ROOF MOTOR

2004 BMW Z4

Electrical problem
2004 BMW Z4 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 32000 miles

the roof has stopped working, when you press the button it pops up an inch and then stops it will come back down when you press the close button and lock but will only come up an inch when you press the open button. On the odd time it will work an d open. I have been told it needs a new motor and bmw want 1600 pounds to do the work but I have not taken it in for them to check out. Do you think it will be the motor. I have also been told that there was a lot of the z4 of this year that have the same thing

The motor and controls are in a place that requires the top to be completely removed from the car. 1600 is probably about right. It is a LOT of work and the job requires special tools. The problem starts with the area that the motor and control module sits in is like a bucket when the water can't drain out.
