Peugeot 2008: Unlocking the vehicle / Sunroof

The sunroof consists of a movable glass panel that slides over the roof and a blind that can be opened independently. Opening the sunroof automatically opens the blind.

  • To operate the panoramic sunroof, use the button in the roof console.

Use only plastic scrapers to remove snow or ice from the sunroof.

Check the condition of the sunroof seals regularly (presence of dust or deposits, dead leaves, etc.).

If using a car wash, check first that the roof is correctly closed and keep the high-pressure jet at least 30 centimetres from the seals.
