Looks like the s/roof needs to be put back in its channel so it can easily slide. Try if possible.

I have a Jaguar S Type 2005 model.My Sun Roof only opens half way


First off clean and lubricate the tracks the sun roof operates on, using a good quality lubricant with Teflon in it.

The find the fuse and relay for it, remove the fuse, blow out the receptacle and clean the contacts on the fuse w/a wire brush before re-installing..do the same for the relay, often a bit of corrosion on these parts allows it to operate partially.

1998 toyota rav4 the sunroof won't open the motor runs but the roof acts like its stuck


The tract or cables are broken. High dollar fix. Remove the fuse and forget about it. If it does engage and opens partially, you have water mess in the vehicle.

you may have to strip out the roof lining to gain access to the sunroof component if you cant pull the sun visor free , dont keep pressing the power button as could at the least blow the fuse , at worst burn out the motor

I hv a 99 olds alero and the sunroof is stuck partially open I hit the open and close button it was barely moving now doesn't move at all.. But now when I push the open/close button I can hear the motor...


Sounds like the motor is worn out try applying some finger pressure on the sun roof and actuate the closer button and it should close it until you can pull your roof panneling back to expose the motor to be change

Convertible roof not working properly


Why would the battery be disconnected for front brake pads? Did a garage do this? Srange!!!
Roof sensors and switches out of sync after battery removal. Needs competent technician and GT1 computer to sort out.

Honda CRV-2001 MODEL SUN ROOF WILL NOT OPEN OR CLOSE. Sun roof motor OK, but loud clicking noise evident when power button is operated. Sun Roof stuck in closed position.


caution if it opens you may not be able to close it again, this sounds like the track broke or something in the motor. lets hope its the motor as if its the track then the whole track needs to be replaced, there is no repairing a broken sunroof track.

I've got a '84 Supra and the sunroof does not open and close properly. The motor and switch are fine but the sunroof only closes partially and will not snap shut.


Sun roofs and moon roofs both have spring loaded guides at opposite sides and if they are worn or loose will affect yours from properly closing

Audi 2005 A4 Cabrio...roof stuck partially down. How do I fix?


This has happened to my wife's 2004 A4 Convertible 2x's. I had to read the owner's manual several times to get the job done correctly (pages in the high 70's to low 80's) ...the following is offered from memory: The handle/tool needed to accomplish the task 'manually' is located in the fuse box on the LEFT SIDE of the dashboard. A small flat blade screwdriver will enable you to pry open the fuse cover & gain access to the handle/tool. Slight twist the tool and it comes out easily. Tool is a "T" shaped handle. Once you have the handle/tool IN HAND, simply turn the RED part (only) on the handle until it 'locks' in an open position. Leaves a small space on the handle. Can't recall if you go clockwise or counterclockwise, but it will be evident. Now...move both front seats forward and tilt them to gain access to rear seat. Remove the ski boot cover in middle of the rear seat and put aside. Then, 'click' the interior boot cover panel down to gain access to a 'hole' (about size of a 50 cent piece) in the top of the boot space. This hole allows you to insert (upward) the above mentioned tool into a lock/unlock mechanism in the rear deck just forward of the trunk. The tool needs to be jiggled to go 'all the way' in...you will sense that. Once in, TURN the RED part of the handle to "LOCK" the handle into the mechanism. The tool will hang down by itself. My approach is to 'store' the roof in the open convertible position first. The front portion of the roof should be partially forward as that appears to 'release' a lever within the roof's up/down mechanism to allow you to raise the rear window portion. Thus, lift (with that friend) the rear window portion up and forward (takes some effort). The roof now has a kind of 'clamshell' appearance front & rear. The front may even flop forward but tht's OK. This step exposes the rear deck. Twist the tool to unlock the rear deck. It should click & release and a small space appears enabling you to use hands (that friend again) under it (the deck). Lift the deck up & back until the hydraulics kick in and keep the deck vertically open. Now you are ready to tackle the roof & rear window for storage under the rear deck cover. Get a friend, if possible to help with the lifting...remember, this is a "Manual" job! Once here, gently push back & lower the rear window portion of the roof into the open storage area simultaneously followed by the remainder of the roof itself. Watch fingers for possible pinching in the levers, etc., during this part of operation Hopefully you now have the roof & rear window stored in the area in front of trunk and be able to lower the rear deck to almost closed position. If so, go back to the tool and twist it to 'lock' the deck in place with roof stored. Remove tool from the ski storage area by reversing procedure above. Now comes the "Moment of Truth"! With the ignition turned on and car running, use the roof switch to bring the stored roof up and all the way to the closed position. Don't forget you must keep your finger on that switch until the operation completely finishes. Then, reverse the process to open & store the roof for a good blow dry (drive)!

Sunroof


The sun roof has nylon gears that pulls the roof back and forward when activated. There is one on both sides of the sunroof track in the rear corners of the roof track housing. Unfortunately they are not replaceable by themselves and must be purchased as a unit for the whole roof track system. The cost of the replacement and labor to have it installed (if you can find someone to do it) is up to $1500 so isn't very practical to replace based on the value of the car itself. Better off to just work the broken piece out and manually put roof back in place in shut position and not use anymore, at least that was my experience with the one my daughter owns.
