Hello, i have a problem with the panoramic roof is fully closed now. The problem is that is not open (even it doesnt lift from the rear side so as next to pull up the front side and slide to the back).
The motor (teeth still good) still works.
When i press the button to open the sunroof it makes some crunhies noise inside the cables.

How can i lift manual the sunroof from inside so as to remove the glass and have acces to the rail and see what is the problem?

Thanks

This happened to me 7months ago a month after I purchased my 2016 CLA 250 4Matic. It is the sunroof rails that are broken. Unfortunately it’s an issue you have to take it to the dealer.

I have this problem with my sunroof too. Is there somewhere else besides the dealer where we can repair this in the LA area?
Were you able to find a place which was less expensive than the MB dealer?

I’ve had the same issue. It was my sunroof rails that costs about $1,700. What I did was is contacted MBUSA & tell them the issue. They will help you out on that & pay $75% of it. This is called an “Mercedes GoodWill” Now here’s the kicker if something shall happen on your vehicle they will NOT help you out on that.
