Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Many posts/questions are bouncing around the issue I'm having with my 99Rav4 sunroof. Mine will slide open and close but will not tilt open. It makes a clicking noise like it's trying to engage so to speak. When walking up to the car, you can clearly see the back corner (passenger) side is not sealed, it dips down. I want to try and open it but fear it will get stuck open and where I live...You cant do that! Any imput on what to do would be appreciated.

It sounds like a bent track or roof slide. A body shop would be your best bet. good luck

SOURCE: Sunroof won't open. It

It is probably the regulator and motor. there are a lot of plastic pieces in them and when the rubber seal made it jam, it finally broke. This is not a fun fix. You will need to purchase a book to repair this on your own. And if you do the repair make sure you fix the seal also, as not to run into this problem again

Tip

2002 Jaguar XType Sun-roof one-touch operations reset


I had this issue and found the solution around, worth sharing and it takes 30 seconds: <br /> <span> <li>Press the sunroof switch forward to move the sliding roof panel into the tilted position.</li> <li>Release the sunroof switch.</li> <li>Press and hold the sunroof switch forward until the sliding roof panel moves slightly. This may take 30 seconds or more.</li> <li>Release the sunroof switch.</li> <li>Immediately press and hold the sunroof switch in the forward position. The sliding roof panel will move down and rearward to the open position, and then forward into the closed position. Do not release the sunroof switch until the sliding roof panel has stopped completely.</i></li> <li>Your sunroof panel should now be aligned.</li></span>

Reset sunroof toyota


To reset the moonroof one-touch operation:
With ignition switch in the "ON" position, do the following:
1. Push and hold the "TILT UP" side of the switch until the moon roof tilts all the way up and then tilts down slightly (approximately 10 mm [0.39 in.] at the rear).
2. Check for proper operation of the "one-touch slide open/close" and "one-touch tilt up/down" functions by pushing the switch briefly to the "SLIDE OPEN" and
"TILT UP" positions.

My sunroof on my 96 range rover will not close all the way up at the rear


I have a 99 Rover. Mine fits really tight also and has not closed all the way either. I would open the sunroof all the way and use a ladder or something to get the correct elevation. Get some lithium spray, its kinda like WD-40 spray. Clean and spray all points of contact that the sunroof slides on. Then slide the sunroof back and forth multiple times. Make sure you press and hold the button one more time after if stops on its own. Then apply lubricant around the back of sunroof part that's exposed up in the air. I'm sure it's all your contacts are just dry from weather exposure and time. Good Luck!

who do i contact to sue gm? after the n.h.t,s.a told gm on 5-23-73 to recall all 1993 saturns gm refused 29 days later i was in a accident that the n.h.t.s.a wanted recalled for a serious saftey problem i suffered a permanent tramatic brain injury and i wrote a letter to mary barra gmsc-e-o.she handed my letter to a jeffery koppy gms lead counsel who replied by a letter to me that was the old gm and because we filled bankruptcy in 2009 the new gmis not taking any futher action in regards to your letter.it took the feds to get gm to finally get the car recalled on 8-10 93 while i was still in the hospital.it gets worst i was a employee for gm at the time.because of my head injury i can't ever work again. i still had 17 years to work for gm and to get my 30 years to retire which was to be may of 2010.instead i had to retire a little after the accident.the day after accident iwas supposed to sign my transfer papers to another gm plant in michigan i was employed at their wentzville mo. plant because i was in a coma for 3 weeks and in the hospital 3 months that transfer never happened and the house we had at the time of accident was all ready sold. we had to get a lawyer so we could remain there. because my one car accident happened so close to where we lived.it happened on the i-70 expressway in warren county in the city of warrenton mo. all our neighbors knew about it. i was told by my doctors to try and do phyical therapy as much as possible.so my wife took me for a walk almost every day.but all our neighbors knew of what happened to me they just staired at me every day.it made me feel like a freak.so we sold the house and moved to the country.and if all that wasn't bad enough when my youngest daughter finished nursing school she asked me if i would co sign a loan for her in 2002 for a new car i still got my gm discount and because my brain wasn't right i told her to go to the gm dealer in the city i lived in because the sales-man was a very good man. and over the years we bought new cars from him i felt we were good friends.the car my daughter bought was a lemon from the time she bought it.it had nothing to do with the salesman or dealer. it was a 2002 chevy malibu.well one day she gave a friend a ride home and as she pulled into friends driveway the ignition just turned off.like it did to those 124 people who died because of a problem gm knew about for a long time. my daughters ignition failed in 2004 so she had the car towed to the closest dealer .they said the ignition was bad and said she needed a new one so she told them to go go ahead a replace it even gm had long knew of the problem she had to pay to get it replaced.then if you's can believe this about 10 years later i think it was 2013 or 2014 she got a recall letter telling her that the gm dealer put in another bad ignition.try keep sending her recall letters.but with gm almost killing her dad plus alot of other people wih cars with bad ignitions. she said theres no way gm will tought her car as usual it wasn't running any ways.so it just sat there and she got tired of looking at it and she just called the junk yard i forget how much she got but said she was just glad it was gone and could never hurt anybody ever again.but i'm not dead yet and i still want gm to pay me for what they did to me.as far as i'm concerned gm should be forced to stop making cars.think of all those children who lost their mother or another family member because of gm.i guess so many companys are out for the most money than can make their using defective parts. before i sign off i would like to say the plant i worked at in wentzville mo.had the most inspectors and process assurance inspectors that it almost impossible for something to slip by.i can see if a car rolls out missing a nut or bolt from time to time but there is no reason anything saftey related to ever be missed,from what i found out about the saturn car that almost killed me the bad positive battery cable that shorted out every thing in the car like air bags and abs brakes with no air bags to deploy thats why i was ejected head first out thru the front windshield.i'll bet it hurt alot but doctors said i was knocked out instantly.BUT just because i was in a coma my wife who is a nurse said i was thrashing around moaning that they kept giving me alot of morphine shots.so i'm very tired now using one finger to type on computer.so before yous buy a new car make damn sure there aren't any recalls on it jay teffer signing off.watch what car you decide to buy!!!!!!!!!
