Newb with Clio II sunroof problems!

Hi guys (newb here),

Just picked up a nice tidy MY99 Clio II RXE 1.6 for 1500 and we knew the sunroof had an issue but weren't sure the severity of it.

Anyway, if you press the switch to tilt one side of the glass seems to move back slightly forcing the glass out at an angle and then getting stuck.

I removed the glass for a closer look and apon tilt one of the front mechanisms raises and moves backwards slightly whislt the other just raises.

When pressing the button again both the front mechanisms slide to the back and the rear cams units open. However, one of the front mechs slides all the way back, the other doesn't.

On retracting the roof, one of the rear cam units doesn't return fully home leaving a gap between the glass and the roof. I've managed to force it home whilst the motor was moving.

It's not a grease issue but I wondered if someone had some tips for completely removing the sunroof unit and checking it all.

Also, what's this 'point zero' thing as basically it seems to me that the slides are out of sync.

Is there an exploded view diagram to look at??

Have a look in the Clio FAQ (link in the side bar). There are a lot of sunroof tips I compiled, mainly as a result of issues with my MkI but they should provide a good starting point.
