  1. My friend,

    i have problem with the roof top it does not open at all. I tried manual open an dclose but then again nothing done with the button pressed to open.

    My mechanic said the fault codes are: Terminal 87 and Implausible Signal. He said he found the problem to be on one of the two relays of the motor and since these are directly atatched to the motor-pump that we can try to bypass this relay pulling cables outside the unit and attaching a relay there, or replace the whole motor.

    I wish to understand if there is any alternative to fix this issue and not waste a lot of money if you can help me.

    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.

    Hi Dean, The article on the motor clean is for when the roof lifts a couple of of inches and that's it, mostly common on the facelift model. Also it is imperative to pry open the brush carriers,...
