Question about Audi TT
In a convertible vehicle with a hardtop vehicle roof comprising at least two roof parts, which are movable between a closed position in which to roof parts cover the interior space of the vehicle and an open position in which the roof parts are in storage compartment behind the interior vehicle space, and wherein the roof includes a rear window which is removable from the roof and utilized, in a raised upright position, as a wind deflector, the roof parts and the window are separated from each other and fitted when the roof is open, into the storage compartment behind the interior space in an upright position one behind the other transverse to the longitudinal vehicle direction.
Removable panel sunroofs offer only two positions, on or off, and have no complicated drive mechanisms. The panel(s) may be transparent (glass or plastic) or opaque (metal or fiberglass). Clean the outside as you would the rest of your vehicle, then remove the panel(s) to clean the edges. The latches and locks may need occasional lubrication or adjustment, which is best left to a sunroof professional.
Most important on removable panel sunroofs is care and maintenance of the gasket around the perimeter of the opening. Clean the gasket at least twice a year with a clean, damp, lint free cloth. Occasionally, use a mild detergent solution, depending on conditions in your area (i.e. dust, leaves, salt etc.), followed by a rinse using a new cloth and fresh clean water. NEVER apply mineral oil, petroleum jelly or vinyl dressing to your gasket. Occasional application of light silicone lubricating spray may be fine if recommended by the manufacturer.
When removed, the panel(s) should be carefully protected a padded sunroof storage bag or wrapped in a blanket.
-------------- Pop-up sunroofs vent in the rear, and have a removable glass panel. They require little maintenance, except for regular cleaning.
Start with the gasket, which is the seal between the glass and the main body of the sunroof. The days of tired, worn, rubber gaskets are a thing of the past. Sunroofs today use long lasting high tech materials like silicone and EDPM rubber which resist UV and other damaging effects that Mother Nature dishes out! Clean the gasket at least twice a year with a clean, damp, lint free cloth. Occasionally, use a mild detergent solution, depending on conditions in your area (i.e. dust, leaves, salt etc.), followed by a rinse using a new cloth and fresh clean water. NEVER apply mineral oil, petroleum jelly or vinyl dressing to your gasket. Occasional application of light silicone lubricating spray may be fine if recommended by the manufacturer.
The glass panel should be cleaned with a non-ammonia glass cleaner and lint free cloth. Occasionally, hard water spots can build up on the glass which are easily removed with household white vinegar and a soft cloth. Handle the glass panel with care when removing or reinstalling. Tempered glass can easily shatter if scratched or chipped. Always inspect your glass when cleaning. When removed, the glass panel should be carefully protected in a padded sunroof storage bag or wrapped in a blanket.
The sunroof main frame, (the frame around the glass, on the vehicle roof) may have one of several types of finish. A smooth surface is usually electro-static powdercoat paint, and needs little more than normal car-wash cleaning and an occasional application of car wax to maintain its luster. A textured frame surface is likely a composite polyamide frame which should be cleaned regularly with mild detergent. Do not wax a textured frame! A white chalky buildup on a textured frame is likely car wax which can be removed with a soft brush and mild detergent.
Your local sunroof professional can clean your sunroof, inspect the adjust the hardware and gasket and send you on your way in no time at all.

Read this before going to the car dealer or a mechanic, you never know it can help.
If the deflector is moving , even if just a bit, that means that controls or eventual relay are not cause for the problem.
The problem is often because the steel cable that is supposed to pull the deflector is lose, or sometimes because the traction motor is defective. Grease or dirt can also cause same problem, but this is not very common.
If you want to DIY, the best thing to do is getting a full repair manual, that will show the whole illustrated procedure to access, disassemble, and put back together the mechanics.
I suggest buying the Chilton or Haynes manual, probably the best choice available.

Try spraying lube down the window tracks on both sides of the front to back! Or you could take off the door panel .to get to the tracks.Either way the dragging down of the window will prematurely burn up the window motor and that could be expensive good luck with your repair thanks!.
