Roof issue investigation

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).

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 drove the whole thing to the front by hand to check every thing was alright before connecting the electrics.
Thanks for updating the topic :)

If I understand correctly, the key is to having a smooth and easy to move by hand roof runner and cable drive system. Then having strong original mounts because repaired parts are just not up to the job.

And you may have a few weeks of sun to enjoy your work in :)
