'03 Forester XS: Sunroof all of a sudden wouldn't close. Would get to within 2" of close, then balk & back away, or stop. After repeated tries I finally got it to close.

Read the glove compartment-manual, called the Service mgr., got his suggestion... WD-40 or such on the outside pivot points of the pop-up wind deflector. He was right on.
Works fine.

How do you replace the sunroof motor on a 2004 Subaru Forester


Just out of curiosity, is it the motor that is faulty or one of the guides has broken? what are the symptoms you are experiencing?
IF you have a diagnosis and it is in fact the motor, here's how you replace it.
1. Fully close the sunroof glass, disconnect batt negative.
2. Remove Roof trim
3. disconnect Motor harness
4. Remove sunroof motor mounting screw and nut.
After installing the new motor you have to reset the sunroof motor.

A tip to help diagnose if you are just guessing for inop motor
(1) Check fuse for blow-out.
(2) Check switch for improper function.
(3) Check motor for incorrect terminal voltage.
(4) Check relay for improper operation.
(5) Check poor grounding system.
(6) Check harness for open or short and terminals for poor connections.
(7) Check limit switch for improper operation.

My 2000 Lexus RX 300 Sunroof is stock and is not closing. electric motor seem to be working but is stock in one position. any idea how to fix this sunroof?


I have the same problem..... took my 2000 RX300 to the dealer - was told they need to replace the motor and the tracks and quoted me a price of $4500.00...... NO THANK YOU.... This dealer will not sell parts for this to local garages. Can't believe they can get away with that. Since I don't really us it a mechanic told me to take it to a glass company and just have them seal it closed to stop leaks.

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.
