The gear is loose or worn or there is something in the lanes that stops it going forward. May be dirt, small branch or leaves. Clean it first if it still stick check the gear that moves the door.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: sun roof not closing on renault espace

Had this problem with a laguna II 1.8 . Found the solution on the net as far as I can remember was to turn the switch all the way to the left and press the switch hold for 10 secs then turn the switch all the way to the right press and hold . the sunroof does a little dance and then closes. if it does not work try going right first

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.

My Bmw e-36 sunroof doesnt open it makes a load clicking sound, we have changed the motor in the sunroof but still doesnt work


check for any obstructing rain/weather strips along the short sides of the sun roof that may be obstructing the glass, another test you can do is where the sunroof switch is located there is a greater piece of the headliner that you can pry off. there you will see the motor of the sunroof. Use a 7mm alan tool to manually open the sunroof so you can observe any obstructions.

Sunroof will not close. The sunroof is stuck in the forward open position. The battery died when the roof was left open and now I cannot close the sunroof. I can hear the relay click when I push the...


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.
