sunroof problems

my sunroof used to leak -2 front drains were blocked. I couldn't clear them with a plastic pipe smaller diameter. I removed interior side A panels to find plastic drain tubes kinked from interior panel, straightened kink and replaced side panels.

also it would pull one side more than the other on opening, jamming sunroof. The drive cog on the motor was worn, I replaced it with a drive cog from an other alfa sunroof motor to fix it

Re: sunroof problems

The drains blocking seems to be quite common. When I remember about once a year I test them out by pouring some water into the channels to see how quickly the water runs out. A long thing bit of wire normally clears them but you have to be careful not to rip the tube.
