We finally have some warmer weather here and so I decided to have my step-dad help me try and diagnose the problem with my sunroof.
I have tried looking for other people with close to the same problem and I am not really sure what exactly is wrong, and so I am not sure....I don't think I have any problems with the moon roof wind deflector in this post
The motor itself seems to be working fine. You can hear it working and it doesn't make any unpleasant sounds. It runs for a long time and then the glass opens about a half an inch in the back, and if you want it to go back down you have to push it down yourself.
This is my first car with a sunroof and I'm not positive, but I am pretty sure it is supposed to do more than that.
After he took the glass off, we could see the track and it looks like the whole arm that the glass screws on to should move back so that the glass is actually over the roof of the car a little bit. But I am not sure....
He moved the arm up and down manually to try and see what the problem might be, and we found this little piece broken off and just laying there, and he didn't break it off himself.
When we looked closer we found the metal arm? (not sure what to call it) that it is supposed to be connected with, and it clearly wasn't. We only found one broken off piece, but the metal arms on both sides were not attached to anything.
We took off the metal arm and the end of it that wasn't attached to anything fit perfectly onto the broken off piece. And I put it into the spot that made the metal arm actually fit into both spots, the farthest back area where it is in the picture below and where it screws in to the sunroof arm in the down position.
Has anyone else had a problem like this and if so will I have to replace the whole track for the sunroof or just a few parts?
Any help or advice is appreciated. Thanks!!
