Hi all,

Can anyone tell me how to remove the sunroof? I have searched the forum and, whilst finding posts and threads which mention 'I removed the sunroof', I haven't actually come across anyone stating 'here's how ya do it'.
My sunroof sits a feww mm low at the rear and I want to align it better. Also, there is some rust in the aperture which would be much easier to remedy with the sunroof totally out of the way.

All help very gratefully received!  Smiley

Thanks,
Andrew.

1. Remove the small screw from the plastic surround.

2. Remove the plastic surround - carefully.

3. Prize the front of the sunroof panel liner down and unclip the two metal retaining clips. 

4. Carefully bend the middle of the front panel liner bar and wiggle each side out, one at a time until it hangs down.

5. Hang the panel liner over the headrests to keep it out the way.

6. On underside of the rear panel you'll see the four "fingers" each held in place by two phillips screws

7. Undo the screws and mark the fingers to their original location.  Wiggle these fingers out carefully and try and keep the plastic slider in place.

8. Once all four fingers are out slide the panel forward (still flat) and make sure the ariel is vertical (if its fitted to roof)

9. Lift the front of the panel up and carefully slide the panel forward while raising the front panel.

10. The rear slider / support is spring loaded onto the back of the panel, remove the lot in one go by angling the panel.

11. Unclip the panel cover from the panel and your all done.

Fitting is pretty much the reverse.
