First of all, the two drains are at the front corners of each roof, they are there to remove any water that runs off the glass and into the side channels should the sunroof be opened when its wet, that's why the drains are at the front only and the glass also has a plastic moulding on top to divert water to the sides. Remove brake disc from drive flange. Some people forget to do that! Just thought i would say thanks for all the info and photos, these helped a lot. I have an 06 and the sunroof rattled when cold only- I was told that there was a problem with the glass itself.

You'll just end up making a mess and really pissing off the wife when she sees the interior covered in black fingerprints. Make sure your using the right Octance rated fuel. These were only just catching the mechanism so I tried closing the winder further and found I could get another 90 degrees of travel on the winder and this brought the catches fully into mesh with the rails pulling them fully down. The other end of the sun visor has a little hook it clips into. Thank you for all that, teabag.

It's predominantly for a series 1 but I suspect it's not too far off the mark for a series 2. Squeeze the covers between your fingers and they pop open.
