SOURCE: Renault Clio sport R Reg - leaking manual sunroof

I had the same problem with a 51reg clio expression.
Only way to fix it was to remove the sun roof from the car, clean all the old sealant from the rim, apply new windscreen/sunroof type silicone to the sunroof rim and re-fix.

If you remove the inner trim of the sunroof you can access the 10mm bolts which clamp it to the roof.

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.

SOURCE: sun roof wont open all the way up/downbutton doesnt work at all

What shape is the sunshade in? is it interferring with the movement of the sunroof? Also, there is a control module which activates the UP/DOWN feature as well as the BACK/FORWARD function. The problem may be as simple as bad contacts in the control switches. Go to http://www.hmaservice.com/ and register. There you will find lots of technical info about your vehicle.

Front passenger floor wet from rain, where is leak at?


Do you have a sunroof or moonroof? If so the problem is going to be in the drain for that sunroof or moonroof. If you open the roof, on either front corner you will see a small circular hole. Take some compressed air and blow it through each of those holes. You may see debris come out of the bottom near the back of your wheel well. Take cup of water and slowly pour that near those holes and make sure it goes through. Usually when that drain is clogged the water from a rain storm will flood into the passenger cabin.

Manually close sienna moonroof


not sure if a manual close is possible

if weather is an immediate problem some perspex and duct tape is a good solution

best locate the motor and remove the motor or get 12 volts to it
see if it moves

the motor ( 14 ) is towards the front of the sunroof up behind the plastic roof moulding

Sunroof


The sun roof has nylon gears that pulls the roof back and forward when activated. There is one on both sides of the sunroof track in the rear corners of the roof track housing. Unfortunately they are not replaceable by themselves and must be purchased as a unit for the whole roof track system. The cost of the replacement and labor to have it installed (if you can find someone to do it) is up to $1500 so isn't very practical to replace based on the value of the car itself. Better off to just work the broken piece out and manually put roof back in place in shut position and not use anymore, at least that was my experience with the one my daughter owns.
