My 2008 500 lounge has a roller blind for the fixed roof. On hot days like today it works perfectly Ė the roller has the normal spring tension and it goes backwards and forward as it should.

As soon as it gets colder it stops working ! I donít mean proper cold, just less than 20C . What then happens is it looses the spring tension and will only go back about half way. It isnít sticking at all, if you feel inside the roof for the roller that all still turns freely Ė itís just lost its spring so doesnít pull the blind back.

I really donít understand what is happening, itís not sticking so how come the tension only works in hot weather ??!!

Re: 500l

maybe you should use the 500 forum, not the 500L. Guess there are more 500 owners who might contribute.
