Sounds like it may be missing a weather strip? You will need to compare it to a similar model...Sounds worth fixing:)

SOURCE: Power sliding door won't close properly on 2005 Freestar

U will need to buy a can of spray white grease and clean and then lubricate all the tracks the door channels on as well as all the latches for the door, this will cure the issue in most cases, did allot of these while working at a Ford dealer.

SOURCE: 2005 Toyota Sienna XLE - Automatic sliding door not closing.

This may or may not work depending on exactly what is wrong with the door, I cant tell what is wrong without looking at it directly however:
You can try starting with all doors closed and unlocked, keys in hand disconnecting the battery and letting the vehicle sit for 2 min or so, then reconnect the battery. Put the key into the ignition and turn it to the on position but do not start the van. Next press the button to disable the power sliding door for the drivers side, then manually open the door fully, wait 5 seconds, then close it manually fully. Press button the button again to re-enable the power sliding door, then try to use it with the automatic feature either by pulling the handle or using your remote, this may or may not work depending on if the door has somehow become de-initialized (it should work now) however if something is broken inside the door closing mechanism or door closed/open sensors, the door will continue to malfunction.

How do you reset sunroof in a 2001 Monte Carlo with 3400 model I


check fuse and relay if good than possible motor ot track problem their should be a mechanical bypass that will let you close it if stuck open the following information is courtesy of monte carlo forum
To check the condition of your original sunroof guides:
  1. Gl*** in closed position.
  2. Locate & remove 3 torx bolts on each side of sunroof glass. Lift glass out of sunroof opening & set aside in a safe place.
  3. Locate "J" shaped cover plate at front of sunroof track assembly. Remove 2 torx bolts from each cover plate.
  4. Lift up bracket to remove.
  5. Inspect the plastic guides on each side. The sunroof cables attach to guides on front outer corner. Inspect this area closely for damage.
  6. Do not operate the sunroof with the J plates removed.
Troubleshooting:
If the sunroof guides are not broken & the glass is a uniform height along the rear edge your problem may be a stripped gear inside the motor. The motor has a manual override:
  1. Get access to the motor by removing the map light/switch console or lowering the front of the headliner.
  2. Insert a large standard screwdriver into the nylon bushing at the center of the motor hub. Push up & turn the screwdriver to manually move the sunroof glass. If the unit will fully open & close manually, you most likely only need a replacement motor.

If your sunroof is stuck in the open position follow these steps to get it closed:
  1. Remove the glass.
  2. Try to close the unit without the glass. Many times one side will still be operational and close correctly.
  3. Try to slide the inoperable lift arm forward. If it moves, slide it forward until it stops.
  4. You now need to slide the original plastic guide forward to lower the arm to the closed position. Using a standard screwdriver, push it forward. The lift arm should begin to lower.
  5. If the lift arm will still not fully lower, remove the J plate as explained above, sometimes the sunroof cable will need to be lifted up to allow the guide to fully slide forward.
  6. Reinstall glass.

2002 volvo s80 sun roof does not close correctly


After getting advise from Tech, I fixed my sunroof within 30 mins.

Of course, you will need Torx Screw Driver. If you plan to do any fixing with your Volvo, you should have a set of these available.

Symtoms, my sunroof makes noise and the sunroof looks lower than it should be. FYI, if you hear noise when driving on uneven roads, you should check for sunroof noise. You can probably hear it when you close your door, make sure the cover is opened so you can hear it.

There are 2 metal support bars GLUED to the front and back of your sunroof GLASS. When these get partially loose, they rattle against the glass and make noise. The is a known issue, I suggest you check yours to make sure one day it doesn't fall completely off when you open your sunroof and hit you or fall off in the back of your roof to cause expensive repair.

Solution for Noise: You can rip these bars off and put it away. (FYI, I ripped the front one off mine, but will attempt to glue it back when I have time. I will report back if I can successfully glue it.) They are there for additional support to your glass. I wouldn't feel comfortable if I have to rip both of them out. Your calls. I would blame it on bad design, but they are there for a good reason.

Sunroof Lowered or Loose: When you looked at the top of your roof, the sunroof should be somewhat leveled to the roof, mine wasn't. There are 2 torxes screws on each SIDE of your sunroof that hold the glass in place. You won't see it until you remove the shield from it. When looking at it, you will see the folded shield, they are held in place by 3 clips (you can't see them) against the glass at 2 both ends and 1in the middle. Use what ever you can to pull the very top out from the clip locations (I used my fingers, but you can use a hair tweezer or something like that). You only need to pull out the top part against the glass and not the whole thing. Then you can fold that piece toward you and you will see the screws. It's easier if you lift up (open up)your sunroof to remove this shield. But you have to close it to tighten the screws since that's the only way you can tell if it's level or not. It would help if you have someone standing outside telling you the level (I had to get in and out of the car many times to eye it). Afterward, just push the shield back into place.

