    Small problem

    Roof engages until it beeps seats go forward but about 3 inches back sounds like roof is jamming (motor just whining but roof not retracting at all)

    ANy ideas anyone ??

    Tried the emergency method too (electrical buttons ) no luck there...

    dont want to drain the system unless i really ahve to.....and do it manually...


    please help if you can ....

    The joke of it is if you leave roof down too long , the top will get marked. Ferrari should have either gone fully automatic -360- or left it manual -348.

    Basher, I had the same prob about 10 days ago. It was simply that the seats weren't sliding far enough forward - the reason - my diary was jamming the passenger seat from going fully forward!! I suggest you check to see that nothing is jamming the seats from going FULLY forward. If this does not cure, then I have no clue!

    kARL SHOWED ME AN OVERRIDE!!

    Its just behin d the passenger seat and has two buttons 1 Up 2 Down

    Or Cl/Op....that will override the manual swiching involving the seat movements..

    Good luck Fraser

    I had problems like this a long while ago until I bled the system fully. Now it works like a dream
