2005 Mini Cooper Convertible Roof stuck (but only on one side)

The latch on the driver side works as it should, the latch on the left does not move. I took off the plastic cover but can't figure out how it works. Any ideas?

Could be a cable snapped or become detached that opens up the jaws on the windscreen.
