Hi All,

I hvae recently run into the issue where my sun roof will not open in slide mode fully.
It appears as per the forum that something on the lid/cover has broken and prevents the roof from fully opening.

I woud like to use johnewhites plan to open the roof while holding the cover lid closed, however I am not able to close the lid/cover as it gets stuck halfway.

Does that leave me no other option that to remove the roof by lifting it out after removing the 6 torx screws?

thanks
darian

aha, so the glass roof removal may not be required bsaed on what you say....
just wiggle the lid/cover loads and hope it comes loose?
how much wiggling/force did you execise? (I tried a fair amount before posting, but did not want to get too tough...)

I finally got round to taking my roof out yesterday afternoon.
Once the roof was out it was easy to spot the issue.
It appears somehow that the driver got ahead of the front clip. I removed the front clip by taking out the 2 screws to allow me to move the shade and front clip behind the driver.
Put everything back together and voila!
The plastic on the driver was a little pushed up, but I managed to clip it back into position.

Thanks all for your good support and posts.

Took me no more than 45 mins to remove the roof, fix the issue and re-assemble the bits on my own.
