Sunroof manual opening
« on: 14 June 2006, 02:17 AM »
I went to use the emergency manual opening tool as my sunroof is being a little stubborn (think it's been stuck shut for a long time) and the tool just snapped... I guess 26 years sitting in the boot took their toll...
anyone substituted another tool to get this to work?

I haven't done this on a 116, but if it's anything like the 123, you can use the tire lug wrench to turn it as well...
