According to the Robert Bentley service manual you need to fab. yourself a "special tool" to detach the "trim spring" to close the sunroof. I haven't had much luck with it.

#19 of 25 1985 scirocco idle problems
Jul 22, 2005 (9:44 pm)
I recently bought this 85 rocco and it has been sitting on and off for approx. 2 years. Besides that it runs pretty good. I have just done an oil change and plugs, and distributer cap/rotar. Also changed the air filter and as I was doing that the control box that hooks up to the air intake broke. The springs just flew out. I bought a new one and installed it. with out the control box the car will not idle and you have to constently give it gas and clutch to keep it running when you stop at a light or just stop in general. Long story short after putting in the new control box it still does not want to idle unless you are holding your foot on the gas pedal. Do you have an suggestions on what this could be? Ive adjusted the knob that fluctuates the idle speed but it did not help. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Finally got the sunroof out of the car, one cable broke off the glide (as Bentley calls it). Bentley manual is hard to follow, I just took out screws until the whole thing came loose and slid forward out of the hole in the roof. The problem now is to get a new cable and slider for the side that broke, or repair the old one. The cable has a metal rod end to which the plastic slide attaches (this connection broke, no wonder, it has the smallest cross section of the whole part), and repair is probably stop-gap at best, small plastic parts don't repair well. Anyone know of a source (besides VW who hold their old parts very dear) for sunroof cable and slide?
Best regards, Jürgen Amtmann (jurgena)

hi, just thinking of getting some alloys for an H reg (UK) (1990?) GT2 scirocco. was wondering if anyone could tell me the pcd needed, and the best/recommended widths and diameters to use? i assume golf wheels from the same time will fit?

I have recently bought a 84 storm that has not been used for about six years. I have serviced it and it runs very well. The PROBLEM is that sometimes the car will not start if the engine is warm. I had the fuel line cleaned and a new fuel tank fitted (old one was perforated), in addition the revs vary dratically when iddling (700-1400 rpm).
Any ideas welcome
