    Hi all,
    I have recently purchased a lovely E30 Cab, but stupidly took the sellers word for it that the hood worked (as it was snowing at both viewings). As the weather has now improved i have tried it and nothing seems to operate.Any tips??????

    You need to use a test light and check for power at the switch, fuses and motor plug.

    This is for the E36 roof but I would imagine most of the workings of the E30 will be the very similar....

    You can download the E30 general wiring diagrams from here...

    sounds like the motors gone, most people convert them to a manual roof.
