Hi, sunroof repairs are always a pain. In this model you can remove the cable drive separately and you may possibly wind up removing the whole sunroof carrier assembly to replace the cables and guides. This is something I would recommend only an advanced DIY to do.

How to close sunroof panel for BMW x3


1. Remove the panel above your centre rear view mirror.
(this is described in your cars owner manual)

2. When your rear sunroof is open, in the oppening gap you can see the control carriage. There is one Left and Right.

3. Take a screw driver and push both carriages backwards (use some but not extreme force). Possibly you can move one side and not the other, this is the symptom of the defect.

4. Take your (on board) hex wrench tool, put in the hex hole of the motor above your rear view mirror.

5. Manually close the roof.

take care to do this correctly.
Hope this helps

2003 kia sorento sunroof jammed


spray WD40 on it, and try to work it into the mechanism with a toothbrush. This is a solvent and a lubricant, it may loosen it up by melting any dirt stuck in there. After an hour wiggle all the moving parts and see it loosens up and can move ok.

I have a 1999 chevy blazer I cannot close the


The sunroof is powered by the same circuit breaker that power's your power window, so if your windows work than the circuit breaker should be good. You needed test the switch to verify if works with; on the factory sunroof system the roof is controled by a sunroof module the module receives a signal from the switch then throws voltage to the sunroof motor. The motor and module are located between the sunroof assembly and windshield underneath the head liner. You would reconnected the switch and test to see if the sunroof motor is getting power when the switch is in use by testing the dark green wire when closing and a light green wire when opening. Test these wires at the sunroof motor with a ohm meter or test light. Also, check this procedure to repair...

Sunroof will not open


I think there is a good chance that the left side needs lubricating and the channels lubricated with a colorless non oil substance. The motor is probably working too hard and it burns it out. Darrell S

Broken sunroof. on one side (left) for a: 1993 vw passat cl


Each side of the sunroof has a cable. Over time, the track gets dirty and the mechanism sticks, which causes the cable to break. Continuing to use the sunroof will cause additional components to break. Repair involves removing the headliner. I spent $700+ to get mine repaired, which involved spending about $400 on special order replacement parts. Sunroof repair is fairly specialized and not something that the average Joe is going to be able to figure out.

Sunroof stuck open...electronic switch clicks when pushed to open position...but nothing when trying to close...can this be manually closed or is there a breaker or something that can be reset?


The roof slides along a channel actuated by a coiled cord.

Both of the cords pass along a gear attached to the Sunroof motor which pulles the cord tooth by tooth.

There are two plastic wedges that drop into the plastic slides on the sunroof (the plastic slides are behind the more forward metal slides.)

The plastic slides control the tilt of the roof when moved independantly. The plastic wedges join them.

If the roof moves too far back, it is possible for the wedges to stick up and jam the roof open.

This should never happen, but could if the two micro switches on the sunroof motor assy fail to provide feedback to the controller indicating the roofs position.

Access to the Sunroof motor requires you to drop the headliner.

To drop the headliner, the plastic pillar shrouds need to be removed front and back, the seatbelt bolts in the middle secion need to be removed, the oh-**** handle, the front visors, and cabin lights.

3 bolts hold the motor up.

With the motor down you can try* to manually actuate the cords using a flat screwdriver, but move the left and right side evenly a tooth at a time.

Of course of the plastic wedges are jammed, it's not going to budge.

Hope the info is helpful. good luck!

Sunroof will not close


In my experience this is not an easy fix, the Sunroof rail is either broken or the sunroof has jumped the track because of a foreign object or misalignment. Either way unless you know how to take the sunroof apart I would take it to the shop.
