This extra cost £550 back in 2006
Mine worked perfectly except for a small up and down movement at the nearside rear corner which caused a slight rattle and lifted slightly at speed
The sunroof is useful for letting in the sun; for letting out the heat - and for long loads.
When he saw the little 1007, the man in the wood yard expected me to ask for delivery of the substantial 3.6 metre lengths of wood for my new workbench. He was surprised that the 1007 took it so easily!
It is possible to remove (after removing the interior trim) as a complete unit. This might become necessary should the seal between the unit and the roof pressing fail and let water in.
looking up from inside, you can see the seal in the roof aperture - but little else!
so I shall have to remove the sliding part of the roof to see exactly what holds it in position
The sliding roof section is held by two T20 Torx bolts each side at the front - accessible from inside the car with the roof half open
and by a single T30 Torx head bolt each side at the back - these seem VERY tight (Loctited or similar in place)
Ideally the rear of the mechanism drops down this slide and remains in the down position to seal on the rubber surround in the roof opening. However on the nearside it is able to lift a little, which means it doesn't make a 100% seal and can cause an annoying rattle.
The moving section of the roof came off easily after removing the 6 bolts - they had been held in place by Loctite or similar.
With the roof off the car, it could be seen how it worked. Towards the front, two guides are moved back and forwards by the motor via flexible cables. The rear supports are not powered, but slide in slots - these were very dry and moved stiffly until cleaned out and lightly greased with Castrol CL waterproof grease.
As the roof slides forward to the closed position, the guides pull the back of the roof down and hold it in position.
This is one of the rear guides, taken out of its groove. The two gungy-looking objects are free to swivel on their pivots and comprise outer plastic rubbing pieces, gently pressed outwards (to take up play in the groove) by rubber inserts.
However, when the nearside guide was taken out of its groove, one of the guides was missing! - it is still there, lying in the adjacent channel
once fitted to the pivot, the guide assembly was pushed back into the groove again with some Castrol CL waterproof grease for lubrication.
At the rear, conventional pipes lead the water down through the rear pillars to exit just behind the rear wheels.
Easy way to clear these tubes is to remove the rear light assemblies and pull the tubes up to expose the ends - there is enough slack to mouth-blow back up into the roof assembly.
