Slow sunroof

So I recently replaced one of the sliders on my sunroof because it was broken. I thought that was the reason it was working so slowly. But after cleaning all the parts, sliders, rails, etc, I put it all together, and it still has a hard time closing. The motor is plenty strong, and I used grease on the rails and pivots for lubricant.

What has me stumped is that it works great w/o the glass installed, which makes me think its an alignment issue, but everything is straight as far as I can tell. The only thing I can figure is to wipe out all the new grease, and use a silicone lubricant as you all suggest. But why then would Honda originally use grease? I added some wd40 after the grease to make it thinner, but it only helped a little.

Any other tips?

Re: Slow sunroof

What grease did you use? Try wd-40

Re: Slow sunroof

I recently installed a 5th gen sunroof in my 4th gen and one side was opening before the other which wouldn't let it open at all. I had to take the glass out and the motor out and push both brackets all be way up then bolt the glass back on. Then Put the motor back in and it works flawlessly. I don't know how the one side got off alignment from the other but it proved that it can happen.
