Recurring problems panoramic sunroof VW, Audi, Skoda, Seat

The panoramic sunroof that equips the VW, Tiguan, Audi Q5, Skoda Yeti and many other models of the aforementioned brands is subject to various recurring problems to which I will try to bring a solution by different means by trying to be the most efficient and least expensive.

There are 5 (non-exhaustive) recurring problems:

  • water infiltration.
  • locking the sunroof.
  • the sunroof blind relaxed, worn, broken.
  • sunroof movement that does not match the demand.
  • the net of the sunroof deteriorated.

1 Water infiltration.

Among the recurring problems of the panoramic sunroof this one is probably one of the most annoying. In order to solve the problem that makes your vehicle a swimming pool it is necessary to successfully locate the location of it in order to determine the cause. Water infiltration is a fairly complex problem as it can have several various causes that are:

The sunroof frame cracked, broken.

In this case the best is to change the sunroof frame the maneuver is complicated is expensive however it is largely feasible with the right methodology, if the opportunity arises I would not fail to make a tutorial for this work.

Sometimes the engine is lost and no longer knows its reference positions (closed, open).
In this case the reset is effective in many cases, however sometimes it is not enough to solve the problem.
It must be added a manual actuation of the blind in order to bring it into a closed position to perform the handling.
