The first day I had my Jaguar X-Type, I noticed the sunroof wouldn’t close completely. The glass panel would slide forward, but wouldn’t lift into the closed position without some manual adjustment. This is a common problem, and Jaguar has an easy fix that doesn’t require any technical or mechanical knowledge. Just follow the directions below to recalibrate your X-Type sunroof to the proper closed position.

  1. Press the sunroof switch forward to move the sliding roof panel into the tilted position.
  2. Release the sunroof switch.
  3. Press and hold the sunroof switch forward until the sliding roof panel moves slightly. This may take 30 seconds or more.
  4. Release the sunroof switch.
  5. Immediately press and hold the sunroof switch in the forward position. The sliding roof panel will move down and rearward to the open position, and then forward into the closed position. Do not release the sunroof switch until the sliding roof panel has stopped completely.
  6. Your sunroof panel should now be aligned.
