The sunroof's were made by a company called "Golde" and they also supplied VW with them for the Golf, Don't know which model but I have been told told that most of the mechanical bits out of a Golf fits a Cortina steel sun roof.

Have both a Capri and a MkV with a sunroof, if no one fixes you up with the info, l will measure up for comparison tomorrow, but you would have thought they are the same size in the interest of swop ability, l also have a Mk2 Granada with a sunroof, will measure that as well, if that is the same you could get one from a Granada Ghia X saloon as they were electric and that would be a good upgrade.

Never been able to find another that fits there always wrong on one dimension.

 

Always thought someone good with glass fibre could do with making a skin to fit the internals to.

Sheffield, your knowledge far outweighs mine, none are any way near, even have a 86 Orion, miles out, got a Mk2 Golf GTi,  not a chance, some of the cars l measured have one measurement right, then the other is way off, even some look like the corners are not the same radius, looked like it's got to come off a MkV or lV, the latter l couldn't measure as l haven't got one.

Yep they seem to be unique to the MK4/5.

 

30 odd years of maintaining, modding, restoring mainly MK3/4/5/p100's.

 

Mechanisms are as said by globe so parts are shared with be of the period.

Is your sunroof passed its best for repairing, you could joggle pieces in as lining will hide repairs and joggling would make it easier to weld in and if it is off the car, it would be straightforward to lead load.  I do know it's a fine art to set up the roof so that it tilts and slides as it should. At one-time l could tell you of several people breaking  MklV's and MkVs, how times change.
