Sunroof problem. What do you think?
Today I took the liberty of adjusting the height of my sunroof to sit flush with the car roof on my 2002 sle. Now I've had to do this a couple of times before, but I got it so perfect this time that I just had to try it out right away and make sure it still opened and closed in the same possition. I hit the "Tilt" button... It went up! And back down to where I adjusted it. Now I hit the "Open" and it begins to slide back... About 3/4 of the way open I hear this whicked loud gear-slip sounding grind noise like a stick shift in the wrong gear. So I quickly pushed the button to bring it back to the closed possition and it did just that as usual, with a couple of grinding noises on it'* way back, but never jolted or struggled. It settles and closes right where I adjusted it again like nothing happened. I decide to hit the tilt button to see if after all that it would still go up. Geuss what? It tilted up, nice and level and smoothly too. I closed it and hit the open button again and only the driver side of the sunroof drops down to slide back, leaving the passenger side in it'* closed possition along with that crazy grinding noise from the side already lowered ready to slide back. I noticed when the sunroof is closed I can pop the lifting passenger side up with some pressure about 1/4 inch. I cannot, however, do this to the drivers side. It'* dark now so i went out and adjusted the tightness of the screws to losen them just a little, ran my finger along the track, tried to move the lift arm, wiggle this pinch that kind of thing. Everything is tight except for that pop upwards I can make it do. I will be outside tomorrow trying to figure this out more in depth, but I wanted to know what everyone thinks about it or if you have had a similar bad happening.
Help and suggestions are greatly appreciated!
