    Hallo Taylor,

    I am new here and have read a lot of posts and manny were your thanks for the detailed explanations. And love your bimmer!!!
    Still I don't know exactly what is wrong with my Convertible.

    I just posted my problem "soft top problems going up and down"

    I hope you can look in to it if you have time?

    It started last year when I took of my hardtop and my soft top didn't go up at all and the red led lit up.

    My garage said it was the computer of the roof so he replaced that and when I let the computer be programed at BMW they found out that a sensor was broken.
    When they replaced that on the top worked but not 100% as you can see in the youtube film in my post.

    What do you thing is wrong? I hoped it had to do with a senor that didn't come in where the top was waiting for.
    But it is starting its cycle but can not finish it all the way.
    I don't know what cylinder is working at that moment ?

    You sent me a very informative email about my soft top problem, many thanks .
    I have contacted several soft top specialists, who say they cannot fix my roof. They have told me to get the problem diagnosed by a Bmw garage. I have already had the car checked by bmw and they said it would be trial and error until they find the fault. Unfortunately I cannot afford 75 per hour. I have already spent 200 at the bmw garage, only to be told it could be one of many faults. Can you advise, please ?

    Dear Taylor192,
    Walt Bettis checking in with you and needing additional guidance on my cylinder bow tensioner cylinder hydraulic line removal process. I am clear back to the valve block and see the lines that need to be removed. Even was able to loosen the plate that the connections are fixed in to. I can't seem to get those 2 lines out of the block. How much pressure does it take to remove these connections from the block? In additions to shifting the plate, do I need to twist those connections to remove? I am having a bit of a tussle...I would appreciate your guidance! Thanks, walt
