I am having trouble releasing the convertible top. Drivers side latch is locked down, while the passenger side latch is loose and not locked all the way.

If you try to unlock manually with allen wrench, there is resistance, and spins the allen key back. The electric motor will still work, but will not unlock the top - I also dont want to strip any gears.

I went to a Bmw specialist to see if they could figure it out, but they couldn’t either - they said they found nothing in forums either regarding this issue.

Any help on this? there is not a clear forum of why the allan wrench is cranking back.

Did you try taking off the black cover where the allen bolt is and see what's happening under neath? Also try holding down the button as you turn?
