Hi all, tried to open my roof yesterday it unlocked at the front but wouldn't actual move / open. It is open in that i can push the roof up, only an inch if that as dont want to g=break it but shows it is unlatched. The motor runs then the dash says check manual, well that's joke as there's nothing in it to help. Turn engine off, and on again, and it the latches and locks, tries again several times same issue

I have checked the boot shelf is down, and nothing in the way in the wells etc. Any ideas. Been googling but cant see anything much at all. Is there a hydraulic level perhaps that needs toping up.... Any ideas.

Hope someone can help to save paying BMW from what is hopefully a small issue. thanks

roof opens but wont retract

thanks for the reply, yes windows come down, roof completely unlatches so I can push it up if wanted it just wont retract, I wonder if it is the hydraulic fluid, but cant see where the tank is and can find no reference to a tank or fluid anywhere

Not sure if this will help... you can go to the main page for your specific model.

Hi , have you sorted this ? As the same thing happened to me last year so I had the hydraulic fluid topped up and gave the boot a good hoover and wiped the sensors ect and it worked , left it until yesterday and the same thing , in ups at the front but nothing after that , so did the same topped up fluid , hoovered boot and roof lining next to rear headrests and boom worked fine again just letting you know to try and save a kidney
