Hi. You need to dry out your car. You have too much moisture inside.
To dry it out you need to air dry out for a few days with the windows open and inside a garage. Then you'll need a demolding agent and wash or wipe it out. Hope that helps.

  1. Move the sunshade rearward to the open position.

  3. Verify the sunroof glass panel is in the fully closed position.
  4. Loosen the forward attaching screws (2) on each side enough to permit the front of the glass to adjust up or down.
  5. Adjust the front surface of the sunroof glass panel 0.00 mm to 2 mm (0.00 in. to 0.08 in.) below the top surface of the roof.
  6. Tighten the front glass panel attaching screws to 5.5 N•m (49 in. lbs.).
  7. Loosen the rear screws (2) on each side enough to make the rear adjustment.
  8. Adjust the rear surface of the sunroof glass panel 0.00 mm to 2 mm (0.00 in. to 0.08 in.) above the top surface of the roof.
  9. Tighten the rear glass panel attaching screws to 5.5 N•m (49 in. lbs.).
  10. Check for proper fit. If not OK, repeat glass panel adjustment.

  11. Position the mechanism covers (2) over the glass tabs (1) between the locating features and seat fully.
  12. Verify sunroof operation and alignment.
There is a reprogramming from chrysler for the sunroof for recalibrating the sunroof for flushness also. the dealer will charge for this .You might want to do this first and then the adjust if not satisfied with the results.

Sunroof on 2003 jetta tdi won't close. it has power, and operates, but will always reopen, by itself, when it is almost closed. ???


There may be something obstructing the path. Possibly the wind deflector? It's also possible that the sunroof knob is out of sync with the sunroof itself. Try putting your key in the drivers door lock, turning and holding that position while the sunroof closes. (not sure which way you have to turn) You can also close it manually with a hand crank (which is actually an allen wrench)

03 Freelander sunroof wont close. One side looks like it is open tand the other side with the moving parts look closed. how do I fix this? Is there a way to take out the window?


Had a smiilar problem with my 2000 Freelander, the runners on the sunroof have plastice teeth which snap off, if you remove the plastic strips on the inside of the sunroof you can unscrew the glass take it out force the sunroof into the closed position and reattahch the sunroof, then never use it again

The sliding panel under my sunroof is broke. Any suggestions? The Sunroof motor is working.


The sunshade clips are probably broken. Need to remove the glass panel. Note the position of the panel the frt and the rear. If not properly reinstalled you might get wind noise. Once you have the panel removed unscrew the clips from the sunshade. Carefully remove the shade and install the new clips.

2003 jetta sunroof wont open.


good evening to you and welcome to fixya

a couple of ideas for you to try, not sure maybe you have already tried, but yo might use some wd-40 and spray the sliding track and back into the motor area. you might also check the motor that runs the sunroof it could have to high of ohm resistence. not sure if you are hearing a whining noise when you try to operate the sunrood or not, is the noise consistent with the glass opening and once the glass stops moving then do you hear any noise from the motor or anything, or is it just quiet? let me know so i can try to help you out the best i can. thank you for using fixya.




please rate this solution???

Sunroof leak


Carefully check the rubber gasket around the glass. Sometimes some debris (leaf, pine needles, etc) get caught between the seal and glass, allowing water to 'wick' inside. Not sure about the Jetta, but my Honda has a drain that sometimes plugs up with debris and goop, causing water to stay inside, sometimes dripping inside as u go around a corner. Best way to fix is to blow compressed air thru drain hole to clear. Last, check around sunroof and roof itself where they meet. Any damage to seal at roof, or torn rubber? If anything looks like it might leak, u can seal it w/ caulk. Check your home center for caulk that works on windows (exterior), it'll work on the car.
