I like a roof that is not designed to fail, it really brightens up my wallet. To be fair, my A5 has a non pano sunroof and it has had zero issues.

its a small price to pay when i have solved two problems. plus, $75 isn't going to be the end of the world and over the 5 year period it is supposed to last (i think it will last much longer with proper care), it will have paid for itself. the alternative was removing the headliner and solving the leak only for it to leak again.. no thanks.

i did pull the sunroof fuse. last thing i need is somebody trying to use the sunroof while its wrapped

i will post pics when i figure out how, all you see is the outline of the sunroof. good enough for government work, as we say

Has anyone successfully repaired theirs? I dont have a warranty and mine leaks when I get it washed, when it rains, or if our neighbor is watering their potted basil plants.

Yes, but the cause of my leakage was limited to the drain line end caps. You can start there and see if you need to go further.

Just got a letter from a law firm for class action lawsuit for leaky sun roof.
Anyone else?

I’m more curious what the letter said. Because their website looks like a scam.

That said, the sunroof issue is absolutely something that should be a class action or have an extended warranty.

Mine's been sitting in the garage since I bought it, hasn't seen any rain but that will change once spring hits. I too feel VW should take care of this issue if we are out of warranty.
