The dreaded sunroof

Post by Oipallett » Thu Aug 06, 2020 11:19 am

I’ve had my car resprayed and come to the point of re installing sunroof and the cable had become really tight won’t come completely in or fully out.

Is there anything that could be at fault?

Can you get new cables or is it a take off and clean out kinda job?

Thank you

Im not sure if they are near enough to make it practical but i know Tickover were doing a deal on repairing and realigning sunroofs for a really good fixed cost. They know them inside out
