Needed some help and advice on my Audi a4 convertible 2007.
I hadnt tried my convertible roof for a few months now, since then i had the whole left side of my car painted (3 panels which were removed and painted from car plus bumper). I hadn't checked the roof opening/closing before and after the car returned!
When i recently tried to open it, the roof opened fully. I drove around for a while and when i got to the park, i tried closing it, and thats when it wouldn't close. I could hear the hydraulics trying to close it but back panel only opened slightly and wouldn't go further.
I closed it manually.
The next day i tried openeing it again with button and now every time, it unlocks the roof and raises an inch but doesn't go further!
I tried a manual reset by: Turning the car off, then manually opening roof and closing roof. Started car up again and tried and still nothing worked!
This sums up what is currently happening:
1. if i turn car on i get flashing roof light. Which goes after a few minutes.
2. press the 'roof down' button, windows go down, roof dis-engages then stops after one inch. Storage compartment does not open.
3. Have to press roof button again to close it.
