How do I fix the sunroof that wont close


Sounds like the timing is out. Pull the headliner down enough so that you can get to the motor. Close the sunroof and allow it to stop where it wants to. Then remove the bolts holding the motor on, pull the motor out of the way of the gears and push the sunroof closed. Then remount the motor. It should work correctly after that.

Sunroof wont open


I have a 203 Volvo S80 and the sunroof wont open. New fuse for sunroof, no power or movement adjustment. Could this be a burnt out motor?

Sunroof will not close.

2003 jetta sunroof wont open.


good evening to you and welcome to fixya

a couple of ideas for you to try, not sure maybe you have already tried, but yo might use some wd-40 and spray the sliding track and back into the motor area. you might also check the motor that runs the sunroof it could have to high of ohm resistence. not sure if you are hearing a whining noise when you try to operate the sunrood or not, is the noise consistent with the glass opening and once the glass stops moving then do you hear any noise from the motor or anything, or is it just quiet? let me know so i can try to help you out the best i can. thank you for using fixya.

My sunroof has opened and now it won't close. Any clues?


hi sounds like a faulty sunroof relay keeping the motor running it may well have blown the fuse or burned the motor out if you connected it back up and it doesn,t work at all but should be able to turn the sunroof back manually look on the sunroof motor there should be sometthing like a slot for a large screwdriver or a bolt head of sorts just wind it back and then check the relays and fuses if your switch is a electronic one make a make shift one and try [simple switch]on and off as this is delicate circiutery and the slightest short can destroy it best of luck yates210456
