Hi there;

Hey broken glass in the sunroof is not as big of a deal as you might think. The glass is available from Lexus & concidering where it is coming from it isn't that expensive. When you get the new piece of glass you'll see how it is bolted on. You simply rmove the trim around the glass mount with a flat pry bar & undo the mounting bolts, noting the alignment shims befor you remove the old glass mounts & be sure to put them back in where they come from. Take you time & pay close attention to those things & you will be able to change it with out an issue!
P.S.; you may also be able to find the glass from a local auto wreckers for a fraction of the dealer price.
Good Luck Hope this helps.
Farrout!

My 2000 Lexus RX 300 Sunroof is stock and is not closing. electric motor seem to be working but is stock in one position. any idea how to fix this sunroof?


I have the same problem..... took my 2000 RX300 to the dealer - was told they need to replace the motor and the tracks and quoted me a price of $4500.00...... NO THANK YOU.... This dealer will not sell parts for this to local garages. Can't believe they can get away with that. Since I don't really us it a mechanic told me to take it to a glass company and just have them seal it closed to stop leaks.

Sunroof cable broke how to close it


remove overhead console, then remove the metal bracket, then you'll have access to the sunroof motor bolts. Remove the motor and you'll probably see that the cable is damaged. Use a pair of wire cutters and cut it out of the way and then feed the cable back into the groove/slot( you'll have to move the sunroof by hand while doing this). Then put the motor back in and turn the key on to opperate the sunroof closed. That should hold you over untill a replacement part is found. Very easy to do with a phillips and a 10mm socket & wratchet.

Sunroof cable broke how to close it


Hi- Are you talking about the power cable or the pulley cable?

The glass runs on a track. If it is not jammed can you pull the glass forward? If not then- they are 4 screws that hold the sunroof in the housing. Loosen and tip the glass and try to pull forward.

How to fixs a jam sunroof


Thats a hard one. I currently build and have installed sunroofs for 20yrs. the problem is an electric motor keeps you from moving the glass if there is no power. If power is present and the motor can not move the roof then there is usually a broke component. I have seen were people have tried to break in by pulling up on the glass and this will break the plastic locking mechanism. Dealer will have to get replacement parts to repair. Should be under warranty. Hope this sends you in the right direction.
