  1. Guest - Welcome to the new Motoring Alliance Site! Steve, MCS02 and I were up until the early hours this morning working to get it done... as you can see it took us a bit longer than expected to get Phase 1 up and running. We are not 100% there.. its a journey. For site updates, "How Do I" and feedback please use the Announcements, How Do I, Feedback Forum (Links below). Like building a car.... its never done... and thanks for your patience

    Lately when I open the roof, just tilting the glass, when I go to close it, it closes then pops back up. I've been just sliding it back a little then closing and it works most of the time. What could be causing this? Do need to clean and lube something or is it a different issue? I've never done any work on sunroofs/moonroofs.

    My guess this is the safety feature similar to windows the keeps it from closing on you fingers. In my case (03 BMW) it was the little flap at the front of the sunroof. It was “sticking”. I basically cleaned out where the little plastic slide is and made sure it was smooth and actuated easily.. that solves it. I’ll try and look in the Bentley manual (later today) I just got and see if it has anything on sunroof service.

    This ^^^^ I had this problem also as it is common now with most cars. It’s an auto safety feature to stop kids from getting heads chopped off. Do as Sully said and that should fix it.

    @Dave.0 - quick question is the ^^^^ and old short code to call a smilie or something like that? I’m trying to pull together a list of old BB codes so I can add them so the smilies etc from the pre-migration site show back up.
