    Sunroof internal cover/blind

    Right, my sunroof is fully functional, it tilts and slides.
    When it tilts, the internal cover doesn’t lift with the roof. Presumably it should?
    If so, what’s likely to be broke or damaged?
    Cheers

    There are two little silver "S" shaped pivot bars that lift the internal cover, one on each side near the front of the mechanism - check that these are present on both sides and correctly located.

    From the photos it looks like your trim isn’t attached to the sunroof. You should be adle to pull it forward into postition not sure how it attaches to the sunroof panel though, think there are a couple of fasteners and the slide bit pushes into a lock at the front, you may have take the roof liner out.

    Yeah, it's in the second picture - you can't see the other part that hooks under the trim, but that's the it you're looking for. It might be the case that someone fitted a mechanism from a moonroof onto your car as a replacement and then put the metal panel back on instead of the glass one to keep it looking original from the outside.

    I can’t find the item circled on the pic below. Is this the part that lifts the internal cover when tilting?
    What does the item attach to?

    Yes, that's the part - one on each side. I'd say it's possible either the mech was repaired and they were not put back in, or you have a moonroof type mechanism with the original roof panel on it instead of the glass.

    When you remove the cassette from the car the centre cloth bit comes out with it but I can’t remember how it comes to bits once on the bench. I’m inclined to agree with fend that you have a different cassette with a Corrado sunroof panel in it because the bits you’ve circled aren’t visible in your photos and it needs them to slide:tilt as when they are broken the sunroof won’t drop down properly, I think because yours works as it should without them yours is off something different. That sunroof cover thing you can see the end of I bet that’s not the right part either, can you pull it forward and take a picture.
