The original roof parts were likely plastic and had a tendency to crack. I recently replaced the tracking ( in my daughters 1997 and it was simple but not easy; but works great. Sunroofdoctor sells rebuilt "modules" with the plastic parts replaced with aluminum parts. About $360 after 'rebate'. Good luck.

    Btw, there are 4 water drain tubes on each corner of the moonroof. If you decide to replace be sure to shoot compressed air through the tubes while they are disconnected and accessible. Two of the ones on my project were plugged with water trapped within which, if this happens, will leak into the car at least ruining the headliner and upholstery. This should be done every few years anyway. Remove glass, grab a strong small flashlight and follow the track back to the corner and shoot air through.

98 saturn sl emergency brake broken the button came off and so did the spring so now we can use the emergency brake

Get a replacement parking brake lever on ebay or at a local junkyard. 92-99 SL1 & SL2 all the same part. Most likely your cables are corroded and frozen so be prepared to get some new cables at a parts store when you go to install your replacement brake lever.

Intermitantly, when i turn the key on my 1999 saturn sl2, theres no engine crank, plenty of battery power, justno cranking, i let it cool of for some time and it fires right up, starter going out?

Could be a starter failing, but more likely a faulty negative battery cable or starter cable connection. Look for corrosion or looseness at the cables. On GM starters, corrosion on solenoid terminals on the starter can often cause these symptoms. On most vehicles over 10 yrs. old, replacing the neg. batt. cable will save many headaches.

The moon roof on my 1996 saturn sl2 not working

I have the same car and had the same problem, when you pull down the head liner you will find the motor for the moon roof. i disconnected the motor so that i could analyze it. i found that the gears in the moon roof motor are made of plastic and most of the gear teeth were chewed off. i disconnected the wireing harness from the motor and left it unplugged, i then pushed the moon roof back into position and tightened the screws to the moon roof. That is the way i left it for the past 2 years, because i was not about to spend the money t fix the motor.

New starter motor looks different from the original

remove the bracket..starter motors are going to a brushless motor
