Re: Sudden loss of power to electric roof help!
Please help as I am losing the will to live on this one….
Few weeks ago the power hood started to play up… the release mechanism (motor I think) in the middle is the rear compartment wouldn’t release the two cables. Read on the forums and this seem to point to lubrication. Before I did that, dropped the hood, went to the pub, came out and hit the button to raise again. Motor wouldn’t release the two cables… so I twisted it by hand, until thunk one of the cables broke (I think), as all the tension went and cable now slack.
I have read the various threads on the forum and people talk about the release buttons on the bulkhead behind the seats and the manual talks about emergency release cords… I cannot find any of those… Could someone tell whereabouts I should be looking?
