Hi,
Have you changed your mind about fitting an aftermarket pop-up sunroof?
An adjustment procedure is described in the Haynes manual.

Ooooh , you should have watched wheeler dealers when they did up a capri . Spent a bit of time with a factory sun roof that sounds like the same issues you have :D
you gotta make the most :cheers: :cigar: :burnout: out of your 20's, 30's, and 40's coz when you hit 50 the "engine check" light comes on. :?

There are lots of comments on this and the other forum on the factory sunroofs.
As Capris have been a round a fair few years its inevitable than virtually every question a newcomer to the forum could think of asking has been asked and answered many times before. the search feature is your guide and mentor.

It may be worth contacting Tickover, they have sorted sunroofs for lots of owners who had run out of patience with trying to spot on adjust their sunroof
