Question about 1997 Volvo 850

1996 850 sunroof weather stripping

I opened my sunroof and drove for awhile .When I went to close it a 2 foot piece of weather stripping fell off onto my lap . It looks exactly like a rubber winshield blade but much longer. It has that groove on each side that you would find on a blade. I can't figure out where it came from.
Thanks for any help

Marc, Sounds like you need some new weather strip and an adjustment. Try rockauto for the seals.

Lincoln ls sunroof


sounds like its a slight adjustment . There is 3 torque screws on the left and right side that you must loosen . Use a silicone lube to spray or rub on the sunroof weather stripping . place roof even or dead flush with the body of the car and tighten in the close position

I have water getting inside when it rains on the back floor its a 2002 pontiac bonneville is ther any way to fix it when i go to car wash it leaks in


I'm assuming the vehicle has a sunroof, if so you'll need to be sure there are no obstructions like leaves or small sticks keeping the sunroof from completely closing. If the sunroof is closing properly it may be time to replace the weather stripping seal around the sunroof to get the leak stopped. Please rate this answer, thanks.

Okay....the sunrood will open but will not close. Do I need a new switch or part?


I have a 1992 4 runner that had the same problem. I had completely stripped out the manual close screw because friends kept opening it thinking it was the light switch.
There is a safety switch you have to push to make the sunroof open. Mine had broken inside and the plastic piece was keeping the close switch from completing the circuit. A relatively easy fix for an incredibly annoying problem.

My Bmw e-36 sunroof doesnt open it makes a load clicking sound, we have changed the motor in the sunroof but still doesnt work


check for any obstructing rain/weather strips along the short sides of the sun roof that may be obstructing the glass, another test you can do is where the sunroof switch is located there is a greater piece of the headliner that you can pry off. there you will see the motor of the sunroof. Use a 7mm alan tool to manually open the sunroof so you can observe any obstructions.

How do I fix a leaking sunroof?


I beleive the issue may be more the drains from around the sunroof. The factory sunroof typically have some small drain or weep holes to allow rain water to drain away (eaier to get rid of the water then hold it back) with the sunroof fully open look for these small drain holes and try running a fine wire thru them to clear any possible existing obstruction(s) If this is not the case I'd have to guess that the weather stripping has worn and weathered and would need replacement.
I hope this mau have assisted you,
Tom

Sunroof stuck open


find the wires to the sunroof and strip them and find another power source perferaby the cars battery it would work but once closed leave it closed, you have a bad relay and no power going to the sunroof motor, this usally happens when used vigorously
