Sunroof Flex Cable

Hi,

I've been looking through the manual, and I can't understand how to adjust the cable. I've had to replace the cabe and motor, when the roof is closed the new cable is around 1/4 of an inch further forward towards the front of the car than it should be. The car is a 1993 W124 Wagon, all the tube ect is fine.

Thanks for reading

Wild guess - check in EPC that you've got the right part.

i've replaced all the cassette, and control tube I just can't understand the simple bit getting the cable adjusted. The section on the EPC is 77/140

Yeah I've read this post last week, I'm obviousley missing something simple. I rebuilt and replaced the cassette last year. The motor just wore out, so when I replaced with a new one the adjustment was out and I'm struggling to adjust it correctly so the holes in the cable line up with the two screw holes.
