No this can not cause the track to bend.Someone was trying to shut the sunroof while the motor is not working ,or when it was working there was something in the way when it was being shut and that cause the track to become bent.

Asc sunroof was stuck open had to remove motor to close tested motor and it works fine. The control switch luminated however the asc button would not turn red. Help were should I look next?


These aftermarket ASC sunroof are among the best but they do require frequent lubrication and maintenance. Use WD-40 or other penetrating oil anywhere that appears rusty, and use a lightweight grease for all tracks, pivots, and gears. After thoroughly lubricating the tracks, gears, and pivots, check to make sure that the END STOP microswitches are properly adjusted and providing continuity. It is also possible that the controller has failed.

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.

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.

2006 honda ridgeline sunroof is stuck, will nor close tightly


Most common problem for sunroofs is debris like acorns, twigs, ect stuck in the track on the sunroof. Also, check for bent warped, or other out of place things causing the sunroof to reach it's limit causing it to shut down before closed completely. Remember, power windows, sunroofs, back glasses, nearly everything powered by an electric motor has a limit switch to protect if from damage.

2003 tiburon power sunroof won't close all the way . It'll open all the way but starts to close & then stops.


sounds like the metal deflector in front of the sunroof,is separated and caught in the roof mechanism, however there are other issues that can cause that condition, it can be anything from a bad sunroof switch to the sunroof tracks jamming, start with looking to see if there any obstuctions in the track..the sunroof mechanism can get costly to repair.

Sunroof won't operate


Sun roofs all have a common problem in design...Ther are all on the roof...and exposed to rain, dirt, dust, etc. etc. Your sliding tracks are probably clogged with the above mentioned and are causing a binding in the track sleeves which makes the motor work much harder and causes the motor brushes to overheat and stall or burn up completly. Next time the motor is replaced, make sure the technician thoroughly cleans and properly lubricates the tracks, sleeves, and guides.

97 Grand Prix sunroof off track


My 97 Grand Prix sunroof tracks are offset. My driver side track is in the closed position, and the passenger side track is in a half open position. When the problem happened I was closing the roof and heard a hard clicking. It stopped working from that moment on. The tracks werent offset as much as they are now before I took the glass off. When I removed the glass, the passenger side track sprung back about 6 inches. The motor works, but the tracks only move about a half inch forward and backwards. Its cable operated and my guess is that one side jumped the track or a gear or something. Anybody help?

2003 Hummer H2 sunroof won't close


if you do not use the sunroof on a regular basis the water standing in the track fills the cable tube and causes it to rust. unfortunately the only way to fix it is to replace the entire sunroof track. they do not sell parts separately except for the motor. to test the motor remove the 2 screws in the cover the switch is attached to. slide the cover foeward and it will come off. leave the wires plugged in and take the 2 10mil bolts out of the motor and it will come off. then try the sunroof switch and see if the motor works. if so, you need a new track. if not check voltage to motor. sanders paint and body 34695
