Easily fixed and easily broken I just put my sunroof back in and broke one in the process. Otherwise it was a success.

The part number is 911 564 127 00. It’s approximately NZD 11 from Design 911. I won’t order a replacement right now as my Spyder arrives in a few weeks and I may have other things to order. Name:  photo54.jpg

Whilst talking Sunroofs, anyone know what stops the back end kicking up when closing, as I need to give mine a little push up to help it seal properly
Everything else works fine other than that...

It’s a purely mechanical action. The front runs up on the hinges, whereas the rear runs up on ramps in the rails. There is no adjustment. If you have to push it, maybe the drive is running out of strength to push it up, or one of the seals is interfering.

A note to others lucky enough to have sunroofs

The mechanism is very simple, but some of the parts are eye wateringly expensive.

The mechanism has no adjustment or limit stops. You push the button to close or open and a motor acts through two cables to pull or push the roof panel. When it reaches the mechanical limit it stalls the motor. The point of weakness, as I found, is the cable to carrier join. In future, I will be careful not to keep the switch on when I know the roof has closed. Otherwise I’m just putting unnecessary force on the join.

Thanks for the info, mine just seems to stop short of hitting home nice and flush...
I'll open and check the felt at the weekend to see if there is any obstructions?

Doh!
I let mine run to try and get it home...
Good to know.

Just having fun with mine. I noted mine wasn't quite square which stopped it coming up fully. Maybe that's your issue as well. I'll adjust it by undoing the transmission cover, manually pushing the roof fully closed then closing the cover again.

In my haste to fix the roof I missed a critical item. The right hand side plastic slider is broken on the part that guides the roof over the hinge. .

The new price is staggering for a bit of plastic. USD 29.
