The Roof!

Hii everyone,
My first posting and I need help! :banghead

Since I have had my cabrio, (2003 Reg) I have had intermittant problems with the roof. It gets stuck half way and bleeps.

Up until now the very nice man at the Renault garage has fixed it in seconds for me,( there is obviously a knack!)
This time he will not look at it unless I pay £85! Shock horror! :eek

My local garage has had a go - but can't see how to do it.

Any suggestions welcome please.

All I can think off is either the roof mechanism acting up or it simply needs some lubrication

Have you considered the micro switch in the boot ? When you put the roller cover over the items in the boot - so that there are no obstructions, the rod/rail/roller which slides into place covers a microswitch on the rhs (?) of the fitting - you can usually hear the click when the roller goes in to place - make sure its "clicked"?

When i was at the reault dealer a few weeks back, there was a lad there with his CC and they were messing with it! the boot would open and the roof would start to recline back then stop. the macanic was messing round in the boot then it started working again! so to me if he was messing around in the boot he may have been messing with the micro switch that the cover operates when its pulled over.

Or maybe there could be a jam sensor or something that stops the roof from going back if somthing is restricting it??? this could be faulty??? :?
