VW sunroof parts

Recommended Posts

I'm sure I'm not the first to discover this, but I didn't see any mention of it in my usual pre-project research on the faq. I had a stuck sunroof that began with stuck cables and ended with a broken crank mechanism. Took a trip to the junk yard this morning and found an early 90's golf and grabbed the Golde parts that I thought might be compatible off it (for $3, mind you. $100 a side my #$%). Come to find out, the crank mech is a perfect fit - no adjustments necessary - and it actually feels more solid than the stock mechanism. Even fits the 02 crank handle. Just a heads up for those of you that weren't aware ...

and Volvo parts are even closer than VW.

Not exact, so you have to do some work, but it's not bad.

Yeah, I used 80's Volvo 240 series cables and they are a tad longer but work perfectly, paid $25 for both shipped.
