    Hi Guys The top storage cover is not fully closing because some of the hood material does not fully detract into the storage area. Some of the material rests on the back behind the rear headrests and, consequently, the top cover does not fit snuggly down. Is there any adjustment that would...

    Yesterday, when I was opening the hood, I heard a cracking noise when I pulled the lever (that plastic handle inside the cabin), but the hood opened. I removed the nut and figured out that the teeth inside the lever are broken, but the cable was good inside the car. Later I closed the hood...

    Yesterday, I hit another car with the front/left side of my car - a woman jumped right in front of me and I hit her right side of the car. The speed was ~20-25mph, so the collision wasn't that bad - front bumper damaged, left headlight scratched and the hood is also damaged (bent a little and...

    Just thought i would share my experience with the issue with my convertible roof not working. Two weeks ago when we went to close the hood it did about a third of the travel and then stopped, i did manage to move it back towards open slightly but then it completely became unresponsive...

    I have recently purchased a 1992 320i convertible and the electric roof won't operate. I knew this before buying it. Someone has obviously tried to do some work on it but given up. My last one (1989 model) had manual roof and this presented no problems at all. I see that I can manually fold the...

    Hi, I have been offered a 98 E36 soft top which is in excellent condition, except that the power hood doesn't work!
