    A few weeks ago, we were driving home and the top wouldn't close. My husband had to manually close it.. yesterday, as it wasn't raining, we manually opened and closed the top again to reset the sensors, but it didn't make any difference. When he tried to open the roof, it just opened a few inches (the windows came down about one third) but, luckily, he was able to close it again. This morning, I suggested he followed your instructions and after a lot of swearing trying to get the bits and pieces off, he got to the motor and cleaned it as you illustrated. He built it all back up again and we jumped into the car to give it a try. He turned the ignition on and the roof opened the same couple of inches and the windows came down about one third .. I was just away to say it didn't work, when the mechanism carried on and the roof opened fully as per usual. We closed it up again and I'll have to wait until the sun shines again to go out in the car.

    Thanks very much.

    Excellent description. I followed it to the letter when my wife's A4 roof wouldn't open and it worked a treat. Thank you. If you were closer, I'd buy you a drink (or two)

    Hi VagPro! Problem solved. I quite sure. When I thought about the fault codes and used VAG-COM to test the components with a multimeter all looked good, but still no response from the roof. (Except...
