Having problems with your 2005 Mini Cooper ?

Convertible top will not retract

\015 I parked the car and put the top up on a 90 degree day and when I returned and tried to put the top down it would only retract, first phase, and when I press the button to lower the top the light blinks and nothing happens. Could this be heat related, an electrical problem or what.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 18-06-2018

Answers :

Do you know where are the two levers on left and right side when open the tailgate? The one you open to raise the soft top from behind?
Well, one of them is not close tight enough. Open it up and close it back. There should be small click from the sensor. Sometimes the sensor won't get engaged and it won't allow opening the top, assuming it's open from the other side.
