Roof operation quirk ???

I have something strange going on with the roof :eek:

If I hold the button to close the roof, and keep it held after closing and the "bong" is heard, and the "roof closed" text displayed, all 4 windows will then close ( they're supposed to ),
but then sometimes - not every time - the drivers window will open again and stop about a third of the way down :(

Has anyone else had this happen, or have any ideas why it would do this ( sometimes ). I thought it might be due to the window sticking, but it only ever does this after the roof closing procedure, the window has never re-opened after closing it in normal use. ( Or is it just me ? )

Been to the dealer once with it an it was a "No fault found" report from them,
although they haven't ( yet ) witnessed this happening. :rolleyes:

I'm sure thats the reason as well. The settings can be adjusted during a service visit or if you can't wait just book a visit.
Its the special lubricant for the roof seals on the Eos. Its probably going to be one of your first purchases (unless you get some free wipes when you get the car). It keeps the seals flexible and cuts out a lot of the squeaks and creaks as well as keeping the water out. Expensive but a very sensible maintenance for every Eos owner. Do a search on the forum for Krytox there is a lot of useful information here.
