I got following problem with the roof of my 1993 E30 convertible.

I got my roof stuck because of a sequencing error, after which I had to close my roof manually (which involved diengaging the drives etc....)

Now having engaged the drives again and the roof operating correctly, I got following problems:

When I push the button to open the roof, it folds away nicely to the point where the lid that covers up the folded roof goes down. However the two scissor shaped clamps at the front, which are meant to pull down the lid for the last bit and lock the lid, never start to pull down.

I think that it might be a problem of setting the start and stop points of the roof motor, but am not entirely sure.

Has anyone ever had the same or a similar problem.

Cheers for any help
