Title: Sunroof problems
Post by: amontgomeryc on August 06, 2007, 10:41:02 PM
well, i still love my vdub, but am bummed that the sunroof isnt fully functional,

it will pop up in the back with no problem, but one day it wouldnt go back all the way anymore...

it lowers a bit, makes a crack/snap sound and closes back up....( happy that it still closes)
any tips or ideas of how to fix it, ( i suspect it may be something in the track, or its timing is off, or the allignment)

so i may need to take the glass out to fix it

Emich VW quoted 110.00 just for a diagnostic, (out of my price range)


has anyone worked with the sunroofs before that might be able to help?

Thanks

I've taken mine out.  Your welcome to come over and inspect it to get an idea of the effort involved and where the problem may exist.
