  1. When i bought my Polo the sunroof was sealed shut with some horrendously ugly (but ultimately effective) black silicone sealant. It wasn't a deal-breaker so I decided if its not leaking then I can just live with it. However as I've been tidying up the rest of the bodywork this monstrosity on the roof is starting to look increasingly crappy by comparison and has started to stick out like a sore thumb! The paint needs redoing on the roof and the colour of the steel sunroof is decidedly off compared to the rest of the car - wouldn't mind sorting that. Not to mention the fact that the weather has been great recently which got me wondering what it would be like to have a sunroof... So I think I need a bit of a reality check really! Is it worth hacking away at all that black silicone and re-doing the sunroof seal? Am I just going to indroduce a new leak further down the line? I'm also wary of how much it would likely cost for what is basically a small hole in the roof on a sunny day...Haven't found any sunroof seal parts apart from on VW Heritage for ~90 quid. I guess you should also ask why someone decided to silicone up the roof in the first place - Was it leaking like a sieve? Was the leak due to a rotting roof and they couldn't be bothered to repair it? Were they just another idiot with a sealant gun and an itchy trigger finger? The bogan in me says if I want a smarter roof I should remove the silicone and fill in the gap around the sunroof smooth with body filler and paint over the whole thing as if its a plain roof. I could probably do with being told this will be a terrible idea also...

    Mk2f sunroof problem

    Hi everyone, got a sunroof problem where it will not close fully. It winds open and closed without any difficulty or stiffness in the winder, but one corner does not "pop-up" and seal properly - the other does though. It is a factory fitted sunroof that slides back under the roof skin. I have tried - Removing the wind deflector - no difference. Swapping over the small metal strip on each side that is angled-up (if you have one you'll know which part I mean) - again, no difference. If I push up from inside it will go where it needs to be but keeps dropping down. Any ideas? Nice and dry for now but need it sorting before the rain comes next.
  4. I thought I’d post this here as I find this while digging around for information on how to sort my leaky sunroof... Done a bit of digging and found a company called Bristol Sunroofs do a seal for a “Britax Sunhatch” which I’m pretty sure is what mine is. Might be of some use to anyone with the same sunroof. It’s listed at £35 plus post! Presume you’d have to get in contact with them, I may do that if it is in fact what mine is and the cheaper options of cleaning it out etc are no good! www.bristolsunroofs.co.uk/sunroofspares.php It seems a few people are having similar issues over this last winter so I thought this was worth sharing!

    Sunroof drain rusty

    I'm concerned about the rust on my sunroof drains iv been meaning to sort it out but everything seems to be braking mechanically at the moment, wondering if anyone has had the same problem and some advice on how to clean it up and seal it, it's not gone through after tapping it with a screw driver so I'm guessing it just surface rust. The black stuff around it is kurust to stop it from getting worse.
  6. The last couple of days with the bad weather I've opened the car up in the morning to find puddles of water collected in both footwells of my 9n3 gti, I've been told maybe it's down to drainage channels in my sunroof. Was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem? Cheers guys Linked a photo https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ihx7pbx4ssi69dv/AADf9xXml1U8gEIvUsyUj3Gua?dl=0

    polo 6n sunroof

    Hello I have a polo 6n, I put the car's sunroof Electric polo 6n1 this match properly, But I do not know what wires to connect for this to work. Thank you.
  8. So as the title states I was wondering if anyone have any tips of maintenance to the fabric folding roof. I know you can grease the guides and such, but I want to know if you can condition the fabric to keep it in top shape. The one I have at the moment has lots of cracks in it and it almost looks like it has shrink in size, but I have found a roof that is in top shape from a totaled Polo at my workplace, so if I replace it I want to keep it in the same good shape.
  9. I've got the chance to get hold of a polo 6N2 sunroof Comes with headlining and wiring.. Any one tried or know if it's possible to fit it in To the 6N? Thanks ronnn.

    Leaking! 6n2!

    Basically i have a leak in my sunroof, and being the start of hurricane season i want to fix it! it's the driverside drain from the sunroof, it's disconnected and i need to know any advice on fixing it? ie; Do you need to pull the roof lining down and is it glued/do i need to re-glue it/ do i just yank it down or is there a technique? It's the 1.4 16v 6n2 model with a standard sunroof, not the open air. Cheers, Dale.
