  1. 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...
  2. Potential Sunroof Problem Waiting to Happen

    VW Eos Tech Q&A
    Hi, Can anyone help me out with this? I tried greasing the sunroof rails with white spray lithium, made it a little better but didn't really fix nothing. No issues on sunroof or the roof operation, but this is making me nervous. Thank you
  3. Exploding Sunroof

    VW Eos Q&A
    I've read several old threads about exploding sunroofs but they all seemed very old. I was parked as my wife got into the passenger seat, shut her door and the sunroof exploded! The glass shattered and seemed to push up as if there was pressure coming from the sunroof motor making sure the glass...
  4. Sunroof motor - replacement part?

    VW Eos Tech Q&A
    Like many on here, my sunroof motor has stripped its gear and needs replacing, along with all the fun of checking/lubricating/replacing the mechanism it drives. Big whoop. The problem is that even if I can get a new motor from the dealer, it's silly money, so I've been trying to source one...
  5. Proper Sunroof Front Seal Positioning

    VW Eos Q&A
    I recently bought a 2007 EOS. So far I love it. I have been reading up on and slowly getting into the maintenance routines concerning the rough. I have a front roof seal that is a bit wavy. Some sticks up higher than the roof, some fairly even with a slight slant downward toward the sunroof...
  6. Rain & Leaks

    VW Eos Q&A
    Happily, my 2012 Eos has never leaked, and I have krytoxed it twice so far. Once at about 6 months and again at about a year. However, there are a couple of situations which do allow for some drips... 1. When the car has been out in the rain, opening the door always allows several drops of...
  7. Sunroof greasing

    D.I.Y. (Do It Yourself)
    Hi all, I am a new and happy owner of an EOS 2007. The roof works well, (I already used KRYTOX on all the rubber seals.) but the sunroof somtimes when operating makes some creaking noise, and in one (middle) position slow done just for a moment. Not a critical problem (still) but annoying. I...
  8. Creaking sunroof

    Interior & ICE
    Hi there I'm a new guy on here as I've only picked up my Eos a week or so ago. It's a black March 2010 model. It's an SE with a pile of upgrades. I love the car, but the one thing that lets it down is the creaking sunroof. It is difficult to describe the noise other than creaking. If I put...
