If the motor is engaging and there is a rapid clicking noise, then the track itself has stripped out and will require replacement. The motor can be accessed by the cover nearest the windshield. This can be removed and inspected for the gear being stripped. If any parts are needed, contact silverstar Mercedes/Porshce recycling in California and they carry all kinds of used parts that will save you money. They also gaurantee that stuff will work. Very good company.

How do fix a sunroof on a 2000 alero that is stuck open and only makes a clicking sound


I'm not familiar with this particular model but it sounds like you ran the motor past the track limits. You will have to take it apart again and reset the motor onto the track, as well as reestablish the track limits for raising and lowering the sunroof. I'm not sure how familiar you are with doing this kind of work, but you would do well to get a factory shop manual in order to do it correctly.
It's not a particularly brilliant system. When you hit the switch, the motor will keep running until it hits the contact on the track that cuts the power. If it doesn't, or the contact is in the wrong place, it will run off the track and then just spin. This true for both directions. Did you notice either of these when you replaced the motor? The shop manual should be able to tell you how to set them correctly.

Sunroof not closing


You must dismount the sunroof glass, and then run the open an close operation until the cables are lined up. You will know when. Then install the glass back. Hopefully the plastic track is not broken.

2004 expedition sunroof keeps opening on its own, I keep closing it and seconds or minutes later it opens again???


WHEN IT DOES CLOSE, DOES IT ACTUALLY SEAL GOOD LIKE IT SHOULD?? IF NOT, THEN YOU HAVE SOMETHING POSSIBLY IN THE TRACKS THAT CAUSES IT TO RE-OPEN IMMEDIATELY, SO I WOULD CHECK THE TRACKS VERY WELL, AS THATS THE ONLY THING THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN DO JUST WHAT YOU ARE DESCRIBING. THE ONLY OTHER ISSUE COULD BE THE ACTUAL SUNROOF MOTOR IS BAD, OR A SHORT IN THE ACTUAL WIRING TO THE MOTOR MECHANISM, CAUSDING THE IMMEDIATE REVERSAL OF THE SUNROOF. IF TRACKS ARE CLEAR OF ALL OBSTACLES, THEN CHECK THE WIRING FOR POSSIBLE SHORTS.

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

Sun roof does not work. how do you fix it. ?


Hi,

  1. Open the fuse panel. Turn the knob on the fuse panel cover counterclockwise or push in on the release tabs on the fuse panel cover (depending on the year of your Toyota), and pull down on the fuse panel cover.
  2. Pull the fuse for the sunroof out of the fuse panel using the fuse pullers in the fuse panel. Use the diagram on the underside of the fuse panel cover if you are having trouble locating the fuse for the sunroof.
  3. Check the metal strip in the middle of the fuse. The strip should not be burned or damaged. If it is, replace it with a fuse of the same amperage.
  4. Check the recessed track of your sunroof. Clear away any debris that may be stuck in the sunroof's track. Use engine degreaser and a wire brush to clean the track of dirt. Then, wipe the track down with clean paper towels.
  5. Apply hard grease to the sunroof wheels and track so that the sunroof can move easily once again.
Best regards

The sunroof in my 99 bonneville is making a loud noise when i open or close it almost sounds like the motor may be going bad or gears are stripped and i know nothing about sunroofs can you help ?!?


The sunroof motor is located under the roof liner above the center of the rear seat. You will need to remove the headliner in order to access the motor and or track. Do you feel you're mechanically inclind to remove all electrical, sunvisors, side roof handles side trim etc. If not than repairing the motor or track maybe beyond your scope of work. If you are let us know and once done you can proceed to the next step.

My sunroof has opened and now it won't close. Any clues?


You will have to remove the sunroof motor, and the sunroof glass. Then you can move the guide tracks seperately until they are in the closed position. Then you can put the glass and motor back in, remove the power source (fuse or disconnect wire harness) to prevent any accidental opening until you can get it fixed. Chances are that a guide track or cable is broken, this can be a costly fix. Do not take it to the dealership, they will only want to install a whole sunroof unit. Take it to a local shop that installs aftermarket sunroofs
