Comfort position

In some models, the wind noises in the car’s interior are lowest when the glass sunroof is not fully open. In these models, the automatic function initially only opens the glass sunroof up to this comfort position.

Jam protection system

Concept
The jam protection prevents objects or body parts from becoming jammed between the roof and glass sunroof while the glass sunroof is clos‐ing.

General information
If a resistance or blockage is detected while the glass sunroof is closing, the closing operation is interrupted once the roof reaches the half-open position, or it is stopped when closing from the tilted position.

Closing from the open position without jam protection

In case of danger from the outside or if icing might prevent normal closing, proceed as follows:

  1. Close all doors.
  2. Push the switch forward past the resistance point and hold.
    The glass sunroof closes with limited jam protection. If the closing force exceeds a specific threshold, closing is interrupted.
  3. Push the switch forward again past the resistance point and hold until the glass sunroof closes without jam protection. Make sure that the closing path is clear.
