  1. Window won't work so can't use roof

    VW Eos Q&A
    Hi EOS lovers ♥️ I have an 07' plate EOS 2.0 TDI called Fife (because she whistles) 140k miles. Great engine, pulls like a train. I've had a look through a lot of other posts but can't find any that are the same. Unfortunately since I've owned her (just over a year) the back drivers side...

    D.I.Y. (Do It Yourself)
    Hi All, I have recently bought an EOS and got the dreaded ‘convertible top to workshop message’. Diagnostics came back as an open circuit on the hydraulic roof unit. Very grateful to VoxMag for his great posts on removing the case:

  4. Roof stuck, what next

    New User Introductions
    I got this EOS 2.0T DSG last month. Low mileage and cheap owing to a stuck roof. I did check the cost of repair beforehand, but not the cost of the parts, owch! Anyhow it's a great drive and might be worth fixing, but I don't want to shell out thousands, I may as well just buy another EOS with...

    VW Eos Tech Q&A
    Hi! Just started having an issue with my roof. The passenger side rear flap (the last piece that closes on the roof) does not close when the roof is completely down. There are no errors messages or any other issues, I just have one shark fin when I drive around with the roof down. When I...

    Hi all! First up, I'd like to thank all posters past and present for sharing their knowledge here. This forum has been an amazing source of information whilst searching for an EOS to call my own. With that in mind, I went to check out a late 2009 model last week which ticked all the boxes...
  8. Roof repair specialists?

    I've given in to the idea that I'll be needing a specialist to fix my roof problems. Does anyone know of a suitable garage or individual, ideally in the South West of England? I'm aware of Caymen Autos in Surrey, but that's about it - and they are a LOONNNGGG way away from here in Exeter...

  10. Roof not closing on right side... Hitting interior panel

    VW Eos Q&A
    Hello, I have a problem. The right side roof panel is not going into its hideaway compartment on the right side.

  12. Roof mechanism lubrication

    VW Eos Q&A
    I own a 2012 Eos, which I have owned for about 9 months now. The roof works perfectly and has never given me any problems. My interest is keeping that way.

    D.I.Y. (Do It Yourself)
    I'll try to keep this short... I have a 2008 EOS 2.0 TDI Sport DSG. So a couple of weekends ago I decided to put the roof down for the first time this year and it went down without issue so off I drove to the shops. However, on returning to the car I found that the boot wouldn't open and the...

After about an hour I removed the left side trunk liner, the luggage cover and rear lock...

  18. Roof Seal Lubrication on the Current Model

    VW Eos Tech Q&A
    I've seen much here and on VWVortex about the importance of maintaining the roof seals. However, most or all of the postings are quite old and refer to the original version of the car.
