Sunroof problems

Cant get the sunroof in my 92 to close. When i got the car the guy said it wouldn't close,and if it would close it would just open to vent mode and stay there. Fuse is good,idk about the motor for the sunroof itself though,what all do i have to check and what all should i check? Switch lights up so i know it has power going to it.

If you pop off that circular cover in your headliner, there is a manual override for the sunroof. You will need the crank for it though. It should be included in with your tire iron. I can't remember off the top of my head but I think it's a hex drive so you may be able to use an allen wrench to crank it closed.

It is a hex drive, so an appropriate sized allen wrench will do the trick. Does the motor work at all?

Im not sure if the motor is good or not,it might be the switch. Everything got drenched in the 2-3yrs before i bought it. I didnt think to check that out though,atleast itd be closed and i can take my plastic wrap off lol

I was just wondering if it didn't work at all or if it just budged a little like it was jammed. You have a wiring diagram?

You can manually close it with a 5 or 6mm hex. I just replaced the entire glass portion of the sunroof, and I fully removed the entire frame from the car to do so. Even if the wiring is shot, you can open and close manually just like they mentioned above. My car has no power and I've opened and closed it a few times to test and check on things.

Man, you must like wrenching! The glass can be replaced from the top.

I didn't know you could replace it from the top until after it was already done. Besides this allowed me to re-glue on the seals that had almost all come off. I did have a side goal to dropping the sunroof frame though. I was going to see if I could fix any of the roof that was dented from the inside. Turns out it wasn't possible, so I kinda wasted time.

I'm curious to see though if fixing all of the seals will cut down on some wind noise inside the cabin.

I practiced on a sedan in a JY before I eventually found an intact glass panel for my coupe.

Looks like you may need to at least drop the headliner to troubleshoot further.

I think I'm just gonna replace the motor and switch,if that doesnt work I'll just take it all the way out and put a piece of plexiglass in place of it

You can get a whole new assembly (used) for $50, seems a shame to just stick plexiglass in when you'd have to take the whole assembly out anyway.

I think i need new tracks on it,there's a ton of slop in the sunroof,i almost got it closed the other day,itll get like 1/2in from closed then slide back. That was with a 5mm hex key,the switch has power until you press a button

On all 3 of the sunroof frames I have taken out now, all the of the nuts holding the tracks in the rear were loose. I can see this causing you some issues with it closing. Also the gear gets a ton of worn out rubber packed into it. If you remove the frame you can undo the bolts that hold in the "screws" that move the window frame back and forth. Once this pops off a ton of packed in rubber should fall out. Sorry I can't describe this better.

Just be very careful taking the headliner out of the car. I broke the tabs off on the rear that support it to the roof. I ended up using Gorilla Glue Epoxy to reattach them and haven't had an issue. Just something to be aware of. Otherwise to remove the sunroof it's just an electrical plug and 10x 6mm bolts.
