I just purchased a used yukon xl. Both plastic rails are broken.
Solution: Drill out the blind rivet. Start with 1/8 drill bit and remove the head off. The plastic broken part can now be removed.
Install a blind rivet through the new plastic rail and use the rivet gun to squeeze the rivet in place. Make sure it is the right length.
get a grip gage and determine the right rivet for it.
very easy job.

How can I adjust the sunroof on a 97 cavalier so that the passenger side will shut all the way


There isn't an adjustment. The regulator for the sunroof is broken. There are plastic cable guides at the corners. One is broken and the cable came off tract.

HOW to fix jammed sunroof ?


Repair is normally very expensive. Might be best to try and get the window shut and pull the fuse. Remember that there are drain holes on each side of the window to prevent it from leaking. Dont let any debri get in there.

Honda CRV Model 1999, jammed. One side of sunroof completely off its rail.How do I fix the problem. Grateful for any advice.


Sunroof's are highly technical things, plenty of cables springs bracket adjusters and grease. I think you should maybe have it looked at.

Passenger side window in 2004 Honda Odyssey: The cable is no longer connected to the rail. Where does the cable reattach to the rail? It's hard to see inside the frame of the door.


This tells me the regulator is broken,the cable may have poped or a plastic wheel guide broke, you will need to replace the regulator, heres a picture to help explain what i'm talking about,fb9a2c2.jpg

How to fixs a jam sunroof


Thats a hard one. I currently build and have installed sunroofs for 20yrs. the problem is an electric motor keeps you from moving the glass if there is no power. If power is present and the motor can not move the roof then there is usually a broke component. I have seen were people have tried to break in by pulling up on the glass and this will break the plastic locking mechanism. Dealer will have to get replacement parts to repair. Should be under warranty. Hope this sends you in the right direction.

03 Freelander sunroof wont close. One side looks like it is open tand the other side with the moving parts look closed. how do I fix this? Is there a way to take out the window?


Had a smiilar problem with my 2000 Freelander, the runners on the sunroof have plastice teeth which snap off, if you remove the plastic strips on the inside of the sunroof you can unscrew the glass take it out force the sunroof into the closed position and reattahch the sunroof, then never use it again

Sunroof stuck open...electronic switch clicks when pushed to open position...but nothing when trying to close...can this be manually closed or is there a breaker or something that can be reset?


The roof slides along a channel actuated by a coiled cord.

Both of the cords pass along a gear attached to the Sunroof motor which pulles the cord tooth by tooth.

There are two plastic wedges that drop into the plastic slides on the sunroof (the plastic slides are behind the more forward metal slides.)

The plastic slides control the tilt of the roof when moved independantly. The plastic wedges join them.

If the roof moves too far back, it is possible for the wedges to stick up and jam the roof open.

This should never happen, but could if the two micro switches on the sunroof motor assy fail to provide feedback to the controller indicating the roofs position.

Access to the Sunroof motor requires you to drop the headliner.

To drop the headliner, the plastic pillar shrouds need to be removed front and back, the seatbelt bolts in the middle secion need to be removed, the oh-**** handle, the front visors, and cabin lights.

3 bolts hold the motor up.

With the motor down you can try* to manually actuate the cords using a flat screwdriver, but move the left and right side evenly a tooth at a time.

Of course of the plastic wedges are jammed, it's not going to budge.

Hope the info is helpful. good luck!

Sunroofs off track and wont close


If your indicating the roof is crooked, that's odd... The roof slides along a channel actuated by a coiled cord.

Both of the cords pass along a gear attached to the Sunroof motor which pulles the cord tooth by tooth, impossible to go crooked unless really jammed or tampered with.

There are two plastic wedges that drop into the plastic slides on the sunroof (the plastic slides are behind the more forward metal slides.)

The plastic slides control the tilt of the roof when moved independantly. The plastic wedges join them.

If the roof moves too far back, it is possible for the wedges to stick up and jam the roof open.

This should never happen, but could if the two switches on the gear fail and no longer provide feedback to the controller indicating the roofs position.

Sunroof will not close


If you hear motor hum than it's probably a bad rail part. I have the same plastic rail part and both sides broke. Can't find a replacement anywhere.
