    Hi all,

    This is my first post, so apologies if it's in the wrong section.
    We have recently bought a little 2005 A200 cdi for my wife to use as a daily drive and I have noticed an issue with the sunroof. On opening the first section (the deflector) doesn't seem to raise at all although the sunroof will open as it should, has anyone seen this before or know of any fixes?

    It's probably seized on the hinges, my advice would be to not use the roof, WHEN it breaks you won't be able to close it fully and the roof cassette is over a grand .......

    Cheers for that. It's not stuck or anything like that as I can raise it manually and I can hear something moving when I press the switch once, it just doesn't raise but it will lock down when closed fully. It's a weird one and not knowing how it works or what controls the deflector is annoying me.

    I know it's expensive to replace as it's one unit, but I am hoping a can do something with it. On the plus side it was quite cheap with only 40,000 miles on the clock and is fully loaded so it probably worth replacing if I can't get it fixed.

    Thanks for that, at least I can now see how it all fits together. Do you think the whole sunroof would need replacing to fix it?

    Thanks for that. I will have a look at it tomorrow and see if I can salvage it and go from there, if not I will see how much a replacement is.

    Thank you again.

    Hi Mladen, and welcome!

    Sadly, Malcolm won't be able to help you, as he's no longer with us ...

    I've just emailed you the relevant WIS pages, and some EPC screenshots - 12 files altogether.

    Hi All
    Apologies if this has been dealt with before and the long winded explanation/scenario.

    My elderly mother has an A150 from 2008 with the panoramic roof. It would appear that something has snapped at the rear on the drivers side. Motor works fine it just will not go backwards. have been told this will cost a small fortune at MB to fix and whilst I am capable of doing the usual repairs myself am not sure if this will be possible on this occasion. The car is located in Norfolk and willing to pay to be repaired just not MB rates. Is there any recommendations out there or advice.
    Thanking in advance for any help and guidance.

    Hi guys, I've got the same problem too on a 2005 w169 A200 with panoramic roof. The rest of the roof slats move back and forth as they should but the single front wind deflector roof slat does not rise. I can manually raise and lower the front wind deflector roof slat, but it doesn't do it automatically like it should.
    I would be very grateful if anyone could send the repair instructions that were mentioned in the earlier post and an estimate of cost/difficulty to fix.
    A huge thanks in advance.
    Alex

    No idea of the cost and/or complexity of this repair (won't be cheap or simple I suspect), but here's an archive of 38 relevant files for 169/245 Lamella roof:

    https://we.tl/eGOVlk0TgK

    It's too large to attach here, so I uploaded it to WeTransfer - they keep them for one week - get it before it expires ;)

    PS So glad my A200 got solid metal roof!
    Some 245 owners in Canada opted to replace the lamella roof with a solid glass one - perhaps worth checking and comparing prices for both.
