Title: 1969 w111 280 electric sunroof problem
Post by: rockingchairmotors on April 09, 2017, 15:17:05
Hello

I have a 69 W111 280 with an electric sunroof.  I am having a problem getting the roof to close completely.

I know the W108/109 sedans have a place in the trunk to manually close the roof.  I also have the tool from a sedan to do it.

Does the coupe have a place to close the electrical roof manually?  I have nothing in the trunk.  Where is the manual mechanism located?

Thanks in advance
Jeff

You should have a sun roof motor in the trunk.  The place to fit the tool should be on the drive gear box at the electric motor.

I am starting to work on this car.

Did they ever put the sunroof motor behind the rear view mirror, in the roof compartment?   My car is a low grill 280 and that is where the motor is located.  I have never seen it there in any other car? 

I also do not have the emergency closing mechanism in the trunk.

I will try and post a few pictures. Thanks for the help
