To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Punto GT Sun roof I own a Punto GT with sun-roof. The problem was that from time to time the sunroof would not open. The problem was only on opening the roof. If I opened it manually then it would close and reopen normally. The phenomenon would happen especially on hot days and whenever the car had been under the sun for sometime. I changed the electric motor twice (the car was still within guarantee limits and I did not pay anything) but the problem persisted. Finally I opened the motor myself and found out that it was full of grease. The grease would melt under the sun and would act as an isulator to the rotor of the electric motor. I wiped most of the grease off, leaving enough for the greasing of the motor axles and the problem has been solved ever since.
