Anyone know how to adjust clutch on sunroof motor please?
My mum's got a L reg (1993/4) c180 with just 11k on the clock!
However, the previous owner never used the sunroof, and my mum has only just started to use it this week, due to to heatwave here in the UK.
This means that the sunroof is a bit stiff.
I have WD40'd the rails every 6 months or so, and this makes it appear to move smoothly, however, the windows and sunroof are wired to the clifford alarm to automatically close, and when closing by remote, the sunroof now closes, but the rear edge remains approx 1/2 cm too low, but if manually closed, it closes correctly.
This led me to try and change the clutch setting.
On a w126 post i read the motor was in the boot!, but all i could find was electric ariel and (i think) fuel pump.
Does anyone know where the motor is, and how to adjust the clutch?
And before any smart ass says just close it manually, I would, but this is for my mum who forgets things like this every now and then - this problem only came to light when she left her car overnight and returned to find it with sunroof only 2 inch shut in the morning!
