Broke some piece of the Pluriel roof and now it won't close right

If you need help with your C3 Pluriel, that seems specific to the Pluriel (like the roof), ask here. Engine and Transmission problem must be asked in the relevant topic for the problem. The Pluriel shares the same Engine, Gearbox, Brakes and Transmission as the other C3 models (see above for the correct section).
Forum rules
Questions about the Pluriel Roof system can be asked here
No engine, gearbox or running gear questions
Think: Pluriel roof and rear window jobs
Did you know the Pluriel shares the engines, gearboxes, electrical, audio system, suspension, steering and running gear with the early C3?

Hello everyone, I'm a new driver and recently acquired a Citroen C3 Pluriel from my brother that now lives abroad.
The thing is, the trunk wasn't opening and I was told opening the roof would solve this. I opened the roof (with difficulty) to the middle and I couldn't open it all neither the trunk, as I panicked I tried to close the roof and it wasn't working, did some pressure and accidentally broke something on the right side of the roof (some kind of slide).
Found later that with a simple smack in the trunk it would close normally and now I'm left with a car with its roof not completely closed and that could have water get inside.
Could someone tell me which parts are sold and where and some guidance to fix it?

These Pluriel diagrams were dotted across the forum and now they are in one place. If you can say the number and which diagram, I will see what the part number is for you.

T, U, V and W come as a complete unit called 'interslide'

8401.HV INTERSLIDE LEFT

8401.HW INTERSLIDE RIGHT

They were changed in production at some point and the only place to get the set, new would be a Citroen parts department.

Did you find a replacement?

None of the pluriel roof parts are particularly easy to repair, I guess it depends on your skills on repairing things that shouldn't be repaired.
