Sunroof trouble


Recommended Posts

Today my MY02 Turbo's sunroof refused to close during a highway ride.

BAck in the garage, I found that, for some reason, the windbreaker does not go down enough and sticks out, the sunroof stumps against it a bit (3-4mm) and goes back. If I press the windbreaker down with a flat nose screwdriver and take it out JUST before the panel shuts, it closes just fine.

From what I could understand without disassembly, the windbreaker is springloaded open during the opening process and it's the panel itself that pushes the left and right arms of the windbreaker down during the closing process.

I found no visible reason for the windbreaker not going down completely.

Any ideas?

did you try the learning process again?

Teaching lifting/sliding roof drive

1. With the ignition switched on, press the lift button and move the lifting/sliding roof drive to the "raised"

limit position.

2. Press lift button again and keep depressed. After around 10 seconds, a complete cycle takes place from

the raised limit position to the positions "lower open close". Teaching of the characteristics has been

completed after this process.

Note: The lift button must not be released during the entire process. In the event of a restart, the

lifting/sliding roof must always be moved to the limit position first.

3. If the lifting/sliding roof drive should move back in Item 1, then the closing force limitation function has

responded (lifting/sliding force drive was taught). The open button must be re−taught in this case.

Teaching lifting/sliding roof drive

1 Press the open button until the sliding roof stops. Then release the button. Press the open button

again until the lifting/sliding roof drive stops again. Then release the button.

2 Press the open button again and keep depressed. The entire process takes place after approx. 10 seconds:

"close − lift − lower − open − close.".

Initially, I tried the learning process as above and the result was.... a closed sunroof with the windbreaker sticking fully out! LOL! This would have been interesting, noisewise at 200kph+!

So that wasn't it... I looked again in detail and a flashlight to the inhards of the articulation of the left and right arms with the windbreaker. Something didn't look quite right since, when depressing the arms fully down manually, the windbreaker would still stick out. So I figured there was a dislocated shoulder (...) and pressed the windbreaker down manually and using a screwdriver and gentle force, I pryied both left and right arms up. I was delighted to hear a healthy click sound and the joints slotted into place! Beautiful and everything is just fine in sunroofland!
