Question about 2002 Toyota Camry

I had the same problem on my 2003 Toyota Camry. The threaded drive screws are what spin underneath the seat and cause the seat to move back and forth (same way a garage door opens or closes). When the seat gets all the way in the forward position, the threading on the drive screws ends, which causes the bolts connected to the seat to jam and get stuck. It should sound like the motor is trying to turn but it won't, it just clicks. Un-jam the bolts and rotate them one rotation from the all the way forward position to ensure your seat is reinstalled straight.

I had that same problem the other night. Started the car the next morning and pushed the switch and it closed, but it will no longer open or tilt.

When I push on the close button for the sunroof of my 2009 Toyota Camry, it closes and then pops back open if held down longer than just tapping it slowly. If not in exactly the right location, it will then not slide open and closed, thus requiring more tapping to get it in the exact location. Any suggestions??

Temporary Fix: unsnap off the access door in the overhead ceiling liner behind the sunroof opening;
Use a 4mm hexagon Allen wrench to wind it closed.

If this occured after trying to close the shade while the moonroof was opening, it is possible that the plastic tab that locks into the vent (and subsequently the rest of the moonroof) has been bent. I was having a similar problem where my vent would only go up on one side and stay closed on the other (and it would sometimes get stuck open). It would also prevent the rest of the moonroof from opening up. If this is the case, from what I can tell, there is no easy fix for this. Upon researching this problem, you are the only other person asking about it and zero fixes. For the time being, the vent can be closed by lifting up on one side to "unlock" the stuck tab and you should be able to put it down. After that, you should look up instructions to remove your moonroof glass to see if you can inspect the affected area to determine the cause. Here is a link that shows you how to remove the moonroof glass, but does not address the exact issue you describe.
