Yep, no probs Dude.
Be careful though around that area - the lock/unlock lines do loop around, so it is easy to cut it at the wrong place, e.g. line to the drivers door.

I didn't even know that the sunroof was connected to smartlock. I can get mine to stay open without the key just by holding the button down for 3 or so seconds straight after i have removed the key. Then i just lock up and walk off.
Does this mean that mine is aftermarket? it seams to be the same one as uniacidz.

anyne know anywhere in melbourne to get mine looked at?
it's the factory/dealer/whatever one, and it decided to go poop last week, had to manual shut it just before it rained, lol, pain in the a** when you don't have the proper manual turn key.

from what i've done a little readig on, it's the motor, as i sometimes here a click from where the manual open/shut bit is when i press the button.
i also tried swearing at it and the death stare, it's just not giving in.

cheers for that, i'll give them a call or throw an email, then see other places around and see what prices are.
otherwise i can always source a secondhand, hopefully come across one soon.
