Well it didn't take long for me to get my first malfunction! Here's what happened: Got in the car and the roof flatly fused to open. The roof indicator light was flashing so something wasn't in place.,checked the boot and sure enough, the boot partition cover was retracted. So I put that back in place, and the roof worked a treat. I got home and the roof didn't want to go up. Red flashing light again, so popped boot open, fiddled with the partition and checked what I could see but still the red flashy light. With stress levels rising and profanities starting to be murmured, I dig out the manual and decide that this would be the perfect opportunity to test the manual operation of closing the roof. So boot open, slide the hooks, pull and keep out the blue rings etc etc and with my able assistant, I get the roof up. Still following the instructions, I reseat the hinge mechanism and slide the hooks forward, reset the blue pull loops and successfully close the boot. I'm pretty sure that it then auto closed, but I may have gone insane with stress at the point and completely imagined it. Anyway, feeling rather happy with self for sorting it, I then saw that the red flashing light had now gone to the solid red light. It thinks that the roof hasn't closed. I check the latches and it all looks good. So I thought that maybe it's something in the boot. That's when I found that the boot mechanism won't work. More profanities later, I removed the bottom panel in the console box, and pull on the manual release handle. A satisfying pop is heard and I sigh with relief. I walk round to the boot and it has opened about half an inch, I went to lift the boot up and the thing is stuck solid. It will not open. I push the boot down and release it manually again and the same. So I now have a car that thinks the roof is open, so it won't automatically open the boot, but even after using the manual boot release, it's still jammed. There was nothing in the boot to get caught up in the hinge either. I guess it's very secure now, but has anyone got any helpful ideas on possible ways to get in the boot?
