Re: Sunroof uneven closure?
All I can say is be prepared for a mare of a job... I've got the same problem with the 164 but it's agrevated by the sunroof being flattened out of shape and rubbing against the edge of the roof.
I've taken the whole thing apart and found that washers had been placed as spacers which makes no sense as you need to adjust the sunroof to fit flush when closed so you end up compensating for the spacers!! I tried fitting more washers/spacers on the other side to compensate but it made the stopping worse.
I believe the spacers have put a slight twist in the tray which is what makes it stop and suffer so my next job is to completely remove them and see what happens. I have a new sunroof waiting to be fitted once I sort al this out but it is the biggest PITA job I've ever had to do on the bleedin car!!
