    that will be the switch itself in the roof. Known issue as the copper contacts break or wear out. Pull it off and take a look, it will be quite obvious!.

    Ive just had to pull out a chunk of plastic that was causing my sunroof not to close. Everytime the sunroof met resistance it opened again, Im just not sure that it wont happen again as it appears that the plastic came from one of the guide rails. And it looks awkward to replace/remove. I desperately need to get a digi camera so someone can give me an opinion on what I should do.

    When I had the issue ages ago, I changed the whole light cluster (picked up for a fiver in the good old days of GTi international).
    May be worth phoning around..

    Clean the metal contacts with contact cleaner or similar. Common fault where this simple fix really works.

    Followed this procedure myself and it's not too tricky. I think the B6 also suffers from a similar issue.

    This is the 2nd thread i've read where i've actually had the problem within weeks of reading it. Last time was the ABS ECU fault :-(

    Still, looks like a nice easy fix!

    Has anyone done this fix on a pre-facelift? I had a go earlier following the instructions on the Audiworld link, but found my unit to look completely different. The pre-facelift unit appears to be completely sealed.
     
  11. I had an 03 golf GTi. Put down the drivers window with the "one touch" and it would bounce at the bottom, set the sunroof to open and the two of them would just open/close until I turned the ignition off. Mental.

    I did this on a pre-facelift. Instructions were good for me.

    You did follow the B5 article not the B6?

    How embarrassing...

    Thanks GSB1! I'll have another stab tonight... using the correct instructions. I'd gone and bought a small torx driver set as well, as the B6 fix needs a T9 bit. What a dumbass!
