Sunroof wont close on 1990 celica gti

I just got back home and went to close my sunroof, but nothing happened. i got the car (g plate) 6 months ago and living in england havent used the sunroof much but when i did it would stop half way closed and i would have to press the button again to close it all the way. is this normal on the car does anyone know? or was it the motors way of telling me it's dying? i checked all the fuses on the car and they're all fine. any help would be appriciated as i think it may rain soon!
thanks
paul

    1998 Toyota Camry - opened the sunroof after not being open for about 1 year. The sunroof opened but would not close any more. I checked all of the fuses and they are fine. When I hit the close button, I hear a clicking but the sunroof does not move.

Some cars sunroof regulators come with a couple settings in sunroof
1 the 30 degree back tilt
2 half open stop sun roof
3 full open sunroof
these are common on sunroofs

now lets look at what could be the cause
bad regulator or needed greased gears
track needs to be cleaned which can stick the wheels down
most sunroofed vehicle regulators or gear boxes you will find in the trunk way up by the wheel wells in that little compartment tight to get out
also there should be a manual crank for sunroof placed somewhere in vehicle i know for my bmw it was back in the trunk on the gear box you will have to call dealer or look in manual to find sunroof manual crank and how to close
recommend taken to the closes dealer and have them service your sunroof mechanicals and have it cleaned up
sunroofs like cars needs to be cleaned on a certain milelage interval so that it will work for a long time

I have a 1987 celica gts hatch back...and my close button and down button doesn't work for my sunroof but the open and up does and it stuck opened....how can I fix this or close my sunroof before it...


Some cars have a small plugged hole in the ceiling above the back seat. You can use an allen wrench there to close the sunroof..

I know Acura has it and several other cars. Try looking around on the headliner.

Hope this helps you

good luck

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.

Sunroof will not close


If you hear motor hum than it's probably a bad rail part. I have the same plastic rail part and both sides broke. Can't find a replacement anywhere.
