I recently spun my 94' 325I convertible in the wet, and no damage was done to the car. But as the car came to a stop it slid into the ditch, and was siting at about a 45 degree angle...the roll bars poped up and now they are pushing up aganst the rear window. Is there any way I can rectract them myself or am I going to have to take it to the dealership?

If you have your owners manual, there are detailed instructions in there!

success!....It was an easy fix, I dont have the owners manual, I have one of thoes haynes repair manuals, So I kinda just examined the whole system and it is quite simple, just spring loaded rods, and a sort of ratchiting system that you just have to pull out of the way and slide it down, I used a flat screwdriver and a metal ruler. thanks for your coments.
