Question about 2006 Pontiac G6

Open Question

I have a 2006 G6 GT with a panoramic sunroof. The sun shield inside has appeared to come loose towards the back. Instead of the entire shield sliding back it is folding like an accordion. Is this a difficult fix. Has it come loose or has something broken?

SOURCE: BMW X 3 Panoramic sun roof initialization.

title says X5, but description says X3. i'll explain for an X5, but X3 with the pano should be the same. and i'll explain function of the roof, not reprogramming.

button is located on the panel at the top near the front & center windshield. its the switch on the far left on this panel. its a switch that not only toggles, but also slides forward & back.

with your finger in front of the button, slide it back & release. this will make the cover slide back and store revealing the sun roof. you know have 2 options (tilt the sunroof up or open the roof completely).

to tilt it up, press up on the rear of the button and release. the rear of both roofs will pop up. to close, push up and release the front of the button or slide the switch forward.

to slide it open completely, repeat what you did to open the protective cover (slide the switch from front to back). the roof will open completely and stow out of the way. to close, slide the switch forward and release. pano roof will now close.

to close the cover, slide the switch forward again.

neat trick: if you want to tilt the sunroof open without opening the protective cover, press up on the rear of the button (when the cover is closed) and release. the cover will separate in the middle exposing about a 2-3 inch mesh, then tilts the sunroof open. to close, push the button forward again.

also, if you are above a certain speed (can't remember what it is off hand) with the sunroof open or tilted, it will close automatically, then perform the neat trick on its own to keep air coming in.

one last trick: if you want to open the windows and sunroof from outside, press & hold the unlock button (forward button on the key) and you will see the windows go down, then the roof will open to vent. releasing the button will stop the motion of the windows & roof.

hope this answered what you were asking.

I just had the same problem... the rear glass has 2 suports, which you will need to insert a long screw driver in it and force them back manually... It's a pain, but I can get you all the pictures to this procedure...

  1. On the back of the assembly, unplug the harness that goes to the bulb.
  2. Then pull off the rubber sealer.
  3. There's a wire clip that goes along the bottom side of the bulb to hold it in place. Push that clip in (towards the front of the car) and down to release it.
  4. Pull out the old bulb.
  5. Insert the new bulb the same way (do not touch the bulb as that will cause it to exploded later on from the oil residue. Clean with rubbing alcohol if you touch the glass)
  6. Twist it back and forth to make sure it locks into place.
  7. Replace the clip by pushing in and up until it clicks into place.
  8. Replace the rubber sealer. Push around the entire edge until it snaps into place.
  9. Replace the wire harness.

Remove everything from the headliner and remove all of the trim holding it in place. Carefully pry the headliner out from one side and the rest will now be easily removed. Unless the car has been subject to abuse and intense heat the headliner will not come loose from the backing and can be reinstalled.

Had same problem.. all you have to do to close it is slide plastic piece back or forward with a screwdriver. it had a hole you can put it in and does not require much pressure so if you are doing the wrong thing. IT IS NOT THE METAL PIECE ON THE TILT BUT RATHER THE PLASTIC PEICE THAT HAS A TRIANGLE SHAPE. hope this helps and saves the money to close it. im still trying to find out how to fix it so if anyone has luck let me know

How can I get panoramic sunroof to close all the way?


Just guessing here. Maybe it has a safety feature like an elevator door. If something is causing resistance while its trying to close it stops and opens back up. Try inspecting the tracks the sunroof runs on for anything stuck in them, or and damage.

Your mechanic should have the relearn
for the sun roof in their data base

They should not have given the car back like that

Not likely it will be in the owners manual

Usually in an expensive Service Manual or on CD's
these past several years

2002 volvo s80 sun roof does not close correctly


After getting advise from Tech, I fixed my sunroof within 30 mins.

Of course, you will need Torx Screw Driver. If you plan to do any fixing with your Volvo, you should have a set of these available.

Symtoms, my sunroof makes noise and the sunroof looks lower than it should be. FYI, if you hear noise when driving on uneven roads, you should check for sunroof noise. You can probably hear it when you close your door, make sure the cover is opened so you can hear it.

There are 2 metal support bars GLUED to the front and back of your sunroof GLASS. When these get partially loose, they rattle against the glass and make noise. The is a known issue, I suggest you check yours to make sure one day it doesn't fall completely off when you open your sunroof and hit you or fall off in the back of your roof to cause expensive repair.

Solution for Noise: You can rip these bars off and put it away. (FYI, I ripped the front one off mine, but will attempt to glue it back when I have time. I will report back if I can successfully glue it.) They are there for additional support to your glass. I wouldn't feel comfortable if I have to rip both of them out. Your calls. I would blame it on bad design, but they are there for a good reason.

Sunroof Lowered or Loose: When you looked at the top of your roof, the sunroof should be somewhat leveled to the roof, mine wasn't. There are 2 torxes screws on each SIDE of your sunroof that hold the glass in place. You won't see it until you remove the shield from it. When looking at it, you will see the folded shield, they are held in place by 3 clips (you can't see them) against the glass at 2 both ends and 1in the middle. Use what ever you can to pull the very top out from the clip locations (I used my fingers, but you can use a hair tweezer or something like that). You only need to pull out the top part against the glass and not the whole thing. Then you can fold that piece toward you and you will see the screws. It's easier if you lift up (open up)your sunroof to remove this shield. But you have to close it to tighten the screws since that's the only way you can tell if it's level or not. It would help if you have someone standing outside telling you the level (I had to get in and out of the car many times to eye it). Afterward, just push the shield back into place.

This is a detail instruction, so you will know what I'm talking about when you actually doing it. Save some money, do it yourself. Hope it helps! For more information

Leaking sun-roof


If you open the sunroof, look towards the rear corners and you will see 2 openings that are the drains. If the drain openings are clogged, you will get water into the car from the sunroof.
