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

Thanks, I've searched and not found much by I have found the manual and it says there is a cable realise for the boot hinges, I can't find a cable any where on mine. does anyone have the instructions to hand?

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.

....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.

..... any anyone googling “307cc roof problems” which was the title of the thread might just have found it useful. Think I’ll get a Lada; their forums might not be full of opinionated ‘senior’ members.

Find it useful yes thats the whole point but adding DIFFERENT info to the thread does not help it just causes confusion.

Good luck finding a decent lada not many left here now i sold a rough one for £800 recently !

Gotta say this is one of the best forums I have ever used. Just follow the rules. don't tag onto other peoples posts. Start one of your own, you will get far better feedback.

The same problem occured to me as Dave mentioned a year ago.
When closing the roof, the boot won't fold down. Roof closes, but after that, two plastic wings won't close away, as they should, and boot stays in open position.

No faults in diagnostics, just checked.

If Dave is still somewhere here, could you please let me know what was wrong in your Pug?
