My roof seems to be making lots of clicking sounds when opening. Can remember it being like this when I first got it back in Sept 2016.

Is this normal or a sign of impending issues? it was lubed at the last service at MB in Feb 2018.

Thanks

Mine is very quiet, and it’s 8 years old.

My indie looked at it and lubed the left side where he felt the clicking coming from.

It is now stuck closed and won't budge. The shade works fine back and forth.
No amount of resetting makes any difference.
My MBII shows a code 987223 - the button "roof System" sticks. No signal change. voltage level is too low.

The switches seem to work ok when reading the live stream - ie all actuated when pressed.

Any ideas?

Thanks
