    convertible roof question

    hi everybody. i just joined and i want to straight away get into it by asking a question. we own an 04 convertible model. its a lovely car. when i was at the dealers looking at it i remember the salesman closing the roof using the key fob. since then, i have never managed to copy him! he left the dealers, and no-one else seems to know how to do it either! and there isnt anything in the maual about the cabrio at all exept tyre pressures! there are only two buttons on the fob so i thought "hey how difficult can it be" i was wrong!
    can anyone help please? i would love some feedback on this puzzler.
    thanks in advance to you guys

    to open you just keep the open button pressed until the roof has disapeard to close you have to dead lock the car (press close button twice) and keep it pressed until closed.

    oh and you have to be standing almost on top of the car too!!! not the best invention they ever made!! hahaha

    or you do what i did and fit a modified total closure kit , so you deadlock the car and the roof fully shuts without having to hold the button down.
    The best six quid i ever spent, looks quite cool too!

    I did the same when i brought my cab, and tried to show off to my mates, it opened fine, but when i tried put the roof up it kept stuttering and i ended up lookin like a right plank lol, i'd be intrested in the total closure kit!!!
