Question about 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
The switch is brokin and the motor is out. I don't have the money to fix it right now. any way to lower the sunroof by hand
I had this same problem. I am working from memory, so this might not be totally accurate.
The motor for the sun roof is located right above the switch. Take a flathead and pop the switch out, the whole trim comes out, not just the button!
The headliner is held in place by velcro around the sunroof, and held up by the trim pillars in the front and the top trim above the doors, loosen all this so you can pull the headliner down enough to get at the motor.
If I am not mistaken this motor has a straight-through shaft with a notch in one end, use a screwdriver and turn said shaft until closed.
I got lucky and found an exact match of my '98 monte in the junkyard and pulled the entire assembly out of the car to replace mine. Hope this helps.
