VW sunroof come with a manual crank tool located inside the sunroof motor assembly behind the cover. Use that to manually crank it back to the stowed position and have it checked for cause of malfunction.

My sunroof won't shut properly..moves to semi open position


sunroofs are a bear to fix, even for a trained technician, usually the head line needs to come out so you can see what is going on under there. Open the sunroof and see if you can see anything stuck in the channels. sometimes you can remove the glass and see the problem but I would not advise anyone who is not trained to mess with a sunroof.

The Vermeulen Hollandia tilt and slide sunroof on my 1996 Subaru Impreza has stuck open. We swapped the fuse for another one in the car and it closed. However, when we tried to open it again it stuck


First, were the fuses that you replaced the first BLOWN sunroof fuse with the same size? Example, 5 or 10 or 20amps...I am going to assume they were the same or you probably would have burned up the sunroof motor or just blown the replacement fuse real quick. Can you help the motor by pressing the palm of one or both of your hands against the inside of the sunroof glass and push the sunroof button while trying to help the sunroof slide back with your hand or hands. (Obviously if you use both hands someone else will have to push the sunroof button unless you have an extra arm and hand) If it slides back with the help of your hands, either the sunroof is sticking against the slide or the motor is worn down and just doesn't have enough strength to move it anymore. You could try to use a light coating of oil on the slides where the sunroof touches as it slides back and forth. Something like WD-40 preferabley but you could even use any motor oil, worst case "Cooking Oil". Good luck with my suggestions!!

1996 Jaguar xj6 sunroof will not close you can hear motor running, how can you manual close it?


If you remove any gear that is coupling it to the motor you should be able to slide it back to where you want. I would put gear back just to hold it in place and keep it from moving. But you do have to replace that gearbox for future operation.

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.
