Default convert poly de subdi failed

I am working on the Tutorial of the BMW car downloded from simplymaya.

The converson into subdi failed and this is what I found ine the script editor :

Error: polyToSubdiv1 (Poly To Subdiv Node): One or more edges is nonmanifold.
// Nonmanifold geometry cannot be converted to a subdivision surface.
// To clean up nonmanifold edges, use Mesh->Cleanup with the nonmanifold option. //
// Error: Command polyToSubdiv failed. Open Script Editor for details. //
// Result: doSubdivCreate( "2", { "1","1","4000","32"} ) //



HEEEEEEEEEEEP I need somebody

go to mesh > clean up
i think theres then an option you need to tick that mentions nonmanifold edges, then click apply
then convert to subdivisions and it should work
it worked for me
hope this helps
