Hi Midnight Tech,
I've been wanting to remove the glass sunroof but haven't been able to find much information on the proper procedures.
My Haynes manual doesn't cover that for some reason. What I did manage to find on the web was the following:
The procedures provided seem to present some problems of their own for me to accomplish my task. You will probably agree as you see what info they give . . .. .
Procedure #1 stated "Open the sliding moon roof."
My problem here is that my engaging the switch seems to work the motor but doesn't move the class open and back.
Procedure #3 says "Remove the roof headliner." which I'm guessing is the interior panel above. It doesn't say how to do that. Also, there is a rear A/C unit that appears to be attached to this "headliner" which would probably need to be removed (Where does it say how to do that ?). This A/C unit is between the sunroof (just forward of) and the front seats (just above and back) of the driver & passenger seats from one side to the other.
Procedure #6 says "Remove the drive motor retained by two nuts and a bolt. Disconnect the wiring attached to the motor." Nowhere does it say exactly where it is.
Fortunately, by my engaging the sunroof switch (located in the middle of the rear A/C unit), the motor turns which I can hear (I think that is what I heard). The electric motor sound comes from under the rear A/C unit (approx. two-thirds from the middle where the switch is towards the passenger side doors) AND probably under the headliner as well.
I'm glad there were a few drawings, though more illustrations and/or photos would always be helpful for some of us. Knowing the tools to use and having warnings of potential damaging manuevers could certainly help a novice succeed.
Sorry if I've been too wordy here. Hope you or others can help.
