Opening of front glass panel can be preselected using rotary knob -1-.

Opening glass panel to the so called comfort position -4-, prevents to a large extent wind noise while driving, which can occur when roof is fully open.

Glass panel can be tilted and closed using pull and push function on rotary knob.

Sun blind opening button -2- and sun blind closing button -3- are integrated into rotary knob.

The panoramic sliding roof is equipped with a force limitation (anti- trap) mechanism. If the glass panel encounters an obstruction while closing from tilting or sliding position, it will open automatically.

In addition, there is an emergency closure function. If problems occur during closure, panoramic sliding roof can be forced to close by pulling rear end of rotary switch. Rotary switch must thus be in "Sliding sunroof closed" position.
