1996 Jaguar xj6 sunroof will not close you can hear motor running, how can you manual close it?

If you remove any gear that is coupling it to the motor you should be able to slide it back to where you want. I would put gear back just to hold it in place and keep it from moving. But you do have to replace that gearbox for future operation.

My sunroof is stuck open can i manually close it , and how do i close it if i can. my sun roof works only when it wants to and now i cant get it to close. need car is a 1997 hyundai tiburon. also...

You have a bad motor or bad connections on the motor. The motor is above the headliner. To remove the headliner you must remove everything on the headliner. Next remove all of the trim holding it in place. Carefully pry upward on one side until it is free and the rest can easly be removed.

Sunroof will not close

If the motor is stuck, you can probably hold the switch to the forward position, and smack the roof. This may allow the motor to start working. I don't think there is any way to do it manually.

Ford f150 2001 supercrew cab

This vehicle sunroof can travel past its open point and gets stuck. you can lower the headliner and insert an hex key and crank the glass forward one inch then it will work again. Just don't let it go to far open or it can get stuck again. Also check the drain tray to make sure it is not out of place, if so you need new guides.
