Re: 1996 Auidi A4 Quattro
I'd need as much information about anything related to your driving observations to being to try and diagnose the driveability problems, but the sunroof is an easy fix, as this is a known issue on the A4. Here's a step-by-step procedure with pictures that will show you how to fix it easily:
Let me know if that doesn't work (I bet it will though).

Well, don't get nervous. Having to play with the switch and having eventually close the window is a good thing. Go to the aoto psrts store and pick up some silicone spray lubricant.Open the sunroof and spay everything you can see. AAny Tracks, guides. etc. close the window so its only about 3/4 shut and spray yje newly expose tracks and whatever else that has come into view. See how that does asyou run the window through several open and close cycles. Those sunroof motors sre not very powerful and the least bit of resistance works them hard. Good Luck -Ned_
First off, you should leave it closed. At least you can drive it that way. The grinding could be the motor itself, or a gear inside that has rounded or broken teeth. Another possibility is that it has slipped out of a channel or track. Unless you're pretty handy this sounds like a professional repair job.
The sunroof assembly has to be removed from the car before the shade can be removed.
Start with the sunroof glass, put the glass in tilt mode and remove the
plastic covers hiding the bolts. Mark the bolts with white out so they
go back where they were, remove the 6 T25 torx bolts. Push the glass
out from the top and remove the glass. This should allow you to remove the shade.
It's the wheel bearing. Guaranteed. Just replaced mine. Go to Audiworld tech articles for step by step instructions on how to test the wheel bearings. They must have been put in wrong last time or they just went out again.
My Audi A4 has a manual crank spot under a flip cover just in front of the roof on the ceiling. If your roof is opening randomly, it may be just bent contacts for the switch (this is known on the A4). Remove the sunroof switch from the headliner, take the switch itself off the mount, and you'll see the contacts underneath. Bend them more vertical so they can contact the switch knob more easily, and try it out. This fixes the problem on the A4 and your Golf likely has a similar design.
