    you have released the motors that power the roof, you will need to push them back into place, before it will do anything, remove the carpet in the boot both left and right hand side and you sould be able to see the motors, push them up so they are locked back in, am not great on this and am sure someone with more of an idea will help, but that should get you started, what was the problem?
