Convertable top trouble

I was putting my top down and when the rear cover came up it snagged on the back of the top. When that happened I heared a sound that sounded like gears slipping in the rear lid. I got the top to go down but when I tried to put it back up the rear lid wouldn't close all the way so the top wouldn't shut. I had to disengage the motors and put it up manually. Can someone tell me or point me to someone who would know how to reset the motors to their home positions so my top will function properly again. By the way it's a '99 M3.
