IX35 2011 - Sunroof
« on: February 26, 2020, 18:28:41 »
Hi all,

My wife's IX35 has a panoramic roof with motorised sunroof. The sunroof has been fully opened (by my son, we never usually use it!) and now will not close. It closes about 1/3 of the way then stops. It can be opened all the way and then closed 1/3 of the way as many times as I like, however will not go further. I am happy to just get the sunroof closed then leave it.

From a little research I think the motor is in the roof lining near the boot, however looks a big job to get to it.

Does anyone have experience on this matter as I could really do without a large bill for a part we don't even use.

Thank you in advance.

Is there not a facility to manually close it.

On some cars there is either a handle built in by the motor or a grommet you can remove to allow you to insert a handle to manually operate the roof.

Not sure if your model has this tho'
I\'m no expert, so please correct me if I\'m wrong
