WARNING

If you do not reset the sliding sunroof after a malfunction or voltage supply interruption, then the reversing function will malfunction or not work. The sliding sunroof closes with increased or maximum force. Parts of the body could be trapped in the closing area in the process. This poses an increased risk of injury or even fatal injury.

In such or similar situations always make sure that no parts of the body are in the closing area. Always reset the sliding sunroof after a malfunction or voltage supply interruption.

Do not raise the sliding/tilting sunroof if you have fitted a roof carrier. Otherwise, the sliding/tilting sunroof will hit the roof carrier.

This could damage both the sliding/tilting sunroof and the roof carrier.

Do not transport objects that protrude out of the sliding/tilting sunroof or rear-compartment sliding sunroof. You could otherwise damage the respective sliding sunroof.

../../../../global/pictures_mb/symb_ruf.png

Do not open the sliding sunroof in the rear if there is snow or ice on the roof, as this could result in malfunctions.

../../../../global/pictures_mb/symb_info.png

When the sliding sunroof is open, resonance noise can occur, as well as the usual airflow noise. These are caused by low-pressure fluctuations in the vehicle interior. Adjust the position of the sliding sunroof or open a side window slightly. This will reduce or eliminate the noises.

Your vehicle may be equipped with a sliding sunroof, and a sliding sunroof in the rear compartment. Both sliding sunroofs are fitted with an automatic reversing feature. If an object obstructs or restricts a sliding sunroof whilst it is closing, the sliding sunroof automatically opens again.

The sliding sunroofs must be reset if there has been a malfunction or an interruption in the voltage supply more.
