VW Sunroof Cables


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

The cables for my sunroof are broken. I have been doing some research and found that Volkswagen made cables that fit, are stronger (metal vs plastic), and cheaper than BMW OEM. Does anyone know the part numbers or the exact models that the cables come from? (I also have a Parts Wanted thread if you have them)

+1 on Volvo 240 cables. I've got them installed in my roof. The metal parts replacing the plastic leads me to believe they may last a bit longer. Speaking of longer, they are... By an inch or so. The extra length does not effect the proper function of the roof. Golde sunroofs of similar design were used in porshe too... But I'll bet there not as inexpensive as the Volvo ones
