Question about 1996 Audi A4

2 Answers

I have a 1996 audi a4 1.8T, the sunroof will not open. I changed the fuse which was blown and I can hear a faint clicking noise when I turn the dial to open but the roof will not move, i have cranked it manually to make sure it wasnt stuck which it is not. I think I may need a new motor, how do I get to the motor to remove it?

Try first to use WD-40 spray to lubricate the guides and make the movement easy,may the motor not faulty.

    Thanks for your response, When i opened the roof manually it was smooth and the rails looked like they were lubricated.

Hi we have a V reg Audi 1.8 convertible and the roof gets stuck when the rear shelf is opening. it pops open but wont raise to lower the roof back into the compartment. We have no owners manual and cannot see a button or lever etc to operate it manually. Can in be operated manually and if so what should we be looking for and where?!! thanks in anticipation, we live in the wetest part of the country and it's a gloriously sunny day probably the only one we'll see for long enough!1

The Vermeulen Hollandia tilt and slide sunroof on my 1996 Subaru Impreza has stuck open. We swapped the fuse for another one in the car and it closed. However, when we tried to open it again it stuck


First, were the fuses that you replaced the first BLOWN sunroof fuse with the same size? Example, 5 or 10 or 20amps...I am going to assume they were the same or you probably would have burned up the sunroof motor or just blown the replacement fuse real quick. Can you help the motor by pressing the palm of one or both of your hands against the inside of the sunroof glass and push the sunroof button while trying to help the sunroof slide back with your hand or hands. (Obviously if you use both hands someone else will have to push the sunroof button unless you have an extra arm and hand) If it slides back with the help of your hands, either the sunroof is sticking against the slide or the motor is worn down and just doesn't have enough strength to move it anymore. You could try to use a light coating of oil on the slides where the sunroof touches as it slides back and forth. Something like WD-40 preferabley but you could even use any motor oil, worst case "Cooking Oil". Good luck with my suggestions!!

Manual close for sunroof


You can try cleaning and lubricating the runners. The sunroof will open as soon as it is obstructed, eg. A childs arm in the way of closing. The problem here is that you can hear the motor running, wich indicates a broken cable, or a stripped plastic gear.

Sunroof will not close


If you hear motor hum than it's probably a bad rail part. I have the same plastic rail part and both sides broke. Can't find a replacement anywhere.

Sunroof


You will need to access the wiring to the sun roof and check for shorted/damaged wiring that might be rubbing on sheet metal and causing a short circuit, if you find nothing then the sun roof motor may be the culprit.

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).
