450 Cabrio roof stuck shut

2 posts in this topic

Hey guys i hope you can help.

I had an issue withe cabrio roof on my 2003 450.  Some bits of plastic seem to have broken off (kids were operating it), but i managed to get it to close normally using the motors.  But now it wont open - the motors run smoothly, but the roof is locked shut.  It seems like the cables have detached at the front where they join to the roof.  I know its possible to replace the cables, but as the roof is latched shut at the top of the windshield i cant release it.

Any ideas:

1. how can i release it?

2. what might be broken?


Hope someone has a suggestion as i am stumped!

the 2 roof motors must be removed
you can hang it out with a screwdriver at the front
you can push the roof back by hand
i don't speak english well, sorry
