Default newbie with 207cc with roof fault

hi newbie here, i bought my 1st peugeot, a 57 plate 207 GT Turbo cc back in September and i am LOVING it, despite being warned by a fellow 207 cc owner that she had nothing but problems with hers i have had 3 good months of driving, however yesterday i found what i hope ISN'T a major fault. knowing i should lower the roof at least once a month to keep it in full working order i decided to do this yesterday, i pressed the button and the process started, the windows went down and the boot started to open, it raised about 6 inch and then stopped and i got a roof mechanism failure message, i pressed the button to put the roof back down, this happened but the back windows didn't shut fully and the front ones not at all but the message read "roof manouver complete." has anyone had this happen to them, can you throw any light on whats gone wrong, the last time i drove the car with the roof down was late October and it was working fine then, i only got a 3 month warranty with the car so even if this covered the roof it doesn't now as it has expired. i really love this car and hope my friend wasn't right when she told me i would regret buying it as it would cost me a fortune in repairs.

The 207cc is a good car. The roof doesn't usually give trouble. Silicone grease/spray all the roof rubber seals yearly.

ok, i don't know how to spray/grease the rubber seals on the roof, hoping hubby can help with that one, i have checked my roof fuse and done the reinitialisation of the windows, when i tried to lower the roof the boot lid came up higher than previously but then stopped again, i am sure the problem lies with my rear windows which will lower when i use the window switch but when using the roof switch the front windows lower but the back ones only come down about an inch befor they stop and i get the roof faulty message..... i have to raise them using the window switch, only had the car 4 months, spent all the money i had on it and can't afford to pay out a large sum of money to peugeot to put this right, help... please.

Not sure if 207 is same as 206 but if it is then there are various switches and sensors and if 1 is not getting switch correctly at the correct time the roof just stops

I bought a 206 damaged along 1 side including bootlid and it came with a clear plastic roof as they could not get roof back up

I messed around for a while checking things and decided to put it up manually and after that it worked fine the frame was slightly bent and 1 switch was not closed properly once unjamed it was happy again

It should be a simple fix just find someone who knows the cars

Get out your owners manual and close and open the roof manually. It needs resetting. You left it in between an open and close position too long.

as soon as i realised it wasn't going all the way i closed it back up, i didn't leave it half open, manually is the next thing we thought of trying, hope it works then, haven't been able to do it yet as there wasn't an allen key with the car,
thanks for the advice given so far, any hints or tips gratefully recieved.

No. Its imperitive to finish the open or close the procedure on the bong or the message on the screen. Ie let the button go after the bong not before or the system locks up. Opening and closing manually only way of resetting.
