Damage to the motor or system components could occur.

NOTICE
The sunroof cannot tilt when it is in the slide position but can be slid while in a tilt position.

WARNING
• Never adjust the sunroof or roller blind while driving. This could result in loss of control and an accident that may cause death, serious injury, or property damage.
