No mate just a normal, but now I know the mechanism intimately I am looking out for a 140 unit!Glad to be of help Nick. Did you do a clear roof swap? I forget.
Thank you, its taken a bit of work but nearly there...Greeney, your interior pictures look beautiful. I hope to someday make my car look half as nice.
OK...I've had a new term sprung on me..."sunroof cassette". What exactly is this? I tried a search but nothing on here I could find. Is this the carrier for the sunroof? Is this replaceable? When I open my sunroof, I look down and see lots 'o rust. And when it rains, I get some water in the car, especially the right front passenger foot well. Could this contribute to that?
Yes the cassette is the complete unit that bolts on to the roof and houses the sliding unit.
Oh dear, it sounds as though you have the same problem, if you put your hand in the corner and find the pipe, follow it with your fingers you will, like I did, find the rust or maybe all is not lost and a pipe has worked loose.
Dropping the headlining even around the edge is not difficult to do so worth an hour to spend investigating.
You are dead right, I was slightly disappointed but pleased it rained the night before otherwise I would have had the whole interior in. I am very pleased its done now...WOW! those are really rusted through. Bummer you had to do it all over again but it's a very good move to replace the cartridge now. Glad you found this before the entire interior was completely put back together, that would have involved even more time consuming work.
