I have a 2004 Mini Cooper S Convertible and I have been advised that the offside front catch isnt releasing. The motor works, but just isn't releasing the catch. Apparently BMW do not make this part any more. Surely there is a way to fix this other than replacing the entire roof at circa £3k. Can anyone give me any advice or direction? Kelly

This is a forum for the F series MINI range from 2014 so you’ll have more luck looking for an appropriate forum or Facebook group for the R50/2/3 series (2001-2008).

It’s not surprising you have an unhelpful response from a franchised dealer though; with a 16 year and two model generation old car you will probably get a more helpful response from an independent specialist as they are more likely to know how to fix parts of the car rather than just replace sub assemblies with new ones like the main dealers.
