946 Spider Passenger Window stuck, Stopping Roof opening

Decided that as it was a nice day today I would drop the roof on my Spider, but all I got was a bunch of clicking sounds and a warning that the Roof operation was not complete. I had this issue twice in the summer and the dealer traced it to a Passenger Window fault - The window needs to drop to allow the roof to open, but the Window refuses to open. The second time I fiddled witht he wires in the Boot fuse box and it solved the problem. Today, If I press either window switch, I hear a few clicks from a relay near the door. When I open the door the window does not drop. I have tried the wire fiddling with no success and was hoping for some suggestions from fellow owners before i book it into the dealer again.

If the clicking is in the door,take it to a garage, as the regulator is gubbed ( assuming you don't want to tackle that yourself)

If it's out with, check the plug between the A pillar and the door.

New one for me...
I've had mine saying boot lid is open when it was closed, just opened and slammed shut... Only done it the once though....
Hope you get yours sorted for the summer. Be a shame to have a drop top in the summer but it not to work...
