Change the roof slides

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?

I don't have any information on how to do this, sorry :oops:

If you are going to have a go at tackling this job, take photos along the way so you can see how it all goes back together and when its all finished feel free to upload the photos and some words here so others can benefit from your trail blazing work :D

Good Luck!

Hi
I just joined the forum, and have same issue as You. However i managed to find a complete used soft roof incl sliders as a unit.
What i have done until now: Removed the old soft roof -this could be done by dragging the rear screen away from the soft roof part (after having released the hatches holding the rear screen connected to the soft roof part.
Then i have mounted the new soft roof to the exposed rear screen wiring, and mounted the soft roof into the two roof metal bars guiding the sliders during operation of the roof.

Only thing lacking now - however important - is to get the rear screen hatches re engaged to the soft roof part - I have until now not been able to push enough to the soft roof and cable, so the cable become 'short enough' to make the re attach possible.

If you succeeded in replacing your roof slides, you might have en idea/experience regarding this ??

best regards
Keld
