Dear all,
On sunday, when I tried to open the cover of the panoramic view, the mechanism blocked a little bit before total retraction and since then it moves only 4-5cm front and back.
Any suggestions on how can I repair this without going to the dealer?
Has anyone heard of this issue?

Do you have VIDA? There is probably a guide that covers repairing/replacing the sunroof.
You will most likely need to remove the complete headliner, so its not an easy job to do properly.

My panoramic roof was stuck open when I bought the car (used obviously), the dealer had tried to fix it without success and the roof liner is now imperfectly fitted, he gave up and instead had a light tint fitted, works really really well and can still see well through it from inside and can’t see in, gives the car a lovely light and airy feel...bottom line, leave it open, get a tint and enjoy!

We leave ours open all the time anyway and the factory tint is fine...…..
(Maybe having factory tinted rears also makes the roof panel darker too?)

Thread resurrection! 😁 The sun shade of my pano roof wouldn't retract properly and started to bunch so, with gentle persuasion ie tucking it in as I retracted it, the sun shade is now tucked behind the roof headliner.

Q: Does anyone have a guide on how to remove the roof headliner (and all the gubbings) as I'd like to fix the issue? Ta!
