My Ride: 325ci convertable
I've posted this in a new one earlier but can any one point me in the right direction ?


Thanks.


Got a problem with my 325ci



When I go to put the roof down the soft top attempts to go down fast then it gets slower and then stops, the back struggles to lift then eventually just stops half way open and then everything just stops all together, the red light blinking...



I also found some oil in my boot well





Any ideas of what's going on?



Thanks !

Bish,

thank you for following up. Pay-141 was new to the forum when he posted his questions, and he also started a new thread at the time with identical content. The forum responded only to the new thread at the time. He had a problem with the left tonneau cover cylinder 54348243269. We rebuild a lot of those at Top Hydraulics: http://www.tophydraulicsinc.com/en/b...cover-e46.html
