    I'm assuming this is going to involve a trip to the dealer but on the off-chance there's a simple solution thought I'd post here.

    I closed the roof automatically yesterday but was parked at a 45deg angle on a steep driveway - it appears there was enough flex in the chassis that the roof cover has locked on one side but the lock has not engaged on the other side leaving it ajar by 10mm. It won't unlock with the manual T Key so any suggestions - the rest of the mechanism still works it's just the cover won't unlcok/lock ?

    The assembly will be under some strain but you should be able to open it manually and close it correctly, unless it is bent.....

    Seems it's my lucky day/week - local dealer managed to exert more physical pressure than I was capable of/willing to and it's now free and working correctly again.

    Until next time ..................
