Golde Sunroof Cable - 1.5 inch small rod


Recommended Posts

Anyone know the purpose of the small rod protruding from the plastic end piece of cable?sunroof.jpg.7d3c8c1c5b317ea9594483e801d42767.jpg

My existing cable was damaged and while replacing with a used cable I purchased, that little rod snapped off-got caught up in the 

sunroof headliner panel.  The sunroof is functioning fine and raises flush with roof when closed so what exactly is the function of that rod?

Did you try extracting the broken rod from its plastic housing and pressing a replacement one in place.  A stiff piece of steel rod should be easy to find, even if it's slightly larger...and IIRC it's just pressed into the plastic.




When I removed my sunroof cables, it seemed like I just looked at the plastic part crossways and it snapped.  Don't be surprised if the plastic is very fragile - if it is the original.
