If the sunroof is out of it's rail this is possible to happen , you have to reset it in position(by bushing it from inside the machine to upside) and then it will work.

SOURCE: my sunroof only opens about 5 inches then makes a

I too have had this problem. There is a sound pad made of tar behind the glass and is supposed to be stuck to the underside of the roof. This detaches and falls into the moon roof valley tray and that is what is stopping it from moving back. open roof in the up position and use a slim tool to remove the pad.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 1995 C220 SUNROOF NOT SEATING PROPERLY

Unfortunatly these roofs are basically a complete unit with cable and frame all in one unit where as previous roofs had replacable components. Assuming yourr roof seal is not torn or damaged you can adjust the glass somewhat. There are 6 torx style bolts that secure the roof to the tilting brackets. I would raise the roof in the pop up position and carefully remove the side bellows(They are also a common failure and can cause roof to bind or not operate to complete rest postion)-they pop out by pulling outward. Just remove the bottom section so you can easily reinstall them. Next loosen the back torx screws( I beleive they are size t20) and push roof up as far as you can and resecure. If only one side is not popping up as far as it should just do that side. Then try resynchronizing the roof parameters by pushing the button untill roof is in forward postion and hold for approximatly 10 seconds-next push button untill roof is in pop up position and hold for 10 seconds. You can also loosen all 6 screws by popping off the plastic trim piece in front of roof and loosening the screws and pushing roof all the way forward. but you will spend alot of time adjusting utill roof is perfect. good luck

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

I have a `99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with a sunroof that won't close. It will open, but only close a few inches. What's wrong and how do I fix it?


Hi, as a general point on sunroofs I have known the white grease used on them to go hard after time and cause them to go tight. Flushing the Runners with a good penetrating oil whilst working the sunroof back and forward can help to free them off, sometimes giving the roof a hand will help to get them moving. jon

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 say for sure about this particular model, but most vehicles with sunroofs have a manual crank for situations like this. Generally it is located forward of the sunroof on the roof of the interior of the car, sometimes under a panel or interior light. This at least will get the roof closed until the problem can be fixed. It may also allow the sun roof to realign itself and help the electric crank to start working again.

BMW X 3 Panoramic sun roof initialization.


title says X5, but description says X3. i'll explain for an X5, but X3 with the pano should be the same. and i'll explain function of the roof, not reprogramming.

button is located on the panel at the top near the front & center windshield. its the switch on the far left on this panel. its a switch that not only toggles, but also slides forward & back.

with your finger in front of the button, slide it back & release. this will make the cover slide back and store revealing the sun roof. you know have 2 options (tilt the sunroof up or open the roof completely).

to tilt it up, press up on the rear of the button and release. the rear of both roofs will pop up. to close, push up and release the front of the button or slide the switch forward.

to slide it open completely, repeat what you did to open the protective cover (slide the switch from front to back). the roof will open completely and stow out of the way. to close, slide the switch forward and release. pano roof will now close.

to close the cover, slide the switch forward again.

neat trick: if you want to tilt the sunroof open without opening the protective cover, press up on the rear of the button (when the cover is closed) and release. the cover will separate in the middle exposing about a 2-3 inch mesh, then tilts the sunroof open. to close, push the button forward again.

also, if you are above a certain speed (can't remember what it is off hand) with the sunroof open or tilted, it will close automatically, then perform the neat trick on its own to keep air coming in.

one last trick: if you want to open the windows and sunroof from outside, press & hold the unlock button (forward button on the key) and you will see the windows go down, then the roof will open to vent. releasing the button will stop the motion of the windows & roof.

hope this answered what you were asking.

Tiburon sunroof problem


Hi guys you have to re-program the computer function that controls the sun roof. Turn the ignition to off. Hold down both buttons that open the sunroof simultaneously and switch the ignition to on. Continue holding the buttons to open for about 10 seconds, or until you here a click, or until the sunroof opens. This should fix the problem, and remember the solution because it will happen again.
