Do you have the manual winding tool for the boot?

One has to remove the boot badge & insert then twist.

With luck that might free it up.

sadly not. sending it into renault next year (due to time) 

the back  top of the boot wont open other then a few incs 
when i did have it all the way up the normal roof would work. 

motor makes a ticking noice like something knocking when you start to put the roof down and no motion  Shocked

unsure what to do so sending it to renault to see if they can find anything
