guys,
i have a friend who has this problem, can anyone help???

Washed the car, and opened the roof OK. Drove for about 20 mins, put the roof back up.

Came out after an hour or so, went to put the roof down using the button inside the car, and the following happened;

1. Roof latches detached from the windscreen frame as usual.
2. Roof moved back about 10 inches, rear 'fins' lifted up, again as usual.
3. Roof compartment lid fails to lift, although I can hear the motor running.

Closed it OK, and tried several more times, same result. Tried to lift the lid manually, but its not budging at all. Pulled the release cables in the boot, but no joy there either.


cheers
