Default 307CC Roof problems

Hi All- my roof is not working as it should. it goes down no problem but on the way up the boot part wont fold down as the two plastic wings won't fold away. I've taken all the trim out the boot to expose the pump, the oil is slightly below min. is there anyway I Can manually get the roof and boot back to a hard top so I can take it in the dealers for a check? I know how to manually fold the flaps down, do I need to drain the fluid from the pump and if so which valve do I open. desperate to get this done before the rain comes. many thanks in advance

Pump does not control the flaps they are driven by the electric motor on the rear panel there is a hole in it to use the allen key to wind them manually the motor is controlled by the ecu based on inputs from microswitches.

Folding the roof manually is possible but you need 2 people the instructions were posted on this forum a few times do a search for cc roof problems.

Dealer is the worst place you could possibly take it you need to find a local peugeot specialist or someone familiar with folding roofs they all work in a similar way

Cables are hidden behind the trim they are hanging out the catches with loops on the end do not pull them too hard or they break.

Just in case anyone else is struggling, I found the pump under the plastic trim at the number plate end of the boot. I’ve topped up every time the roof starts struggling and it solves it immediately.

First don't add on to old posts and second you must have a leak or a bigger problem if you have to keep topping it up!

....and who the hell are you, the feckin Peugeotforum police? I’ll reply to any post I want thanks. I found the ‘old post’ very useful, so might others. As for having a small leak, thanks for stating the bleeding obvious. Must be a Stoke City fan.🤮

Wont last long with an attitude like that.

It is WRONG to post different info onto another post as it just confuses people as there are then 2 3 sometimes 4 different things being talked about in 1 post so what you are being told is correct !

A stuck roof flap is NOTHING to do with an oil leak as i said already in the thread the flaps are driven by a motor not they hydraulics.
