SOURCE: Sun visor on 2006 Kia

My daughter had the same problem with her visor. I put velcro on the visor to try to keep it up out of the way but after a while the velcro came lose and the visor came down again. I called KIA and talked with a technician. I was told that in order to fix the visor I would have to remove the cloth so I should be able to sew. Not a viable solution. We ended up taking her car in and had a new visor put on. It was covered under warranty. Had problems with headlights going out. Bought the replacement bulbs from NAPA. They only lasted a few months. Started purchasing the bulbs from the dealer and have not had to replace them for over a year. Have to pay a little more but it is worth not having to hassle with their replacement.

SOURCE: can't open a 2002 Mercedes c230 kompressor sun roof

It's typically the motors or the special drive tubes that it uses. If you here a clicking noise then the sunroof became to tight and ruined the motor gears. You can actually switch the two motors, one is for the shades and needs less power then the other motor. They are identical, switch them. Nex make sure they are very tight to the 3 mounting bolts, there is a rubber washer bushing that wears out and alloys the motor to flex too much, causing the gear mis-alignment and gear grinding. This works great I do it all the time.

2009 kia borego sunroof won't close


a jeep KIA? really?
if you post to KIA and not Jeep, answers are 10 faster and 100 times
more accurate. if at all.
all sun roofs.
1: check fuses
2: check voltage at roof motor. (active.) ( if no 12vdc hot wire the motor , does it close now? if no 12vdc the switch(relay) is bad.
3: remove trim and check the mechanism for jamming.
4: remove motor and try to move the drive , by hand, if you can it will close, if you can't, its jammed. if jammed find cause of jam.

Sun roof wont close


theres a way to close it by taking off the panel above that covers the motor and putting a allen wrench into the middle of the motor unit and turning it i think clockwise. If the gears are stripped it wont work...but if its just the motor then manually turning the gear should close it. I figured out which way it needed to be turned to close then put a allen attachment on my cordless drill and made it easier cause it will take awhile

My2001 Mitsubishi Diamante sunroof wont close i


Does the sun roof do anything whebn you press the button. if not, check your fuses and the sun roof switch. If fuses are good you want to check to see if the sun roof motor is getting power. If it is getting power it could be the motor itself. If it tries to move but can't then you have a mechanical problem. it might be binding so try giving it an assist by pushing on it when pressing the switch.

Sun visor won't go back into place


if its flopping around or feels loose you can try tightening the "hinge" that connects it to the roof and tightening the screws on the visor itself. That might align it enough to fit again properly.
