Hi,

if the rear headrests are triggered then this will stop the roof from working

The reset is to insert the long L shaped tool down the side of the headrest to press on the release lever - it is quite tricky doing this for the first time as you need to get it just right to pass through a small opening as you insert the tool down.

If you look on the side of the headrest you will see a small stitching mark on one side of eadh headrest - this is where you pushe the tool down.

It is easier with 2 people - one inside the car pushing the tool down & another on the outside with the rear windows open to push the headrest down once the release is pushed.

Let me know how you get on & if you need anything else

Best regards, Paul
