    Sunroof mis-alignment

    started having problems with the sunroof being mis-alligned as in 1 side sits flat and the other is either further up or down than the other

    is there a way to resolve this?

    thanks

    easy to sort ......... (well sort of)

    1. take all of the plastic covering off to reveal the winding mechanism
    2. remove the winding mechanism to reveal the guiders (wire that opens/closes the roof)
    3. take a flat bladed screw driver and allign the heigh of the sunroof,
    4. place winging mechanism back into the hole and re-attach it to the car
    5. try it to see if it needs more adjustments(if it does then follow steps 2-4)
    6. once happy put all the plastic casing in place and attach to the car
    7. try again just to make sure.
    8. sit back and admire saving yourself a few quid from vauxhall
