How to put back F33 rollbars

Hello,
This is my first thread in this forum.
I have a 2015 435i convertible which was in a small accident and the rollbars jumped out and broke the rear window. Does anyone know how to put them back in place? Any option to do it without going to the dealership?
Thank you guys!
Alex

They're explosive charges. They need to be completely replaced. Did they deploy without you rolling over?

I hope you're not some shoddy body shop trying to jury-rig a repair.

Car was hit on the side and they deployed and broke the rear window. Would you recommend going to the dealership? I am not representing a body shop.

So, I am able to put the roll bars down, but they don't click and jump back up. Any ideas?

I think thatís your answer?

Whoís at fault in the accident? Why not use insurance and let them fix everything? Itís why we have insurance.

The car was purchased from Insurance Auto Auction, so I have no idea whose fault it was. It sure ain't mine. The dealership gave us a printout of the same link you guys posted. It seems they didn't know more about it, they didn't say anything about explosive charges.

I don't think there are explosive charges in this rollover protection system, where is that information coming from?

Thanks for the video, but he doesn't say how he put down the roll over bars. Thing is I put them down but they jump back up, wont stay down.

So we did manage to put them back. For anyone who needs to know how - it just needed more strength to put them back, and push them real hard and fast at the end.

Hmmmmm why do I have a bad feeling that probably wasn't the correct way to do that.
