Ragtop help

I have a fully auto top that just won't go down. When I push the button the windows go down about half way then stop. The first motor won't activate but I know both the rear ones do. I've tried the manual reset and have checked all the fuses. Any suggestions? How would I test the front motor?

Rag top

sorry I am only familiar with the semi auto top but I just read in the Bentley manual that you can take the center cover of and that you will see 3 adjusting bolts and an emergency hex key for manual operation. You should get the Bentley manual, the section on the rag top is quite extensive
good luck
