[xj40] Sunroof closure

Hi all
The sunroof on my car doesn’t close quite properly. When it’s
closed, the rear RH side of the sunrrof pnael is down by just a
millimetre. It’s not enough to cause a prblem with rain, but you do
not notice some wind noise. Is there anything I can do to adjust it?

While I’m at it, there’s a small spec of rust on the one edge of
the sunroof that I’d like to treat. It’s a bit difficult to get at
though. Would I have to take the sunroof panel out, or can I get at
it from inside the car?

Thanks

The sun roof panel is pretty easy to remove and I suspect
for both the panel adjustment and the rust treatment, you’ll
need to.

With the panel open just a few inches, remove the screws
across the front of the panel. Lift the front of the panel
and ease it forward to free it from the back.

Once done, I think you’ll have good access to correct the
drooping corner and to treat that pesky rust spot.–

Thanks Win

I’ll have a look at removing the panel, But I’m still not sure what
I have to adjust to fix the drooping corner at the back end of the
panel?–
