In the boot (trunk) on the inside left you should find a hex socket in a bracket and manual winding shank for the sunroof in case the electrics fail. Its detailed in the W123 handbook which comes with the car. Hope this helps (mines a 77 230 coupe)

Re: Re: sun roof wont OPEN !

thanks but the manual winder seems to lack the style the swich in the intior of the cabin<br> <br> i dont think its the motor because when the roof is closed (which now is perminant) and u accedently push the button to close it futher u can hear in the back the motor turning away ,doesnt sound healthy (like a heavy duty masionry drill).<br> if i try to open it there is no visable movement of the foof but i do think it dose move a bit.<br> <br> thanks for any help<br> louis<br>

Re: Re: Re: sun roof wont OPEN !

Either the clip that holds the cable on the track has broken, or the cable itself has broken. Pretty easy fix. I've had this happen to me several times. $75. Good luck.
