Convertible roof operation

The roof on my car has a point in operation where upon the rear screen section lifting so the deck cover can be raised it stops and requires me to assist it by pushing the front part of it backwards, I've had it to auto electrician and he say he thinks there maybe a kind if clutch operating with in the motors that are not engaging fully and kind of slipping? He also noted that the roof should operate without the engine running but mine will only raise the rear storage deck cover and then go no further unless I start the engine, does this mean I need a new motor for the power hood or is there something else that could be wrong.

I'm new to BMWs so forgive my ignorance on what maybe such an easy or typical problem,thanks in advance of replies.
