Top not opening

I have a 09 mini convertible that when I try to open the top, it will open to the sun roof. I press the button again and the windows go down, the latches unlock, top slides back a little and stops. I have checked the switches in the trunk. I do hear the little motor clicking but that’s it.
Please advise
