Manual soft top jam
Hey guys I'm new here I have myself a 02 325 with a manual soft top. I have my top down and it seems to be stuck. I'm trying to get it back up but every time I press the button to unlock the convertible compartment hatch nothing responds. Sometimes it'll make a loud clicking sound from the back. Anyone have any solutions? Thanks

I can show you how to do it. Are you near Downtown? (I've always wanted to see a manual E46 top in person!)

It's most likely the cover motor which is under the middle of the back seat. You can operate that by hand so you can get the cover unlatched.

I live in the Hollywood area, I actually lifted up the back seat a bit earlier looking for the emergency lever which I guess only comes on the automatic ones. Its was dark though so I didn't get a good look at the cover motor.

It's the same either way. Remove the middle gear to enable manual operation.

Gotcha, I'll take a look at in during the day tomorrow when I can see a bit better, I'd also be down to meet up if I cant figure it out, the tops a beauty I love the thing most are auto these days
