Hi there.

I'm reckoning that the runners (the rails the sunroof moves back & forward on) need greasing due to lack of use.

When it was re-opening, that would be a 'bounce-back' safety feature designed to prevent people (or parts of them) trapped.

I'm pretty sure some penetrating fluid will allow the roof to re-open, but would grease all the moving parts (including the deflector rail).

Hope that helps.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.

If you are struggling to get it open for access to grease - try giving it a helping push at the same time as pressing the switch.
