I have searched through the posts and could not find anybody with this problem.
Driving today in high wind at 70 mph and the front of the sunroof lifted up and was making a horrible noise. Pulled over to the side of the road and using the switch opened and then closed the sunroof.
It was fine for about 1/2 hour and then did it again.
Anybody know what is wrong or how to fix?
The motor in mine for some reason randomly activates to tilt it up. I hear it activate, though I did not turn the dial. It's a MKIV GTI, for reference. Only thing I could think of is that it's a loose wire or when I go over a bump it sends a signal. I'd say if your sunroof goes up by pushing it from the inside, that could be your issue, but the glass is fairly heavy.
well to enjoy the speed and also want to save money of your insurance then simple thing is that to follow traffic rules . government of every country is planning a new road system in which there would be different tracks for the speed lovers and for the simple drivers this project will be implements in 2014 in US and UK first .
I have exactly the same problem as the OP. My sunroof attempts to flip open from the front at around 70mph. I have to jam some piece of plastic between the rear of the sunroof and the headliner to keep the front from popping out. I was not aware that sunroofs are capable of lifting from the front! I cannot locate said screws. All I see is a bunch of plastic rails. Did someone find the root cause of this? I am getting ready to tear the whole sunroof apart, It would be good if I knew exactly what to look for, I may post some picks if I get the courage to tear the sunroof apart.
Look at post #1. Pics 2, 3, 4 show the screws I was referring to. There is a plastic cover over them that has to be removed in order to see the torx screws I mentioned. These screws have a tendency to back out or become loose from vibration and can cause the glass to lift.
Hope this helps solve the problem. If not, let us know.
