    sunroof and roof lining

    hi all just a quick question if anybody can help :-)
    basically i have a really bad rattle in the roof lining, think it is a metal plate or something come loose thats attached to the sunroof.
    the sunroof works fine still for now but i need to investigate more and was wondering how hard the roof lining is either to remove or to move out the way? any pictures would help too.

    thanks in advance guys

    Hey! I got the same problem!

    I had it checked once, since one part seems to be mended somehow. I wanted that piece replaced but I was told that it was not possible.
    It would be nice if someone has any info about this.

    Don't suppose either of you or someone else with the same problem ever got this sorted?

    My roof has started to rattle over bumps since i used the total closure on the key fob the other day, it's driving me mad. If i have the roof fully open or 1 click down from fully tilted, it seems ok, anything else n it will rattle over bumps. Weather is ok atm so not in a rush but at some point i'll take it to a garage and just wanted an idea of what it could be.

    Hi there. I had a sagging roof lining on my BAM S3 and elected to remove it myself to save a ****eload of cash and just drop it to a upholsterer and then reinstall it. I did it the hard way but found some informative info online. Mine also had a sunroof which actually comes out first to get the lining out. The second link - although its for a b5 is almost identical.
