nothing more. Any one else have this issue? The door/hing thing in the trunk is down.

Ok. I noticed the windows don't go down the couple inches either when trying to drop the top. Is that also a symptom of a wire being broke in the roof?

Reading the CVM codes will give you an answer. Find a friend with a laptop and PA Soft and you will have your answers.

However, if you hear clicking then that is another issue. I've read where the cover to the motor actually holds the gears in place. If you press down on the motor cover while someone operates the controls and it works, you know what needs to be fixed.
