I bought a used Cayenne S in December, the car dealer mentioned the fist(wind blocker ) and second panel panel of the pano roof would not open but the third panel tilts and opens just fine. The sun screen works fine as well.
The 2nd panel will try to open, tilt up then close it looks like the wind deflector is the problem.
Last night I opened the pano roof but turned the switch the wrong way and instead of the 3rd panel opening the second one opened to the vent position! whoo hoo I thought but now it is struck open in the vent position!
I tried the reset by holding the  pano operation knob in position A and the sunscreen closed and then it hasn't worked since. Now the sun screen is closed so that I cant get to look at the now open second panel from the on side.
I then went to the emergency operation of the pano roof and the drivers side head liner  It will move the 3rd panel tilt, and open and closed. The passenger side H looks like the hex key hole is stripped and the tool is useless in it!

Is there a way to move the sun shade to open manually ? I think if I can get that to move out of my way I should be able to get the 2nd panel to close again.
The switch is now in op for the pano roof and the sun shade , I pulled the fuse ( driver side dash # 42) hoping by leaving it out something would reset but nothing has changes.

I was able to fit a slightly larger hex key into the passenger side emergency manual roof closing mech and get the  2nd panel to close.

Upon further inspection of the passenger side emergency manual motor the hex key it is not stripped but it is cracked along one edge of the hex key port.


So on the bright side every thing is closed, on the not so bright side nothing works! If I hold the knob to do the pano roof relearn all you can hear is the motor on the passenger rear side running I believe the gear is stripped in that motor. The 3rd panel now will not move and the sun shade is fully closed and wont move any more either!
