Question about Ford Expedition
Hello, This can be a repair with problems. You may save money on the Labor part, but look into what guarantees a Repair shop makes for leaks. Just 1 leak can ruin the headliner and other parts which cost more than you'd save in Labor.
A lot of Sunroofs were made by ASC, but you may have any brand and you need to know before ordering replacement parts. Your best move is to educate yourself in a Salvage yard. You would get the opportunity to see the parts up close. You may find it is cheaper to replace the entire mechanism with a Salvage part, than to buy a motor and repair parts from the Dealer.
There are shops which do this work, like Glass shops, and they may be cheaper than a Dealer. Another thing is that Sunroofs can be Generic. A Sunroof can fit several Models from 1 Manufacturer or between Manufacturers which gives you more of chance of finding compatible parts.
If you do this yourself, go to a Paint Supply for Autos for your adhesive and sealer. There are different types of caulk, with Marine grade being better. You may find some things on a Browser search once you Identify your Sunroof make.
I hope I have been very helpful in providing answers. I have installed Marine hatches on boats and Deck and Thru-Hull fittings. Check your fuse for the Sunroof motor, and check the guide bolts which can back out the frame and jam the track. I have found over the years that Plastic parts tend to break in the same spot and that guide bolts cause much of the problem.
