SOURCE: removing a timing belt on a 2003 xterra

If you have a 3.3L engine, this is know as an interference engine. That means if the engine is running when the timing belt breaks or strips its teeth, the lower part of the engine brings the pistons up and they hit the top end of the engine bringing the valves down. The two sections then interfere with each other and your wallet at the same time. The valves bend when they smack the pistons and the engine will need a head job as a result. A mechanic can confirm the damage with a test called a cylinder leakdown test. It sounds like you will have more than a timining belt needed at this point.

SOURCE: how do i remove my sunroof in a 2002 nissan xterra

You have a "Flip Up" sunroof. The lever at the back of the sunroof that allows you to flip it open detaches from the headliner when you wish to remove the glass. Once you have the latch detached from the headliner you can push the glass up past the normal 3" or so that it normally opens when you flip it up. You will need to stand on the running board while opening it fully perpendicular to the roof of the car, (striaght up and down). Then the glass will slide out, I forget which way, but either towards the passenger side or the drivers side and voila, you have removed your sunroof!

My 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited sun roof does not want to open.


If your motor is audible and your fuses and connectors are okay, you may have to take a close look at the plastic gear parts up in the roof. The nylon parts do wear out since they are in the roof and more exposed to different temperatures. If any of that mechanism fails then your sunroof will stop working even if the motor is still good. It is a bit of a PITA to get to it since you will have to remove the headliner to get at the mechanism and then identify the worn part and replace it CAUTION: The sunroof system is timed from the factory so that the motor shuts off automatically when the sunroof window reaches a certain position. Extreme care must be taken when removing the motor, timing may be thrown off causing possible damage to the sunroof system. Anytime the motor is removed from the sunroof assembly the sunroof glass panel must be in the FULLY CLOSED POSITION or the unit will be out of timing. The drive motor cannot be reset to the park position after being removed.
CAUTION: The sunroof motor should only be powered through the vehicle battery and sunroof wire harness. Applying power to the sunroof motor leads will cause failure of the control module.

Sunroof in 2002 Chevy Impala won't close, is there


Sorry, no. Pull down on the headliner at the front of the window and you can see the motor. Cable is most likely broke or motor bad. Remove all the columns front, middle, and back. Remove the headliner. Then you can access the motor and regulator for the sunroof. The columns and headliner just pop off.

I may have a broken cable on a stuck open sunroof,


No, you can't. Broken cable is a regulator replacement. You have to remove the headliner. Remove all the side bezels first. They just pop off.

Is there an manual override for an stucked open


No there isn't. You can do what the other guy said, reinitialize it. But if it just stoped working, it could be the motor or the regulator. Either one you have to replace the whole unit. To do this you have to remove the headliner, which also you have to remove all the column bezels. They just pop off. Be careful with the headliner, as it will break. Made out of cardboard.
