    the sun roof is stuck half open. Pushed the button for 20 sec. to reset and nothing happened. Checked the fuse and it is good. I do not here any noise when I press the open or close button. Is there a manual crank and how do I get to it?

The motor is accessed after removing the interior roof light console. I have to warn you that Freelander sunroofs have a lot of problems. To change the motor, I think you will have to remove the roof lining as well with all that entails. The Land Rover Workshop manual has all the detail whereas the Haynes manual does not.
Try for an exploded view of the sunroof.

My sunroof will not open i press the button and nothing happens I checked the fuse and it was ok

if the sunroof makes no attempt to open, and the dome light does not dim when you press the switch, chances are the switch is defective. If the motor is bad, or the roof jammed you should see the dome light dim and blink when you attempt to open it.

yes, the remote has a function that if the unlock button is held down the windows and sunroof will open automatically. Perhaps you have a remote that intermittently sticks causing this concern.

The sunroof motor is right above the open/close button inside the headliner. You are going to have to remove the headliner to replace it. Just a couple of screws and a connector from there.

2002 hse freelander sunroof motor buzzing at certain points

My sunroof has played up as well and it is all down to lack of use. The lubrication LR use for the guides and the drive mechanism appears to harden over time causing the mechanism not to work correctly. There is a light oil available from LR to lubricate things but in my case the lubrication already there was like a grease so after opening the roof and then protecting everything with cloths, I applied WD40 through its nozzle to the sliders and the spiral drive mechanism and then operated the sunroof a large number of times giving it a manual helping hand. Eventually it worked ok.

Recently bought a Hyundai Coupe 52 plate. The sunroof doesn't work. When you press the close button it tries to do something as you can hear the click from a relay or something. If you press the open, up...

You will have to trouble shot the motor assembly, They use a tiny electric motor in these and they are prone to failure. Access the motor and operate the controls, with a 12 volt test light check to see that power is sent to the motor on at least one wire, the wire that receives the 12 volts will reverse depending on what the glass is doing, opening or closing.
