Repairing the sunroof on a 4.5
Took a look at the sunroof tonight and found the problem.
I started at the trunk end with the motor. It turned out on close inspection to be fine. All the gears were in good shape. Inside i removed the headliner carefully pulling it out of the retaining strip. Here was the problem. The tube from the rear is suppose to align with the one in the roof. But it had got out of alignment somehow? Probably due to a poor attempt at repair before.
The cable was badly kinked. I took off the small retaining clip at the end of the tube and was able to remove the cable completely. Just need a new cable and re lube everything.
All the best John.