This is a detail instruction, so you will know what I'm talking about when you actually doing it. Save some money, do it yourself. Hope it helps! For more information

Rear view mirror fell off the glass, how do I take the plate off the mirror so I can glue it to the windsheld


Loosen the the tiny allen set screw if it has one, OR it just pops/slides out, and it is hard to get it to do that. Hold the mirror like it was on the glass, the metal piece comes out the bottom or towards the dash. Also, when glued you will have to slide the mirror back onto the metal piece starting at the top and push it down until it locks....you'll know!! You might think your going to pop the metal off the glass but keep firm steady pressure and it'll go.

Sunroof motor and cable replacement


The motor is located in the recess above the near side wheel arch and is mounted on a small frame held in place by two 10mm bolts. In order to remove the motor you will need first to extract the sunroof cable that runs though it. What follows sounds complicated but is quite quick and easy. 1) Ease the sun roof back to half open, if the motor is not working just put a 17mm socket on the nut in the centre of the motor and hand crank it open. 2) Between the sliding metal roof and the headlining panel, about 10cm from the leading edge, are 4 pop connectors. Slip a large bladed screw driver between these and separate. 3) Ease the headlining panel forward and pull it up and out through the sunroof aperture. 4) Now close the sun roof, if necessary using the same hand crank method used to open it. 5) On the under side of the sliding roof panel at the rear in the middle you will see the end of the cable tube guide . Mounted at the end there is a metal butterfly mount located with two 8mm bolts. This mount is what actually holds the end of the cable to the sunroof bridge mechanism. Remove these two bolts and withdraw the whole cable forwards, again the hand crank can help here. Take care this cable will be filthy. Check the end for signs of teeth missing - if so replace and clean the motor gear box of metal shavings 6) Returning to motor - disconnect the electrical connector block. 7) To the front of the motor the sunroof cable tube is held in place with a clip. Push the tube end at 90 degrees to the motor body towards the outside skin of the car to un-clip and to disengage it. 8) to the rear of the motor you will see a similar exit cable tube. This time the the tube must be pulled at 90 degrees to the motor towards the car interior and when unclipped this needs to be moved away towards the rear to clear the motor assembly. 9) Once the two 10mm frame mounting bolts are removed the motor can be extracted 10) Check the health of the (replacement) motor gear box by removing the three 8mm bolts holding the steel backing plate in place. The large plastic driven cog can be removed by undoing the 17mm nut on the other side whilst holding the central spindle with a 6mm open spanner to stop it rotating. 11) Clean everything to a shine and re-grease liberally. 12) Reassembly is the reverse of the above remembering to clean the drive cable and re-greasing prior to reinstallation

How do i remove my sunroof in a 2002 nissan xterra


You have a "Flip Up" sunroof. The lever at the back of the sunroof that allows you to flip it open detaches from the headliner when you wish to remove the glass. Once you have the latch detached from the headliner you can push the glass up past the normal 3" or so that it normally opens when you flip it up. You will need to stand on the running board while opening it fully perpendicular to the roof of the car, (striaght up and down). Then the glass will slide out, I forget which way, but either towards the passenger side or the drivers side and voila, you have removed your sunroof!

How do I replace the back window?


Remove the black vinyl trim from the edge of the glass. Remove broken glass & urethane adhesive from the metal pinchweld leaving a thin layer (approx 1/16") of urethane for new new urethane to adhere to. Vacuum broken glass. Prime nicks to the metal to protect from rusting (also insuring a good surface to bond to). Attach vinyl reveal molding to glass (unless it's a "T" shaped push in type - it would install after the glass is set). Clean and prime the replacement glass. Apply new urethane adhesive. Set glass in place.Slide the metal joint cover in place on the molding (at bottom in the center). Clean outer surface of glass. Allow for safe drive away as noted by urethane manufacturer.

07 Equinox Leaking water at the front corners of the sun roof. usually during heavy rain, but also when going thru the car wash and the blowers come on to dry the water off.


check the adjustment of your sunroof, i work at a dealer and i just had a 2006 equinox in with the same exact problem, if you look at where the glass attaches to the sunroof rails you will see 2 torx screws on each side, with the sunroof closed, loosen the screws a little bit, don't remove them, push the glass up untill its level with the roof and the seal around the glass looks even all the way around where it contacts the roof sheet metal, then tighten down the screws while holding the glass in place. if it continues to leak, remove the sun visors and the clips for the sun visors, i believe they are either philips scres or torx, there will be 2 screws on the visor itself, and 1 for the clip. then remove the front pillar trim panel, you will see a small cover in the upper panel, use a pick or a sharp thin tool to pry the cover off and remove the 7mm screw in there, pull the door weatherstrip off and pull the trim panel off, after you do that gently pull the headliner down in the front corner and peek up at the sunroof frame, make sure the drain ose is still connected, the procedure is the same for both left and right sides. this should definitely clear up your problem!

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.

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.

Hope the info is helpful.
