Hi,
Do this -
Take down the VIN# - call the local dealer and ask them for the part number. Call NAPA and others with the Factory part number and go with that.

When we can't find a replacement motor we always go to an electric shop that does rebuilding. Its always cheaper than the new part. Any electrical motor can be rebuilt.

    other than calling the dealer it seems like there is no other places other than a used one at the junk yard. Are you sure you don't have switch issue instead. If you havn't diagnosed this are you aware you can go to mitchell1diy online and for ten bucks you can get all the wiring diagrams and repair procedures. . Just a thought.

  • Susan Price May 29, 2010

    if you want to know who makes the motor remove it. It should have a make and model # on it.

    I would like to avoid the junkyard..... Having the swtich rebuilt sounds like a good idea.


    I went to the dealership they had a list of 4 or 5 things on it that needed, I think If I just got the switch and motor everything would be okay.

    Are sunroof switches that complex and prone to fail.

    Where ever i can get a motor I figure they would have a switch also.

    I would like a Part number for the Motor and Switch.


  • Susan Price May 31, 2010

    you need to remove the part to get the part number. No mechanic will have this info. If the dealer has several options your going to have to remove the part to match it up.

  • Susan Price May 31, 2010

    note, the switch cannot be rebuilt. only the motor can

    They didn't have it. I wonder who makes sun roof motors, surely someone has a replacement or a aftermarket version.


    If these motors don't last 10 years,,,,, many others will need their replaced also I'm sure.

2001 mitsubishi eclipse sunroof wont open but i can hear the motor


Mine did the same thing...took me 8 years to figure it out without having to pay for a repair at a shop. When it lifts the centimeter on its own, push up on glass with your hand with moderate pressure till it frees up, then just push the button towards the rear of the car and it should open the sunroof completely! How i now have to open mine but its awesome after 8 years and Ill work with that...

2001 Eclipse GT Non-Functioning Sunroof


The sunroof motor is right above the open/close button inside the headliner. You are going to have to remove the headliner to replace it. Just a couple of screws and a connector from there.

How do i manually close a sunroof for a mitusbishi montero after the sunroof motor fails?


Depending on the year of your vehicle....
Earlier models had a sunroof wrench. The manual states that ..."the electronic sunroof system cannot be operated manually. The sunroof wrench that was used in previous models is not provided".

Now that may mean that if you had the wrench it could be operated manually.

I did find something else here :
NOTE: If there is a problem with the sunroof motor so that the
roof lid glass cannot close fully, use an Allen wrench to turn the
gear section of the sunroof motor to fully close the roof lid
glass.

Access seems to be just above the sunroof switch.

Sunroof stuck open


The thump means the motor is good The linkage between the motor and the sunroof got either disconnected or broke off because it is a plastic link. you will need to remove the sunroof liner and find where the linkage is broken and replace. if you do it yourself maybe it will cost just a few bucks if you take it in they will charge you a minimum of $250.00
