Sunroof problem just happened to me too, first "hot" day, outside temp like 80-85. As best I could tell, you can't turn it from (open) to (close) and immediately (pull down). It only worked when I finally stopped and let the sunroof cycle through once.

So to make it clear:

1. Turn from (open) to (close)
2. Allow it to malfunction and retract back into the open position
3. With the button still in the (close) position, just pull down and it should close

I was only able to do this once because it no longer malfunctioned after I did this so I don't know if the dial has to be held down, or just briefly pulled down (my best guess, held down. It doesn't hurt to just hold it down till close)
Thank you! The sunroof issue happened to me this weekend. By doing these three steps it saved me from going crazy. Problem solved.

Well I had to use the Allen wrench to close it... We'll see if it sealed properly. Hopefully I can get it to the dealer soon.

Somehow someway that spring popped out of its housing... The car is at VW now. Already $107 just to get the diagnostics

Guys I know it is an old topic but I have an issue with my sunroof on my mkvi r 13
Sunroof want open
When you try to open you can just hear a sound like clicking in empty

This saved me too. Sunroof got stuck on the way to see the dentist this morning.
I was pissed off the whole time I was in there getting my teeth cleaned.

Thanks to everyone who posted beneficial info here!!!

BTW... I saw a similar post on VWVORTEX and someone said that doing the turn-key "close all the windows function worked like a charm for them as well.

These sunroofs are sensitive. The cause is usually dirt.
