This is my 1st post here so hello to you all
I am here for some help with my sunroof. I have a 53 plate mini one - i bought it in 2006 and have had nothing but probs that my dealer seems unable or perhaps unwilling to help me with.
I am now out of warranty as i only got 1 year with buying the car as a cherished mini but last week in the glorious sunshine my sunroof got stuck in the open position. It opened perfectly well and smoothly and then when i tried to close it it tried to close, moved a few inches and then took itself back to the fully open position again.
i called my dealer for advise and they told me to bring it in and they would grease it for me. they apparently tried that and it didn't work. they now want to change me over £1200 (worst case scenario) for the cassette and/or motor!
i paid them £20 to force it closed and remove the fuse and brought it home!
I have heard rumoirs that there was TSB released for this fault but i cant find anything to support this. do any of you guys know if this is correct or if there is anything else i can do?
we are looking at trading next year and i am gutted that this has happened now.
we have also had issues with rattles and gears that i wont go into but are unresolved as the dealer just fobbed me off!
Thanks for your help in advance...
