    Thanks for the response. I realized I made an error describing the problem. the right side closes and the left side remains open. Do you still think it is jammed?

Hi

This issue is due to a faulty roof switch or loose/broken wiring connections. There are 4 wires in the roof window switch hooked up to 2 smaller harnesses that have 2 wires each. Remove the switch and use only the metal contacts in the harnesses. Use a light tester to confirm which one is the ground and live. this is how it turned out for my car.

One harness has a light blue wire with a black stripe, and a black wire. the blue one is live, the black one is ground. The other harness has a red wire and a darker blue wire (silly ford) these are the motor connect and return wires.

You must hook up the power (Live, light blue) wire to a motor wire. You must then run another wire from the other motor wire. To complete this circuit there is only one place that this last wire can go and it is to the ground. Once this is connected the roof should work fine.

To check the motors, reverse the operation of the roof by simply reversing the position of the live and ground wires in respect to which motor wires are hooked to (example, if the live wire was connected to blue motor wire and the ground wire was connected to red motor wire and it opened it, that would mean you would want to put the live wire to the red motor wire and the ground wire to the blue motor wire).

When doing these wire connections, it is advised that you have the ignition turned off. Once you make all the connections properly, you can turn on the ignition and if done correctly, the roof window will move. Once it is closed, remove the wires frome the harnesses and install a new switch.


Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Sunroof switch won't close the sunroof,looking for the way to manually close it


There should be a crank on your fuse box cover {hexagonal section}. That is the manual closer for sunroof. You have to take off cover for readong/interior light to access the cranking point.

My subaru came with a special wrench for working the sunroof manually, the access is under the dome light or the header control trim piece. I'm sure the VW has something similar.

1998 Audi A6 sunroof is will close only half way.


make it go back to the open position,look down the side of the tracks in the roof that the sun shade slides in and you will probable find the guides for the sunshade are jamming up the tracks. only way to replace them<4 one in each corner> is to remove the glass section and then close sunshade that will give access to the 4 guides which are available from dealer as a kit
