    hi,
    i've got the panoramic sunroof, which is lovely but for some reason, randomly when i come out to the car the blind has opened itself, either partly or all the way, and i've no idea how or why it's happening, my previous car had one and it never opened except when i told it to

    any ideas ?

    Sorry I can’t diagnose your issue, but I’ve just removed mine.
    It was a constant nuisance and was faulty when I purchased the car.
    I did take it to MB dealer ship to try and get some sort of “Good Will” repair but no joy £990 to remove and fix !! So hence I removed it.

    Not heard of this issue and it doesn’t do it in my 212 for sure
    Might be worth doing a reset (windows sunroof) to see if that cures it?

    it didn't happen with my W212 but does occur about once a week on the W213, sometimes it opens fully, sometimes only a little bit, but it's random, i tried the usual 'sync' process for windows on the blind, but it doesn't seem to make any difference, if anyone has any other ideas that would be great
