Roof not working

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have just got my self a 350z on a 07 plate. I seem to have a problem with the electric roof. I have the engine running foot on the brake, press the rood down button and the windows go down I can hear the lock releasing on the roof and that is it nothing else happens. Can any one shed some light on what the first things I should look at.

 

Thank you

 

Lee

Your bank balance would be a good starting point.

 

Seriously, have a search, as this subject has been covered many times.

 

Was the roof working when you bought the car?

no the roof was not working when I got the car. the car belonged to my friends dad who now has past away so I can't even ask him.

I am sorry to hear about your friend's Dad.

 

If you are not handy with the tools or a multimeter I would advise taking the car to a roof specialist.

 

The issue may be something quite simple or perhaps more complex and expensive.

 

Where are you based?

As Zmanalex said, it may be a simple issue, so forgive my daft question, but have you released the manual latch? It is located just above the rear view mirror,

So to update so far. yes I have released the lock near the rear view mirror.

 

When I press the open button the windows go down, the passenger seat back rest moves forward and the roof with the rear  glass in unlocks and then nothing else happens.

Talk to these guys:   http://www.carhood.com/

 

I do not think that they actually carry out roof repairs, however, I am sure that they can recommend someone close to you.

 

I could easily repair this issue for you however I am 500 miles away in North East Scotland.

I am fairly good at fault finding and fixing things. I service and repair power tools for a living. What do you think the best place for me to start looking?

This is a little bit different than a power tool repair I am afraid

First thing that you will probably have to do is get access to the roof mechanism to enable you to carry out preliminary checks.
