Can I manually close or open roof on 500 sl 2005, stuck and want lower


Some cars have a manual sun roof closer. It's usually in the ceiling in the back seat, behind a plastic plug. Remove the plug and insert an allen wrench to close the sun roof.

I have a 2003 monte carlo ss sun roof wont close and making popping noise


Sounds like the gears are bad in one spot. You can try to guide it closed with someone helping you as you pull or push it into place. Otherwise: http://www.theautopartsshop.com/auto+car-usa+parts/chevrolet+monte-carlo+sunroof-motor.html

Honda CRV-2001 MODEL SUN ROOF WILL NOT OPEN OR CLOSE. Sun roof motor OK, but loud clicking noise evident when power button is operated. Sun Roof stuck in closed position.


caution if it opens you may not be able to close it again, this sounds like the track broke or something in the motor. lets hope its the motor as if its the track then the whole track needs to be replaced, there is no repairing a broken sunroof track.

Can't open a 2002 Mercedes c230 kompressor sun roof


It's typically the motors or the special drive tubes that it uses. If you here a clicking noise then the sunroof became to tight and ruined the motor gears. You can actually switch the two motors, one is for the shades and needs less power then the other motor. They are identical, switch them. Nex make sure they are very tight to the 3 mounting bolts, there is a rubber washer bushing that wears out and alloys the motor to flex too much, causing the gear mis-alignment and gear grinding. This works great I do it all the time.
