    Some where a mistake occured in the car model.

    Mine is a 1999 Volvo S80. The wind deflector is still in place. The part that hit my head has a slight curve in it and is of about 1/16" gauge,about 29" long and fairly heavy.The profile is like a 1 sitting on the top of a back ward written C. There are four very slim sealing strip on one side of the 1.The part does not show up in the Vadis schematic for the sunroof. My wife has a 2001 V40 and I cannot see a similar part on her sunroof. Can you help?

    The wind deflector on my S80 not the V40 is in place and pops up with no problems. The part that fell as I described is the problem that I wish to fix. It is as i noted about 29" long about I/16 of and inch thick and has four (4) thin seals on the straight part . The profile is like a 1 then draw a backward C under it.The part has a slight curve that coincides with roof. Please read this and the other post carefully. I also repeat that the WIND DEFLECTOR POPS UP AND IS WORKING.

    All of the experts are missing the problem.It is not a wind deflector that fell on me,nor as far as I can see is it a part of it. The part that fell when I opened the sunroof on my 1999 Volvo S8 2.9 is about 29" long,about 1/16" thick it has a profile like a vertical line sitting on top of a backward C . There is a slight curve on it that closely matches the curve of the front roof line, and 4 thin sealing strips on the flar part (the vertical 1) So far no one has come close and probably does not know the cars details.

You can use silicone or drill your own holes to mount it. I use silicone.

There is a replacement wind deflector available for this model. According to the description it simply installs using existing screws. If the screws have come loose on yours then you should simply be able to refit it. However if the mounting points are damaged you can purchase a new one and simply install it yourself. See link.

Its for the S40 but I believe its the same application.

The best thing to do is check with a volvo dealer and see if they can order one. Simply remove the head liner to replace sunroof motor with new reassemble to recheck operation.

I hate to say this but there is probably something physically broke. You might try to google manufacturer and get a breakdown of parts involved. After inspecting the sunroof with the breakdown you might be able to come up with a fix. Good luck.

Why won't my sunroof close all the way or set?


In many case this problem, not uncommon, is related to the retractable wind deflector that pops up when the roof opens and tucks away when it closes. A couple things to check....
First step up on a ladder or the passenger door sill and get a good look at the deflector itself. The mechanism is spring loaded and you should be able to easily push it down into its cubby and it should spring back up when you release it. Inspect closely for blockages by debris.
Second, inspect the track that the roof travels on for missing or loose fasteners (screws). These do come loose and even completely out. In which case the rooitself can get hung up on the protruding screw head or be blocked by a loose screw somewhere in its path.
The last item to inspect is the track and spring mechanism of the deflector for lubricant. There should be visible presence of grease on the tracks as well as the deflector hinge and spring points. If not this also is sufficient to stop the movement of the roof and or trigger the anti trap function. Apply a universal grease or white lithium grease is what I use. The motor of the roof is intentionally not very strong in order to prevent shattering the glass in instances exactly of this nature.
I've never seen any more significant issues with the sunroof operation or mechanics than these. In the event you ate unable to resolve with these tips you can manually close the roof while deciding your course of further action and stop the wind noise. That odds looking tool in your glove compartment is a T-wrench for turning the roof motor and gears for service. Simply remove your overhead light. First the clear lens, then the two screws you will see on either side of the bulb. This will drop your interior light cluster and clearly give you acccess to the center of the primary gear. Insert your wrench (which I believe is a Rover unique design) and gently turn until roof is tightly closed.
I couldn't give you any further advice without a personal inspection, hope this solves your issue. One word of caution, the sunroof glass is easily shattered. Do not apply any force to the glass panel.
Good luck!

SUNROOF CHRYSLER 300 NOT CLOSING PROPERLEY


Lubricate the sunroof sliding mechanism with some spray lubricant/greece .
If the roof closes properly with the engine running, then check your battery voltage.
If your roof still doesn't close properly, then check the wind deflector strip which pops up when the roof is open. It should be held in by clips, but may have come unclipped, or bent.
If none of this helps, then take out the roof lining and inspect the inner workings, motor and gear.

How to install the front bumpers air deflector on a 2003 cadillac cts


If you have the new deflector already, go to your local auto parts store and get 8 - 10 plastic retainers. Pry the old ones open and pop them out. Put the new deflector in place and "pop" in the new retainers. Did mine in about 5 minutes. Don't get the retainers at the dealer. They are about 3 bucks a piece. At O'Reilley's they are 2 for a buck (I Think, It's been a while.) This is an easy fix that will really improve the looks, and resale value, of your CTS. Hope this helps.8_22_2012_1_19_36_am.jpg

2003 tiburon power sunroof won't close all the way . It'll open all the way but starts to close & then stops.


sounds like the metal deflector in front of the sunroof,is separated and caught in the roof mechanism, however there are other issues that can cause that condition, it can be anything from a bad sunroof switch to the sunroof tracks jamming, start with looking to see if there any obstuctions in the track..the sunroof mechanism can get costly to repair.

When i open the sunroof more than about 8 inches on my 06 tundra it causes an evil vibration that is so horrible. what can i do?


Your sunroof is suffering from wind impact. Search for "sunroof deflector" in Google and you'll turn up a variety of products that will redirect air while still letting you keep the sunroof partially open. They're also nice because they let the cabin air out without becoming incredibly windy.

Alternately, you could just open it all the way so that the wind can't catch anything to vibrate.
