    mine will not close all the way, I have about a 10 inch gap and when it rains the liner gets wet if I don't keep it covered. I think it's off track, need help getting it back on track

It sounds like it just needs to be reinitialized. Turn your key to the on position with motor off and hold the up/full vent button down for at least 30 seconds or until your sunroof either clicks or goes to the full vent position. That should fix your problem.

How do you reset sunroof in a 2001 Monte Carlo with 3400 model I


check fuse and relay if good than possible motor ot track problem their should be a mechanical bypass that will let you close it if stuck open the following information is courtesy of monte carlo forum
To check the condition of your original sunroof guides:
  1. Gl*** in closed position.
  2. Locate & remove 3 torx bolts on each side of sunroof glass. Lift glass out of sunroof opening & set aside in a safe place.
  3. Locate "J" shaped cover plate at front of sunroof track assembly. Remove 2 torx bolts from each cover plate.
  4. Lift up bracket to remove.
  5. Inspect the plastic guides on each side. The sunroof cables attach to guides on front outer corner. Inspect this area closely for damage.
  6. Do not operate the sunroof with the J plates removed.
Troubleshooting:
If the sunroof guides are not broken & the glass is a uniform height along the rear edge your problem may be a stripped gear inside the motor. The motor has a manual override:
  1. Get access to the motor by removing the map light/switch console or lowering the front of the headliner.
  2. Insert a large standard screwdriver into the nylon bushing at the center of the motor hub. Push up & turn the screwdriver to manually move the sunroof glass. If the unit will fully open & close manually, you most likely only need a replacement motor.

If your sunroof is stuck in the open position follow these steps to get it closed:
  1. Remove the glass.
  2. Try to close the unit without the glass. Many times one side will still be operational and close correctly.
  3. Try to slide the inoperable lift arm forward. If it moves, slide it forward until it stops.
  4. You now need to slide the original plastic guide forward to lower the arm to the closed position. Using a standard screwdriver, push it forward. The lift arm should begin to lower.
  5. If the lift arm will still not fully lower, remove the J plate as explained above, sometimes the sunroof cable will need to be lifted up to allow the guide to fully slide forward.
  6. Reinstall glass.

Tip

2002 Jaguar XType Sun-roof one-touch operations reset


I had this issue and found the solution around, worth sharing and it takes 30 seconds: <br /> <span> <li>Press the sunroof switch forward to move the sliding roof panel into the tilted position.</li> <li>Release the sunroof switch.</li> <li>Press and hold the sunroof switch forward until the sliding roof panel moves slightly. This may take 30 seconds or more.</li> <li>Release the sunroof switch.</li> <li>Immediately press and hold the sunroof switch in the forward position. The sliding roof panel will move down and rearward to the open position, and then forward into the closed position. Do not release the sunroof switch until the sliding roof panel has stopped completely.</i></li> <li>Your sunroof panel should now be aligned.</li></span>

My sunroof won't shut properly..moves to semi open position


sunroofs are a bear to fix, even for a trained technician, usually the head line needs to come out so you can see what is going on under there. Open the sunroof and see if you can see anything stuck in the channels. sometimes you can remove the glass and see the problem but I would not advise anyone who is not trained to mess with a sunroof.

Why will 06 jaguar s-type sunroof not completely close -stuck?


most likely they control mechanism is a bit stiff/dry , if the roof will move forward spray wd40 up each side runners etc go back and forwards a bit at a time ,this should lubricate the mechanism and hope fully save ypou having the roof stripped out to solve the problem

My 05 Tahoe sunroof won't close fully, it leaves about an inch open. I tried to reinitialize the sunroof, but it must be a mechanical issue. Something on the driver's side seems to be binding, which pops...


well your best bet is to go to a pro this is not something you can do at home the sun roof needs to come down to be serviced not easy cause it does wiegh quite a bit and most of the roof needs to be taken apart some what costly aswell sorry to say
