My vario roof is not working and it's summertime down here. I would like to be able to manually open and close the roof. I know how to do it but i am worried about lowering the roof manually and not be able to lower the little rear windows.
Is it safe to constantly open and close the roof manually?

No idea...it used to work fine..sometimes it didn't want to work and after a week or so everything would work fine. However one day it refused to close..i closed it manually, and after that...there is no sound when i push the button to open..the button however makes a sound if i push it towards the closing direction (even tough it is closed). The light flashes normally. I don't know how to exactly diagnose if it is the pump, the switch or whatever it may be..i found a diagnostic guide in a pdf format here but it just looks confusing...and if i take it to the dealership i'm sure it's gonna be like $3000 in this country so i don't feeel like taking it to the stealership.
Any ideas on how to properly diagnose the problem?
