    May just be knackered seal around the edge of the glass.
    Not a lot you can do other than replace the glass as there is no seal listed, & that won't be cheap.

    seems the sunroof is the same as fitted in the mk4 and i can get one of those cheap. Closer inspection the metal frame between the glass and the seal was 7-8mm up from it, whereas it was flush the rest of the way. Tried pushing it, then clamping it, then finally hammering it and it wouldnt go back down. So siliconed in the meantime until i get a new sunroof. Cheers for the help and advice mate.

    If it's sitting high at one side it might just need re-alignment.
    Can you get hold of a suitable Haynes manual?
