Pluriel - tensioning the vinyl roof

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).

Did you know the Pluriel shares the engines, gearboxes, electrical, audio system, suspension, steering and running gear with the early C3?

Hello.. I have owned a 2003 Pluriel 1.4 petrol for about 5 years.. It was very low mileage and in great condition when i bought it.. Over the years i have maintained it regardless of cost and loved its general reliability and fun.. I have a small issue with the powered roof, it works flawlessly (tempting providence) but has started to become a bit slack.. I determined that the fabric was starting to come away from the front header and also the rear. the front was relatively easy to access and fix, the rear looks a bit more involved. There seems no way to access to fix the fabric back, the area being covered by a plastic trim, this trim exists above the rear screen. Can anyone help in informing me as to how this trim can be removed to allow access to glue the roof fabric back onto the cross member.. I do not want to damage anything going in ham-fisted.. Thanks for any help :)
