There is a plastic gear in the drive train that is well known for stripping. A replacement gear is available from http://www.sunroofgears.com/ It comes complete with instructions and is quite easy to do. This will fix the problem, and the new gear will probably outlast the rest of the car!

2003 Kia sorento sunroof- my sunroof is stuck in tilt mode.when I press any of the buttons,it makes a very loud rattling noise. I read somewhere to hold button down for 30 seconds,now its not making loud...


I had this problem and began looking into the solution above, instead we noticed that the motor was really loose. All it needed was to be tightened. We removed the light cover and the entire electronics box to see the motor, which was just two screws then it popped off. Then tightened the two sunroof motor screws, and it worked like new.

My sunroof will not close. I can hear the noise


It sounds like the switch has gone bad or that there is something wrong with the track. If you look on the inside of the sun roof you should be able to see four screws. These screws hold the sunroof in place and to the track. Take those screws out and then the glass. If you look down where the track is when the glass is out and push the button to open and close you should be able to see the track move. If you cant see it move when it is supposed to open pull the switch and see if you are getting power to the open and close side of the switch.

Chevy Tahoe Sunroof is stuck open moves slightly forward and back


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.
