2005 Phaeton slide issue

My slide has an electric motor attached to gearbox.
I arrived at my destination and started out with the slide when it made a grinding noise and stopped, after traveling on about an inch.
It totally retracts but will not move past that inch or so.

I would have someone push the button to extend while you are under the coach and see if you can determine the cause. You may have a bolt that has worked out of the gear linkage and it is hitting the frame. Good luck and keep us posted.

I had the exact same problem on my 2005 Phaeton. The pin that holds the gear on the shaft had backed out and was hitting the frame. Drove the pin back in and problem solved.
