Cars equipped with keyless locking/unlocking* have a touch-sensitive recess on the outer part of the outside door handle.

Place your finger against the touch-sensitive recess on the outside of one of the door handles until the panorama roof and sun blind start moving towards the closed position.

Movement stops if you place your finger against the door handle recess again or once the roof/blind has reached the closed position.

Warning

If the panorama roof is closed with the remote control key, the central locking button or door handle, check that no one risks being trapped.

Important

Check that the panoramic roof is properly closed when closing.

Pinch protection

The panorama roof has pinch protection that is triggered if the glass cover or the sun blind is blocked by an object during closing. In the event of blocking, the glass cover or sun blind is then opened automatically to approx. 50 mm from the blocked position (or to full ventilation position). The pinch protection is also active when the glass cover or sun blind is opened.

It is possible to override the pinch protection when closing has been interrupted e.g. if ice has formed around the glass cover, by continually holding the control pressed forward or down until the glass cover is closed.
