Default Sunroof question

I have a problem with my sunroof. If I push teh button to open it it will only open half way then stop. If I push teh button again it will open all the way, then start clicking when it'* all the way open, but the motor is still trying to open it more. If I open it to vent, then close it, it goes right to opening the window. Any ideas what I need to check?

you need to replace the track assembly, it is not the motor or the controller

'Listing' those instructions would be an effort in futility. You need a service manual to go in that deep. Travis just did it last weekend, and it was a bitch.

That sounds like a lot of work, I may just leave it. Pushing the button is not that big of a deal. I thought it was just a limit switch or something simple.

I heard it wasn't too bad and they verbally gave JY monkey'* the directions..

Something about 20 minutes in the parky lot. While the manual should be a must.. let'* toss out the general info. There'* a few people that are in need and could use a basic rundown.

I can do it in 10 mins now
When I get pics ready I can do up a tech info.

Here'* a cliff notes:
remove headliner or at least drop the rear half
retract glass into roof
from the top of roof opening remove screws holding track assembly to roof (do not remove 2 of the screws, one on each side , second from the back.)
move glass to closed position
remove 2 screws holding motor onto roof
remove 2 screws holding transmission to roof
pop up glass/track assembly , pull forward to remove (being carefull not to scratch roof)
reverse process to install donor track.

the synching process is fairly easy, but hard to explain. Lets wait till I do the writeup.

you can do it closed, you just have to remove the glass first ( 6 screws hold the glass on, you may have to remove the 3 screws on the through assembly also to get at the 6 glass screws.) with the glass closed, look at the front glass, see those 3 screws? remove them and push that whole assembly back. now you can remove the 6 glass screws and pop the glass off.
