Hi,<br>My car left the road and entered the ditch. I think the car is OK for the most part. It is still in impound so I can't see it too well. One tire is shredded right off. Other little things.<p>But..<p>The rollbars deployed. How do you fix that?!

Re: My Pop-Up Rollbars Deployed. How to fix? (eurotrash_pd)

A trip to the dealer since there are consumable components that have deployed. There is a sensor that will need to be replaced as I recall.<p>Good Luck,<br>Prospero

Sounds grim. Not the accident, but what the stealership is going to charge... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

Is there any way I can lower them down myself?<br>I know that the BMW ROPS can be retracted manually using allen keys..

The ROPS are actually spring mounted so can go up and down as many times as you like, if you lift the plastic ROPS cover up wherer the hoop pops up out of theirs a clip, push the clip in and the hoop can simply be pushed back down into place.
