Mk2f sunroof problem

Recommended Posts

AmboGraeme

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.

loosen it , and with the handle in the closed position shove the corners where you want them and nip up the screws

When you say loosen it, any chance you can be a bit more specific?

I guess I'm going to have to strip out the roof lining to get better access?

open the roof 6 inches , get your fingers under the trim and pull down , once its unclipped push the lining back into the roof and close the roof

 

you will see screws in each corner that hold it on- same as a mk2 golf i can photo the manual later if u want

      After the breather pipe that goes out the crankcase into the oil separator what is the pipe that is supposed to come out of the oil separator, and where is it supposed to go?

      For sale is my Stainless steel exhaust that was custom made for my mk2 breadvan.
      Cat back system which consists of flexi pipe, centre silencer, and back box. Also 3 poly exhaust mounts and one rubber are included.
      The system was made by a company called custom chrome in Nuneaton and was designed to sit as high up as possible due to it being on a lowered car.
      The system is relatively quite (a bit louder than the standard system) during everyday driving but does give a sense of drama when you put your foot down. A really nice sound.
      Flexi pipe connection size: Internal 45mm external 49mm
      There is damage to the flexi pipe from scraping on speed humps and a small hole has developed as seen in the pics. The centre box also has some scrapes and dents. Also one of the clamps needs replacing.
      Local collection only

      For sale are my recovered door cards in a fabric called black premium wool serge.
      They have homemade speaker holes that angle up and in towards the passenger and driver greatly improving sound quality.
      Fitted with Infinity Reference 6500cs speakers in full working order.
      I do have one grill, but unfortunately lost the other.
      To fit the front door cards they do require some fettling as they are too wide to fit into the plastic clips on the bottom of the door.
      I personally just put 2 screw through and into the metal of the door.
      Any questions please ask.
      Thanks
      Andy
