Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year of registration (not plate or model year) in the post subject/thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Registration Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

For Tech II issues or help requests please state the following in your title ''Tech 2 help required - state issue and your location ''.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum, note compliant threads will be moved back when the mod/admin team next visit the Pit Lane. if your thread has been sat in the Pit Lane for 24hrs+ after editing, pm Tech II to request release)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Hi guys

Pressed electric roof down switch
All well until, with the metal hood cover in the up position ready to close display reads ‘manual operation only!
Did not want to force hood cover down so the Wife and I slowly lifted hood up manually and the hood closed perfectly electrically from there. Tried same process again, same result, locked with metal hood cover in up position, hood in lowered position

While I could see all the hinges and electrics all seemed very clean, no rust and all in clean order with no obvious faults. Rams seemed dry.

I did notice that the operation was a little slower than normal, maybe fluid low or needs changing!

Perhaps members could point me in the right direction, videos on accessing the pump or posts on this? Would be very grateful, before I start investigating.

I have found some videos on YouTube, but they don’t seem to cover a 2009?

Some say the reservoir is accessed from the boot, others from inside rear with the back seat cushion down?

Mines a 2009 Aero diesel convertible.

Many thanks
