pluriel roof problems with left boot hinge. Open Manually

If you need help with your C3 Pluriel, that seems specific to the Pluriel (like the roof), ask here. Engine and Transmission problem must be asked in the relevant topic for the problem. The Pluriel shares the same Engine, Gearbox, Brakes and Transmission as the other C3 models (see above for the correct section).

Did you know the Pluriel shares the engines, gearboxes, electrical, audio system, suspension, steering and running gear with the early C3?

Hi, please can you tell me if there is anyway to open the roof manually. I can't open it because it thinks the boot is open due to a faulty hinge which I need to replace.

Thanks

Hello Hyrra01
Although it would have been a great idea for Citroen to have made it possible to do that, from what I have learnt, no, there is no manual roof retraction for the pluriel :cry:

If you look at the retract motors you can see why as both would have to be turned in tandem.
