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

      Hello polo people I post on here way to often at the moment but I'm having a slight issue with my cam belt it seems to be tracking to one side that much that the lip of the belt is just off the cam sprocket, now iv changed the water pump and belt plus the aux belt, my thinking is that the water pump is slightly off centre or iv tightened the aux belt to much. But just incase is there anything I can do to troubleshoot this? Cheers

      Hey guys so the engine swap to the 1.6 AEE engine has gone on hold as my girlfriend can't afford the insurance price with that engine swap done so we are looking to get a little more power out of the little 1.0 AAU now i have some parts kicking about from my old MK2F which was a 1.3 AAV but i changed engine for 3F.
       
      Parts i have laying arround are:
      1.3 AAV ECU
      1.3 AAV Wiring loom
      1.3 AAV Air Doughnut
      1.3 AAV 5spd Gearbox
       
      1.4 ABD SPI Throttle body
      1.4 ABD Induction elbow
       
      (maybe a little overkill)
      1.8 ADZ SPI Throttle Body
      1.8 ADZ Induction Elbow
      1.8 ADZ Airbox & Filter
      (whole ADZ engine & wiring loom)
       
      Im thinking maybe:
      1.3 AAV ECU
      1.4 ABD / 1.8 ADZ SPI throttle body
      1.8 ADZ Induction Elbow
      1.8 ADZ Airbox & Filter
       
      Think that should give it a little more power under the pedal? got quite a bit like i said so if anyone else knows of a way to get a little more power out of the AAU with the parts i have listed above please let me know
