Having problems with your 1996 BMW 318 ?
Tried to ppen the convertible top. It got halfway and stopped. Put the top back down. Tried to open it again and something cracked or snapped. Now the trunk won't open, but the lock on the trunk makes a whinning sound. I can only open the top now as far as I can push it after unlatching it. Thanks for any help you can provide.
Sounds as though the bowden cable may have snapped. pull the lever under the rear seat to disengage the motors in the boot to further investigate
