Alfa 147 Sunroof

Evening chaps,

The sunroof on my 2006 147 stuck open a couple of weeks ago - I don't use it that often and I think the runners are knackered. I've managed to get it nearly closed - not good enough of course but I think that's as good as it going to get. I resigned myself to picking one up from a scrappy but although I've come across some for the older models, I can't find one for my Face lift model and I'm starting to wonder if my sunroof is post production..?

Is there anyone out there with a post 2005 (face lift) model that actually has a sunroof - and more importantly, anyone know where I might be able to pick one up, please..?

cheers

I've got a factory fitted sunroof on my 2007 built F/L 147.

Get some good quality silicone freeing spray and get as much of it down the sides into the runners as possible, all the time flicking the switch from open to closed continually. Might want to run the engine to save your battery, but basically soak it while keeping it moving. With sunroofs you have to use them or loose them.
