Sunroof Help

Hey I'm new to the forum and I am not sure if this is where I need to be asking about this, but I just have a question about my sunroof motor.
It still works but it seems to be slowing down.
I'm assuming it is the motor.
Is there any way to fix it or make it open and close smoother?

Thanks.

Re: Sunroof Help

Well, this isnt really a permanent fix to your motor. But if it ever goes out completely, the Lude's have a little allen key that you can turn to close your sunroof located just a couple inches back from the sunroof...

Re: Sunroof Help

thanks for the response!
im aware of the allen wrench thing and i guess its pretty handy.
I'd jus like to have it open automatically rather than manually you know? lol

Re: Sunroof Help

the reason they slow down is due to friction.

Use a silicone lubricating spray and coat the tracks. It will make 100% difference.

X2!!^^

I thought my motor might have been dieing but a few weeks back Beaker suggested a re-lube. And man sure enough it slides back oh so smooth now. I suggest cleaning the channels and a good re-lube and see where you are from there.

Re: Sunroof Help

What perfect timing on this thread... Mine just started doing this today (when closing, not opening).
