My Ride: 2003 M3 Convertable
A little trouble putting the top up

I have a 2003 M3 convertable. The top has been down for over a week while it sat in the garage not been driven. When I started the engine the red light by the vert top up/down button was blinking. I press the vert top up button, the red light stayed on like normal. But, the top went up SLOWLY, moving up, them stopping, moving up,then stopping, which took forever! This continued till it was all the way up and locked. Anyone have this problem? Any ideas would be great. thanks.

Sounds like you might need to add hydraulic fluid to the pump.

Could also be a low battery.
