Your vehicle may be equipped with a sliding sunroof or a panorama roof with power tilt/ sliding panel. In this section, the term "sliding sunroof" refers to both types of sliding sunroof.

WARNING

While opening and closing the sliding sunroof, body parts in close proximity could become trapped. There is a risk of injury.

Make sure that no body parts are in close proximity during the opening and closing procedures.

If somebody becomes trapped: Х release the switch immediately, or Х during automatic operation, push the switch briefly in any direction The opening or closing procedure will be stopped.

If children operate the sliding sunroof they could become trapped, particularly if they are left unsupervised. There is a risk of injury.

When leaving the vehicle, always take the SmartKey with you and lock the vehicle. Never leave children unsupervised in the vehicle.

The sliding sunroof is equipped with an automatic reversing feature. If an object blocks or restricts the sliding sunroof during the closing process, the sliding sunroof opens again automatically.

WARNING

The reversing feature does not react: Х to soft, light and thin objects, e.g. small fingers
Х over the last 4 mm of the closing movement Х during resetting Х when closing the sliding sunroof again manually immediately after automatic reversing

Only open the sliding sunroof if it is free of snow and ice. Otherwise, malfunctions may occur.

Do not allow anything to protrude from the sliding sunroof. Otherwise, the seals could be damaged.

Resonance noises can occur in addition to the usual airflow noises when the sliding sunroof is open. They are caused by minor pressure fluctuations in the vehicle interior.

Change the position of the sliding sunroof or open a side window. The noise will be reduced or eliminated.
