Improper use of the power sunroof can result in serious personal injury.
  • Always make sure that no one is in the way of the power sunroof when it is closing.
  • Always take the key with you when you leave the vehicle.
  • Never leave children or disabled persons in the vehicle – particularly if they have access to the vehicle key. Unsupervised use of the remote control vehicle key makes it possible to lock the vehicle, start the engine, turn on the ignition and operate the sunroof.
  • You can still open or close the power sunroof for several minutes after you switch off the ignition, as long as the driver or front passenger door has not been opened.


  • To help prevent damage, remove ice and snow from the sunroof before opening it in winter weather.
  • Always close the sunroof before leaving the vehicle or if it begins raining. If the sunroof is open, rain could enter the vehicle interior and cause extensive damage to the electrical system. This could result in further vehicle damage.

Remove leaves and other objects from the sunroof guide rails regularly either by hand or using a vacuum cleaner.

If the Panoramic sunroof malfunctions, pinch protection does not function properly. See an authorized Volkswagen dealer or an authorized Volkswagen Service Facility.
