The sun roof seal looks a difficult fit to me. It's a steel sliding roof.The seal at the front edge is accessable if partly open but that means thr back edge is then obscured by the headlining.Am i missing something here that will make it an easier job?If anyone has replaced the seal I would be pleased for any advice!

You have to remove the sunroof to change the seal - its pretty easy to do.

Haynes manual :D or polo3.co.uk
