    Hi Guys.

    I wanted to open the roof of my Copen but it has stopped working not long after the beginning of the sequence. The main windows are down and the boot has tipped to the rear... and that’s all :c

    Now nothing is working anymore so I want to manually close the roof.

    So i’m in the situation where i must tipp the boot to the other side (front). I looked at the steps in the manual closing procedure: I pulled then turned the blue strings on each side then tried to lift the boot from back to front. And the problem is: I can clearly feel a resistance stopping me to process any further, pretty sure the resistance is because of the force in the hydraulic cylinders.

    I don’t know what to do, any help is welcome...
