Rocking seats

Post by Yolandi2 » Mon Jan 08, 2018 6:40 pm

Hey everyone, just two niggling questions, are the front seats ment to be somewhat insecure? Mine rock a little side to side and forward/back

Also can anyone tell me anything about my sunroof? It's not a tilt and slide flush one, it's just a straight slide open with rails mounted onto of the roof and a little wind deflector at the front but I can't find a photo of another Scirocco with one this style??

I guess your sun roof is an after market one, try searching webasto roof as they do glass sliding sun roofs.

Any markings etc on the roof handle to give a clue of who many of made it?

Found out the roof, it's a donmar skyroof II apparently, or I found one that looks exactly the same

I'll try and get a pic of the seats

Ah, I don't remember seeing these when I put the seats in so it's probably the problem

It's amazing something can be produced sold and shipped from China for just £2.79 and they still make a profit

...Even if it does fall apart the second you look at it, still impressive.
