[Saloon-lovers] Sunroof Restoration Question

How do you take out the sunroof in a MK VII/VIIM?
My husband wants to cut it out and then reweld it. I think there is
a
way to take it out without all that hassle. So, who’s right and how is
done?

Hey, Lisa, wait a second - Is it the standard sun-roof? - If so, (I quote
from Page N.18 of the Workshop Manual) “Unlock the sliding roof and slide
back approximately 4” (10cms); do not open further than this amount or the
top of panel may be scratched on removal. Remove the two side polished wood
cappings by unscrewing the screws and withdrawing downwards. Remove the
screw securing each slide bracket and press brackets outwards to clear
channel slide rails. Raise the front edge of roof panel and withdraw panel
forwards. REFIT. Enter the locking bar into slot at rear edge of sliding
roof and push back until panel will enter aperture. Replace slide brackets
in position and centralise with pointed instrument pulling brackets fully
inwards to ensure correct location of securing screw. Refit the two slide
bracket retaining screws, centralise sliding roof and tighten screws. Refit
polished wood cappings." …cut it out and reweld it…hand me the smelling
salts…Regards, Les Ashton, SandGroperLand.----- Original Message -----
