      Sticky Sunroof on ‘08 V70

      Sunroof on my 2008 V70 seems to be getting hung up on the right rear edge when opening — not dropping down and under the roof smoothly as it should, but rather resisting momentarily then dropping down with a clunk.

      I’m guessing this is a lubrication issue, but I can’t quite see what’s getting hung up where. It’s only on the one side, and there is no visible damage to the roof, moving panel or frame.

      Any ideas?

      THANKS

      There are 4 bolts that attach the sunroof glass pane to the moving frame. You have to remove the plastic bellows to get at these bolts....on a 12-year old car, these bellows will be fragile and break apart during removal, so order replacements. Just loosen the 4 bolts enough to be able to adjust the glass...you might luck out and a small adjustment will fix it!

      I used some vaseline to lubricate the seal on the rear of the sunroof. I had the same issue with my S80, my dad's S80, my old S40 and my XC70
      Horsepower is how fast you hit a wall. Torque is how far you take that wall with you
