    Hi guys new to the forum sorry to start with a fault but I have bought a Quattro Sport Cab (2003) with a roof fault. The roof retracts as you would expect until one of the roof bars catches on the front part of the storage compartment. This prevents the roof folding completely away. It all appears straight & lines up perfectly when you put the roof back up. Not sure how to remedy this and have searched for any previous problems to no avail.

    Hard to say exactly but if you mean it s hitting the bit right behind the rear seats it looks a bit like the whole roof mechanism is slightly too far forward. If you look on youtube there are some good quality vids of the roof opening , might be worth a watch to see how the positioning matched yours.

    Is the rams opening the back cover enough? The rams could be weak or hydraulic pressure low due to low fluid level the pump is located on the osr corner behind radio amp,you cannot fit the roof out of line I've fitted 3 now
