Anyone have any experience of a stuck soft top?

Mine got stuck half way today.  I followed the instructions in the manual to close it manually and got it almost all the way shut.  There's still a 2 inch ish gap round the back.  

Normally I would just take it to TGM sport but I'm at my dad's in Southampton so really need to get it properly closed before I drive any distance...especailly as I'll have my cat in the car and he hates the wind noise around the hood at the best of times!  

Had a local garage look at it tonight, no joy.  Going to try Southampton Westway Nissan tomorrow and hope they can do something with it ready for me driving back tomorrow evening!  unless anyone has any other suggestions of course???

Oh no Fiona! I have no idea as I’ve never had a soft top. I hope you get it sorted soon.  We use Tom too, he’s brilliant. 

Wish I could help!  Let us know what happens.

Hope this helps:

Ignition on but DO NOT start the engine.

OPEN the roof fully.

Disable the interior alarm.

Turn off the ignition.

Lock the car.

Unlock, restart and Start the engine, then Close the roof... 

Good luck

Roof won't operate at all so can't do that.

Update.  Took it to Westway Nissan in Southampton.  They got the roof closed the rest of the way and lubricated the whole system as they think that could be the issue...or it might need a new motor.  I would need to leave it with them longer to diagnose and I had to drive back home tonight.  At least it is closed now so I can use it.   Plus they only charged me their base £50 fault investigation fee and returned my car washed, hoovered out and with a full health check.  Can't knock that.

Still need to get the roof fixed but the pressure is off, so it's a toss up between TGM who are great or I've found a convertible roof specialist in Redhill who may be a good option for this particular issue!

I've heard of Abbey.   I'm based near Thorpe Park so usually go to TGM.  Just waiting for a call back from them to see if they can do it.  Trouble is a lot of garages don't want to get involved with roof mechanisms.  I had an auto electrician come to look at it on Saturday.  He plugged his diagnostic machine in and it didn't show the roof module on there so he gave up and went home!
