    Sunroof headling replacement

    Hi, I have a panoramic sunroof with the headling either torn or jammed. The lining is stuck about half way open/closed with a flappy section hanging down slightly. I tried to open it in the cold icy weather and presume the glue decided it didn't want to stick any more!

    I've read a bit about this problem and that it is expensive to get a VW dealer to fix it - 1,500 ish!

    So has anyone tackled this on their own?

    Any tips or recommendations?

    Should I attempt this even?

    Oh sorry, didn't know about that.
    I've put an intro post in the New Members section but it vanished! I'll wait a while to see if it reappears and if not I'll do another one.

    That's a stupid quirk of this forum only. I add all new members car spec to their signature. When you add info in a signature it shows on every post you make. #5 shows it but #1 doesn't.

    I don't know how they would fix it, all but one of the many variations of this roof lining are already obsolete, only beige with rain sensor is still listed at 460+VAT.

    It's just the cloth bit that slides back that covers the panoramic sunroof, not the main roof lining. It seemed that it was glued around the edges and when I used it in the sub zero temps the glue failed and snagged it up. I've read about this happening in hot weather but not in the cold. So hopefully it's a bit cheaper than 552!!

    They call it a "roller sunblind, grey (283) or beige (295) and repair kits for all sorts of problems. Looks like the sort of job we would turn away.

    Brilliant now I know what it's called at last!OK that sounds a bit better price wise, thanks.

    Why would you turn this away? Is it a proper nightmare job or something?
