Mazda3 Sunroof Adjustments & Repairs


Folks -

The "gearbox" is unfortunately under the headliner with no easy access. If you are also experiencing a clicking sound when the motor is activated, the regulator track had slipped position and will need to be reset.

Removing the map light assembly (process below) may help in your initial diagnosis, you can feel the motor mounting screws and the motor assembly to determine if their loose.

I have been through this problem twice now. The first time the motor / gearbox came loose from it's mounts, began slipping (click, click,click), very nasty sound. I remounted the motor with threadlock on the NEW ALLEN HEAD screws, but alas.. two years later (mine's 2006) it slipped again.. I need to drop the headliner once more and have a look. If you would like a copy of your 05/06 FSM, drop me a line.


Here's the RESET procedure from the FSM, absolutely gospel, no other way to fix it:

Sunroof Motor Assembly Note:

Note
• If the guide is removed, initial position setting of the sunroof motor will be required. After installing the sunroof unit, perform initial position setting using the following procedure.

1. Press the TILT UP switch to fully tilt up the glass panel.

2. When the glass panel reaches the fully tilt up position, temporarily release the TILT UP switch and press it again for approx. 13 s continuously. Continue pressing the switch until the glass panel automatically stops at the fully tilt up position after reaching the mechanical lock position.

3. When the glass panel stops at the fully tilt up position, temporarily release the TILT UP switch, then press it again within 5 s and hold.
Note

• Press the TILT UP switch continuously until the glass panel opens to the fully open position, returns to the fully closed position and then stops.

4. Release the TILT UP switch when the glass panel stops at the fully closed position.


ALSO, Here's the clearance adjustment specs for having the glass panel in the correct resting position:

GLASS PANEL ADJUSTMENT

1. Fully close the glass panel.

2. Measure the gap and height difference between the glass panel and the body.

3. Loosen the glass panel installation screws and move the glass panel to adjust.

IMAGE WONT POST, SORRY

Standard clearance a: 0.2-2.2 mm {0.008-0.08 in} b: 0 mm {0 in}
4. Tighten the screws.

5. Insert any available thin plastic card between the weatherstrip and the body, and verify that they are sealed. (There is resistance when the plastic card is moved.)

• If they are not sealed, perform Steps 3-4 and adjust again.

MAP LIGHT REMOVAL/INSTALLATION

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.

2. Insert a tape-wrapped flathead screwdriver into the gap between the headliner and the map light.

3. Press the tab and remove the map light.

5. Remove the socket, then remove the map light bulb.

6. Install in the reverse order of removal.

SUNROOF UNIT DISASSEMBLY/ASSEMBLY

1. Disassemble in the order indicated in the table.

2. Assemble in the reverse order of disassembly.

Sun roof does not work


Dear cz50001: there are only a few things that you, a weekend warrior can do to diagnose and/or fix the problem on your car.
Unfortunately the newer cars get, the more complex they get.
Unfortunately, your car is one which falls in the more complex category. Your car is designed with a "BODY CONTROL MODULE". This little gem gets input from nearly every electrical component in the car including the sunroof. In terms of what you can do to check it out: The fuse box inside the car has roughly 24 fuses positioned vertically 12x12. The fuse located at the lower left side of the box is a 10A "red in color" is for the sunroof. Remove it and look through it to see if it has been burned through the center. If it has, replace it and try the sun roof. If the fuse blows again, you have a short and it would be best left to a professional.
There is another set of circumstances which can occur that will render the sunroof inoperable. If the battery is disconnected or if the sunroof motor had been disconnected, the sunroof will stop operating. To reset the sunroof memory, with the key in the on position, push and hold the sunroof tilt switch in the forward (up) position until the sunroof is fully vented (tilted up) position. It should at that point operate normally. Should those two suggestions not solve your problem, it requires either a dealership with a specialized tool called CONSULT-11 to communicate with the BCM. There are some specialty shops such as mine equipped to deal with your car as well. However, most can not address this type of problem without this diagnostic tool. Good luck.

To simply answer the question, yes, having your windows/sunroof open reduces your vehicles overall speed due to drag that's not factored into wind tunnel testing when it's designed.

If your vehicle is detecting a slip condition, your shifting too high or low, causing clutch slip as opposed to a solid engagement. This occurs in any vehicle with a clutch; you need to shift precisely. Margin of error on a shift point is not a few hundred RPM's, it's less than 100.
