    Default Merc C class panoramic roof woes..

    Just bought a 51 plate C class coupe, with a panoramic roof - which won't open

    Got no owner's manual so not sure if there's a way to open it manually to look into fixing it?

    There are blinds, which work on the motor, and the motor is obviously trying to move the glass as the interior light dims with the power drop.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    Does it not have a manual wind back option? You can often wind them back with an allen key?

    I’ll have to try and get some info from google - I’d imagine there’s got to be a way to manually open or close it..

    Had a quick google and it seems there's a grommet or something that breaks? Take a look at the thread below and there's a link on how to get at where the problem is behind the interior light.

    Never mind the roof now - bastard won’t start !

    Started it to clear the screens and was running, popped back in the house and it has stopped, not won’t start.

    Turns over but won’t fire. Tried easy start in the air filter and fires on that so fuelling issue. Guess injectors?

    It's the best part of 20 years old; new enough for it to have loads of electronic systems and old enough for them to have perished. I'd look for a relevant MB forum and ask there.
