    HI all i have just bought myself a e36 m3 and have had it for a few weeks and it great apart from today i tried to put the roof down and it went to the first stage where it lift up from the front and also the back lid lifted up and thats all i got the led on the switch to put it up and down inside the car is continusly flashing but cant hear any motors or any movement in the roof trying to go up and down and the windows went down half way and nothing else. can any body help me please as am really stuck and feel really gutted about this.

    I have managed to put the roof up manauly by pulling the em lever and allen key to lock above the windscreen and have engaged the motors. i did try the re sync procedure but nothing and the led on the switch is still flashing.

    Any help would be great. i am in the birmingham area so if anybody knows any speacilist please advise me of them.

    Try the fuse located by the battery in the boot, also check the bars under the cover and ensure they are fixed and not lose mate

    If it's sticking where I think you mean, I sometimes have to "help" mine get over this point TBH. First the front unlocks and lifts a bit, then the rear and the horseshoe piece comes up before the roof starts to fold into the space - at this point sometimes mine seems to stick a bit but using my right hand over my head while my left is still on the switch I can push it back and hear a "click" as it folds the roof mechanism up and then it's all ok again...
