    Cabriolet plastic roof box

    Hi guys,

    Fitted my coilovers today and whilst loading the boot with all the old suspension parts i pulled the plastic roof box handle across to raise it up to give me more space not remembering that the roof was down!!!!! This resulted in me snapping something within the handle, now the handle doesn't work the box up and down. Maybe a wire or something has broke??? Has anyone had this problem??? If so help and advice would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    hi mate, it works on a wire/cable system like breaks on a push bike if ya like, i guess if somethings snapped then it will possibly be the housing/ locator for the cable end that attaches to the handle.
    LOTS DONE, LOTS SPENT !!!!

    Yea thought it would be something along those lines lea, i'll have to look into it in the week. Nightmare fitting the coilovers yesterday lol the bloody car locked itself with the keys in the ignition. It was lucky that the boot was open and the ignition was on, i had to lean through the ski hatch with a thin bent pole and open the roof via the switch on centre console.lol lol

    20's will be on next week so i'll get some pictures up.

    Cheers Karl

    So u shut the boot on yourself whist opening the roof? Lol. Your cab sounds sexy! Coilovers, 20s, damnn!

    I do think cabs are abit high compared to the BMW coupes and cabs, so I'm very interested in seeing pics of your ride.

    Good work mate!
