Convertible Help -

Hi all I have a mjor dilemma on my 05 minicooper a couple of month ago the roof broke ) standard cable issue ditaching from one side. so using the utube guide and the guide from the forum set about implementing th fix myself.

All went well then Tuesday night my wife opened the roof it jammed ( once the lock disnegage the second beam failed to unhinge appears to have bent one of the rear struts .
I tried to get it too close but its shortened the strut so now one side is a bout 2 inches shorter . Im gutted as it whilst the rest of the vehicle is in good nick the roof repair will probably outway the value of the car ?

So i suppose what i'm asking anyone got any suggestions as to where i can get the best price for it or where i may be able to get a full replacement rather than the dealer trying to kill me on the repair.
