SOURCE: cabriolet roof stopped halfway through opening

Make sure the car is on level ground. I had the same problem several times. Finally figured out in talking with the Audi service adivsor that if the car is on a hill (like my driveway) internal sensors can't tell the position of the top so it stops.

The owners manual has procedures for manually closing/locking the top.

SOURCE: top won't go down, sometines it won't go up

I have seen this problem many times. One of your microswitches is either giving a false reading or fell of its retaining bracket. It is much easier to diagnose with a scan tool. My first guess would be that your retractable cover in the trunk lost it's switch input. Check the switch that is contacted when your cover is pulled out. If that is o.k. look inside the hard top deck lid cover very carefully and you will probably see either a broken wire or a loose switch. You may have to manually close your top becuse the switch inputs are illogical. Your manual will tell you how to close your roof.

You are probably low on fluid.
Behind the rear seat is your motor/pump/reservoir combination.
With the top down, fill the reservoir to overflowing with ATF.
Cycle the system a few times and repeat.
Do this till the reservoir will take no more fluid.
Check the lines and cylinders for leaks. The fluid must be going somewhere.
If you replace any lines or cylinders, always do them in pairs.

What will cause a sunroof not to close properly on a 2007 Milan

A lot of thing's , has sensors , switches , a control module , relay's etc....
The roof opening panel is an electronically operated panel that can be opened or closed by pressing a switch located on the overhead console. It also has one-touch open, one-touch close, one-touch vent open and one-touch vent close features.

Roof Opening Panel The roof opening panel assembly uses an integrated motor and module to operate the roof opening panel. The roof opening panel motor and module are installed new as an assembly. The roof opening panel is an electronically operated glass panel that can be opened, closed or tilted by the roof opening panel switch. Actuating the switch in either a forward or rearward motion supplies a ground to the roof opening panel motor/module. The roof opening panel has one-touch open and one-touch close features that are activated when the switch is momentarily pressed to the double detent OPEN or CLOSE position. These functions are controlled by the roof opening panel motor/module.
The roof opening panel motor must be initialized whenever the roof opening panel motor has been removed from the roof opening panel system, the roof opening panel assembly has been removed from the vehicle, a new roof opening panel motor has been installed or a new roof opening panel assembly has been installed.

The system is operated by hydraulic pressure the pump you hear is the hydraulic pump running, but your fluid has leaked out due to a problem in the lines or the cylinders that lift the top, you have to tear it apart and find the leaking parts.

My car metal roof is making noises like asif it is stuck somewhere and its not closing properly ? any ideas

When the roof is closing and it stops does it make a juddering noise or is it quiet. First of all open the roof fully and check that the guide rails on either side are free of dirt, use a paint brush and WD40 and use plenty of cloths to prevent dirt splashing every where. I have a '96 E-class but I think the roof mechanism is very similar. If the roof make a juddering noise this is not so good. The motor is located above the left rear wheel in the boot. The mechanism consists of a toothed cable driven by the motor through a pipe guide to the rear of the roof panel. You will have to disassemble this motor and gain access to its drive gear in order to clean it of metal shavings/debris and to re-grease it. It is a very frustrating job and one that may wish to leave to the Mercedes experts because even having rebuilt the motor there is a real knack to adjusting it. If the roof is just coming to a stop and not making any noise then you in luck. Locate the motor and the large central nut on top is the clutch adjuster. Tighten it by 1/6th of turn and try to close the roof again. Keep adjusting the clutch tighter until the roof closes. If you hear juddering noises, immediately slacken the nut off and the above notes will apply.

I have had my 04 Kia Sorento for 5 days & the sunroof is nuts!!!

According to the 2003 owner's manual (2004 should be similar) there is a specific procedure for calibrating the moon-roof's controller. The electronic controller may have lost its calibration settings due to an electrical glitch or disconnected battery.

Look up he exact procedure in your owner's manual as it may vary between different mdel years or OEM moon-roof suppliers.

85 Toyota Cressida. The Sun roof is stuck open!

I was lucky, the owners manual was still with the car and it addressed this problem. Tells you to remove the cover for the controls to the sun roof. Then remove the screw plug that is located in the forward left side of the control box hole (Need big screw driver to break it lose). Then remove the slug surounding the inner adjustment screw, being careful not to lose any shims or washers. Trun the adjustment screw counter clock wise to close the sunroof down and clock wise to shut the sunroof from the open position.
Looks like the motor is shoot. To prevent this from happening again I disconnected the white with black strip wire to the control pad and unsulated the lead. It can easiely be hooked back up in the future if the motor is replaced.
Good luck all!

Manual close for sunroof

You can try cleaning and lubricating the runners. The sunroof will open as soon as it is obstructed, eg. A childs arm in the way of closing. The problem here is that you can hear the motor running, wich indicates a broken cable, or a stripped plastic gear.
