Vox,Hi and welcome. As you have discovered, there is a mass of information here if you use the search option, so much info that there's not so much new now that's not already been covered. I'll let the admins comment on thread 'etiquette' for generic open questions. I always try to respect the original poster to a thread which should move through stages of discussion and contributions relevant to their problem without getting off topic or hi-jack and hopefully there's a solution and happy ending for them. If threads get too long IMHO I find them hard to work through whilst the 'twists & turns' can be different for each fault scenario as others jump in with different problems and EOS age.
This thread title is rather generic as most peoples EOS roofs don't work when they come here for help, but it's an easy title to find for those seeking one solution to all their problems (which there isn't). Somebody else can jump in, but to avoid a long confusing thread I'd start a new one changing the title slightly. This respects the original thread starter who may still have their problem unresolved. An example of a similar thread starter title might be 'My EOS roof leaks, how do I fix it'? Obviously generic and could apply to many threads already started and still open. Thinking some more, I can see why some site admins close threads with a happy ending to avoid the convolution problem.
Hay Steve i have a 2007 eos. My top is stuck open like 3 inches. ...i was waiting on traffic and decided to put my top down when it was part way Open i got a break in traffic i decided to cross the road. Now my top is stuck open any ideas?Hi I am the recent proud owner of a 2006 EOS 1.6 FSI (UK model). I bought the car knowing that it had a roof problem, but everything else worked, so I decided to buy and try to fix it.
The roof button sends back the sunroof, drops the four windows, releases the bootlock and releases the rear window locks and the pump struggles in the boot for a few seconds, the boot does not lift, the rear window does not lift either, then I get the message Workshop, Close Roof !. I have checked the wiring to the pump solenoids and to the pump and check each solenoid individualy and all appears ok. I have also had the codes read and they are extensive ! But most point to the rear deck sensor and the right hand side of the rear window sensor..
I have just ordered my own fault code reader 11.11. but this is where I am at.
Oh and I have release the pistons on the two accessible cylinders in the rear windows to see if I can move it manually, but to no avail, it is solid, even when the two lower hooks release it briefly... ???
Oh and sometimes the sunroof fails to operate, even when using it's own button. The relay in the headlining clicks though.. This could be an overheating problem through continually trying the roof ????
Rear parking sensors and speed sensors appear to work fine.
Hi can you send pictures im having same issueWell, after 6 weekends I have a a working roof ! Loved every frustrating moment of it. Such a sense of achievement. Many many thanks to you VOXMAGNA. Didn't actually need any parts at all! All turned out to be a corroded broken wire going to the VW boot latch! Because I bought the car with the roof not working I did not know that the bootlid or trunk for the USA pulls itself down electrically. Mine didnt until I fixed the broken wire! I have loads of photos and will gladly pass on my knowledge to anyone wanting to repair their faulty roofs.. Regards Steve and thanks again Voxmagna.
"Well after 6 weekends I have a working roof! I enjoyed every frustrating moment. Such a sense of accomplishment. Many thanks to you VOXMAGNA. In fact she didn't need any part! It all turned out to be a corroded broken wire going to the VW boot latch! Since I bought the car with the non-functioning roof, I was unaware that the trunk lid or trunk for US lowers electrically. Mine didn't until I fixed the broken wire! I have loads of photos and will gladly pass on my knowledge to anyone looking to fix their bad roofs. Cheers Steve and thanks again Voxmagna.Bene, dopo 6 fine settimana ho un tetto funzionante! Mi è piaciuto ogni momento frustrante. Un tale senso di realizzazione. Molte grazie a te VOXMAGNA. In realtà non aveva bisogno di alcuna parte! Tutto si è rivelato essere un filo rotto corroso che andava al fermo del bagagliaio VW! Poiché ho acquistato l'auto con il tetto non funzionante, non sapevo che il cofano del bagagliaio o il bagagliaio per gli Stati Uniti si abbassano elettricamente. Il mio non l'ha fatto finché non ho riparato il filo rotto! Ho un sacco di foto e trasmetterò volentieri le mie conoscenze a chiunque voglia riparare i propri tetti difettosi. Saluti Steve e grazie ancora Voxmagna.
Ciao sapresti dirmi qual era il filo rotto? Ho lo stesso tua problema... Grazie
