5mm shouldnt be a problem, i think that you can also put some thing like vaseline on to, that should also help as a barrier

I have Mercedes SL500 2003. The hardtop in my car seems not fully closed, I can see that it is around 2 mm away from front seal. In addition, I can hear air leaking inside the car during driving. I heard...


  1. Move the sunshade rearward to the open position.
  2. Separate the mechanism covers (2) from the tabs (1) on the glass panel.

  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.

    813bc829.gif
  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.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2003 yukon slt and how do you change it?


Hello joeandirenej,


1. Raise and support you vehicle.
2. The fuel filter is in the frame rail under the drivers side of the vehicle. See image below.
3. Use a 16 mm flare nut wrench and a 20 mm wrench to remove the fuel line fittings. Caution must be use as gas will drain out of the filter.
4. On the outlet side line remove it from the retainer and position it out of the way.
5. Push the filter out for the bracket towards the front of the vehicle.

There will be an arrow on the new filter be sure to point it towards the front of the vehicle when installing.

To install reverse above procedure.

After installed turn the key on four or five times(Don't start the engine) to re-charge the fuel system then start the engine and check for leaks.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

netvan

Renault megane cabriolet roof broken?????


just had the same problem with mine, here's what the problem was, the hydrolic fluid had gone bellow the min level indicator because of a slight leak to the ram, the reservoir is located in the back N/S boot. refill the the reservoir (Halfords do the hydrolic fluid for them) then you need to re-set the roof mecanism, after opening and closeing the back part of the car where the roof goes manually, and trying the switch a few times to reset the locking device with the micro switches, I managed to do it without spending too much cash. hope this helps anyone with roof trouble. -

Is it possible to tighten the roof on a cabriolet?


Hi there, yes there is, you can tighten the front for winter and summer settings, if i remember rightly i think that where there are the two black clips at the front there is a way of tightening these to pull the roof tighter. sorry trying to go back a few years to when i used to own one.

Yes make sure you use a black window sealant around the seal to prevent leaking, and mak sure not to tighten the bolts to tight as it can bend the frame.....
