99 SVT Sunroof
#1289898 - 07/31/06 01:44 AM

I just bought a 99 SVT Yesterday, among some other problems, the sunroof does not work correctly. It seems to lift, the motor I think is excessively noisy, it wont go back and when you put it back down, you really have to help it. The motor does seem to be working though. Any advice on what to check or replace?

Ok well i tried playing with the sunroof today, When the sunroof moves up or down there is a grinding noise the whole time it is moving and it has trouble closing. Is this an indication of a stripped out gear? It does not want to move back out of the way at all, i suspect it is not coming up all the way.

Not sure... My tracks were broken by a dealership so they got fixed by the dealership. Also, I dunno how much it would cost either. Sorry, I'm not much help.

If it's NOISY, the gear has Warped already, you need to obtain a replacement. I have a spare for sale if you wanna PM me, otherwise there are other sources, you'll have to take apart the assembly to double check...(www.sunroofgears.com) HAS DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS on how to remove the sunroof motor assembly and replace the gear.

I just put a new gear in, the motor works fine now. But even when i try to hand crank the sunroof it wont retract. It will vent in the rear but it wont even budge to retract the glass, I dont know how to go about fixing that.
