Bodywork and fittings / Sunroof - general information

1 The factory-fitted sunroof is of the electric tilt/slide type.

2 Due to the complexity of the sunroof mechanism, considerable skill is required to repair, replace or adjust the sunroof components successfully. Removal of the roof first requires the headlining to be removed, which is a tedious operation, and not a task to be undertaken lightly. Therefore, any problems with this type of sunroof should be referred to a Peugeot dealer.

3 Removal and refitting of the sunroof motor is described in the following paragraphs.

4 Refer to Chapter 12 for details of sunroof switch removal.
