Audi S3 8V facelift sunroof intermittently working


Hi Guys,

This past year iv had nothing but problems with the sunroof intermittently not working. Audi have looked at the car twice and cant find the issue and have greased up the rails and checked the wiring. The one time it was not working and in their possession they where going to change the motor and then all of a sudden it started working again.

I don’t think it’s the motor as it starts working again randomly and I can hear the motor clicking when pressing the switch.

This has probably been the 3rd time it’s not worked.

Has anyone ram into this issue?

When you say 'not working' do you mean not fully sliding open, open partially opening, or not tilting?
Everything doesn’t work, stays in stuck position!

Iv once even disconnected battery and waited 15 mins and reconnected and did nothing

Has the ground connection been checked / confirmed good?

I’m assuming you are taking about the sunroof motor? If so then no as need to pull the roof lining off to get to the motor as the motor is behind the sunroof not under the dome light
