Question about 2006 Ford F-150

1 Answer

2006 ford f150 sunroof mechanism won't close. One side will close but one side sticks partway closed

I checked for debris in the tracks. I also inspected for any broken parts but could not see any. If there is a drive cable in the mechanism it must be broken on the passenger side.

At least you have a truck. Less parts to remove. The headliner has to come down. replace the regulator. Is comes with the motor. Most likely it is a plastic piece that has broken. Not the cable. If you want the roof to open, fix it. If not get it closed and seal it up.

2000 Tahoe sunroof won't fully close


Is there any debris in the track of the window especially towards the front. Thew clicking sound you are hearing may be worn gears in the drivve assembly of the window/power roof mechanism. Is there a limit switch for the sunroof? This may be bad also. Check the easy stuff first and get back with me.

KA sunroof won't open


sunroofs are a total pain to work on and are very delicate as to moving parts and adjustments. if you are not really mechanically inclined I would not mess with it. take it to a technician if you can afford it. If you think you can work on an intricate and sensitive mechanism and realize that once you get into it it may not close anymore then go ahead. If it is closed now I would just act like you don't have a sunroof anymore and leave it alone, lucky it is not locked in the open position. If you insist on working on it yourself you can remove the glass easily enough by looking into the opening from the inside and remove screws, should be four, 2 each side front and back. after removing the screws you can see most everything from the roof side and tell if something is out of place or debris is interrupting operation. good luck, you are going to need it.

2006 honda ridgeline sunroof is stuck, will nor close tightly


Most common problem for sunroofs is debris like acorns, twigs, ect stuck in the track on the sunroof. Also, check for bent warped, or other out of place things causing the sunroof to reach it's limit causing it to shut down before closed completely. Remember, power windows, sunroofs, back glasses, nearly everything powered by an electric motor has a limit switch to protect if from damage.

My old mercedes w115 220 d (1974) manual sunroof is not closing. I don't know if there is any part of the sunroof missing beacuse the car was on a major reability program and I forget the pieces of the...


There's not a heck of a lot to the manual sunroof. I suspect some sort of debris in the track.
First off to remove a sunroof you open it all the way, looking down from on top of the car you will see the two chrome tracks on either side. They are healed on by two screws (there is a third adjustment screw on each side - it is obviously different and not holding the track down - don't mess with it -- or perhaps this is your problem...)
Remove the screws and the top to the tracks (they will lift right off) then slide the sunroof mostly closed and lift it out.
Now look into the tracks - back into the roof. Is there anything there that ought to not be there? Remove it - this can be challenging since it's narrow - a shot van and the biggest pice of tubing that will fit in there might do it for you.
Lube up the track with silicone lube (oil or grease will stick to dirt) clean the 4 feet of the sun roof. Notice the two rollers at the back these love the sunroof in place within it's open and push the back up when closed. With the roof out check that they move easily when you turn the handle.
Now back to the car - notice the two adjustment screws, they lift or lower the back of the track - perhaps you turned them when you were removing it the first time. In any event if they are up too high the roof won't fit (the wheels pushing out will try to push the sunroof door out of the car) You can see the small wedge next to the track - the wheels will roll up this wedge to close the back of the roof - and it needs to be in a reasonable position.
Don't force it you risk breaking the handle, the connecting mechanism or those wheels and where are you going to get a new one?
So now you can put the sunroof door back into place. Slide it back and forth - it should move easily. Now try to close it. It should close easily if not try adjusting the wedges down (this adjustment should not have changed but I am assuming you inadvertently changed these while trying to remove the sunroof door - it you're certain that you did not do that then it's something else).
Good Luck,
Frank
