Give her a try... push, pull, have your father push while you press the button... not really hard.. but give it a little push.. it might work.. somtimes things need help ....

Good Luck

Can you remove the roof cover? from inside I mean, we'll check it out, as I said, when you push the "back"or "open"(however you wanna call it) it seems like motor is woking it doesn't slide back though(where to? ) but when you press close, it's dead....
