    Problems with A3 Sunroofs

    Anyone else in the same boat as me? Mines opens and has a live of it's own. The dial to open it will still be sitting at off and the sunroof will open tilt and slide on it's own.

    I have no idea why? Went to VW they didn't have a clue, not had a change to get over to Audi but i need to do something.

    funily enough, in the last few months i have noticed mine just tilt open a few times, but on saturday i opened it, then lie u sed it just had a mind of its own, it was starting to close then open again etc, even when i took the key out. in the end it took me about ten minutes to get it closed so i could leave the car, then i was worrying all day that it was gonna open again but it didnt.
    And i also have no clue why! so any help would be much appreciated!

    Not happened on mine but that sounds a bit like there may be water getting to the sunroof motor, maybe check its sealing properly when closed

    It sounds like a dodgy rheostat/potentiometer. I think a replacement is still available.

    Yeah mine does this too, only when key is in ignition though.

    Driving along, tilt up, down, up down wait a bit, then up again! WTF?!!

    Looks funny when sat at junctions and sunroof's dancing and I'm not touching anything!! Lol

    Would be curious to find out what it is!
