How to Troubleshoot a Sunroof That Won’t Close

13

A sunroof is an excellent way to get additional sun or air into your vehicle. There are several different versions of sunroofs; most open and close automatically with the touch of a button. If your sunroof suddenly becomes stuck open, and it’s rainy or cold outside, you’ve got a major problem. The two main causes of a stuck sunroof are a lack of power and debris stuck in the sunroof’s tracks.

Step 1

Remove the glass from the sunroof to access the lift arms. The guides that the lift arms follow may need to be pushed forward if they have become stuck in the open position. Use a screwdriver to push the guides forward so that the lift arms can fully close. Replace the glass once the lift arms are moving properly.
