Question about 1999 Subaru Legacy
Cant open sunroof but motor turns
Same problem mine will only work when it is warm out because of the gasket. When there is the slightest difference in colder temperatures I need to press on the top of the sun roof while hitting the button to have it slide. Using the gasket cleaner may be a good idea. I haven't tried that yet though so don't take my word

I had a similar problem when I bought my used 99 Legacy. The dealer was going to replace the sun roof, but never followed through. Mine would open every now & then. Once when I got it opened, I cleaned the rubber gaskets with silicon lubricant. Since then the roof has always opened for me. That was 3 years ago, and it is still works every time!

Junkyard for around $250, +/-. Easy job, but need time, room and patience as entire headliner has to come out to access and replace.

I had the same issue caused by a broken cable. Subaru does not sell just the cable, you need to purchase the entire assembly. The total bill was $1100, parts and labor.
