Default Sunroof Adjustment Question

Is my sunroof supposed to tilt up? When I close it all the way, the back of the sunroof dips down and is not level with the car. I assume there is an adjustment somewhere for the limits of that thing. Someone help.

there are 4 lil torques screws in each corner of the glass supports with slidding groves in them. you can loosen them and raise or lower the glass level. it only works to a certain level and it maxs out. I know on mine it is lower than the roof level too but i think its somethin to do with the track being messed up

I thought i saw somewhere that it sat just below the level of the roof for it to seal properly

My sunroof is not flush with the roof. It does sit a slight bit lower..maybe 1/16" or slightly more. If it didn't, I suspect it would leak pretty bad as CRUNKFUNK alluded to.

You've got two sunroof options vent and open. Vent it pop'* open and is tilted in the rear. Open it slides down and back.
