My 2000 XJ8 Jag's sunroof is leaking on the passenger at the very back. I've noticed that when I close either front doors the sunroof moves up like it is not closed tight. What is the problem?

There are drain tubes fitted to let water run out. The tubes drain out at the rear of the front wheel arches. Check that the tubes are not blocked. The sun roof on my XJ8 is slightly "loose" when closed but is not leaking. Sit in the car and have somebody hose water on the roof to check for the origine of the leak.

My 97 xj6 sunroof is not working it is 1/4-1/2 in from fully closed can I manually close it last bit?

yes. that is if the cables are not completely shredded. your car came with a tool that sort of looks like a figure "S". the roof center panel in front of sunroof pops off. you can then fit the tool into the socket and manually turn until roof is closed. (you can find this info in the owners manual)

How do you time the sunroof motor

Open the sunroof and keep on pushing the open button for 10 seconds. Close it and keep on pushing the close button for 10 seconds. That should do the trick if every thing else in the roof is ok
