I have a 1980 C107 in great condition it has a cool huge sunroof on the top that dosent work.when i push the switch to open it the motor just runs for 1 second then stops but when you push it to the closed position the motor runs but the roof dosent move! could it be that the tracks are rusted or what?

Follow this link: Untitled Document

Page down to job #77, in the body and chassis section, and enjoy yourself. :)

The online appearance of the Service Manual on CD-ROM. A very handy resource.


Happy hunting.

I have that problem if I use IE to open it. Don't have that problem with Firefox.

the top goes into the car, so it opens downward then slides back. , you can force it along by repeating your 1-second trick , while someone else pushes on the back of the sunroof, once you get it to crack open with the switch (back and forth 100's of times) then you sort pry the front crack backwards toward the back, and try to get the slides to work, then, help it back forth with your hands, then you can remove it for real lubrication
