Default Sunroof opening by itself.....

A few days ago my wife and I were backing out of the driveway in the S6. I heard the sunroof open and thought my wife accidentally opened it, while I was looking back. Today, I left work and it did it again. Just opened part way to the vent position. I wasn't near the button, it was 58 degrees? I didn't hit a bump? I have the solar panel sunroof, is this a known issue?

Thanks

Default Ditto...I've had problems where it won't close.

No problems with spontaneous opening. I took mine to the dealer and they fixed it under warranty.

weird, but maybe check if there is any debris trapped in the sliding mechanism.

Default Sunroof opening by itself

First I just want to say that I really appreciate this forum because I used it to solve my issue and if I can help anyone in any way by posting my experience would be well worth it. I recently had an issue with my 2013 Audi A8L. The sunroof would open intermittently by itself after I accidentally opened the sunroof. I thought I had closed it but the inside sunroof shade kept opening back up by itself every couple of minutes while I was driving. This was very alarming and annoying at the same time. I read the forums about this issue and found a post that said to cycle through the whole process of opening and closing the sunroof while holding the open sunroof button continuously. Low and behold it worked for me. After I did that it closed and luckily I have not had the issue in over a week. I hope that helps anyone with their sunroof problem.
