my 2003 BMW convertible will neither close or open. How can I fix i?

Asked by Jun 26, 2017 at 06:16 PM about the 2003 BMW 3 Series 325Ci Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I initially started having problems when I attempted to close it about a week
ago. The top started to close but within about half an inch from closing its
started emitting a knocking/whirring noise from the middle of the roof
directly over the rear view mirror. The top was attempting to close but not
able to finish. After about 5 attempts on my part to close it, a screw cover
popped out with a screw following directly afterwards. I was able to screw it
back in, but it keeps unscrewing itself when I attempt to close/ open it. I will
attach a photo when I get back to my phone. Is there anything I could
attempt to fix it myself?
