Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Trying to sell my elderly father's 1999 328i convertible. Upon trying to show it, noticed
that the top would not go down. Is there a switch or latch we should know about? Thanks.

If your car is a US version the top should be electric; Turn the car on with the key - then locate the switch with the arrows on the console to the LEFT of the shifter - between the window buttons. Push it.

Make sure you have the locks released on the top

I have a 2003 and I don't know if it it the same or not but there is a compartment or tray that moves in the trunk to give you more space is this tray is not down the top won't retract and your top lights will flash
