By open it do you mean slide it into the roof or tip the back up? if you are trying to slide it into the roof the slides pads may be broken.




when i push the button the sunroof dips down on the back side then stops idk what it is but it seems like the one side of the tracks is not on bc the one side dont move as much . it only tips up it doesnt go back into the roof it stops make noise once the back dips down

sunroofs are neglected most of the time by not being lubed and causes them to freeze or operate sloppy. the tracks and motor need to be lubed to avoid these things from happening.

so i should grease everything up and that should work?
if not how would i be able to push the sun roof back to see whats wrong? and fix it

I just replaced mine. I will try to show u some pics of what breaks and what goes where.yes neglect but I had two issues one is the is two clips on each side of the track that interlock and complete the three functions mine was broke. Also can you manually turn it with the Allen key in the motor? Careful not to force AT ALL. If its tweak chances are it's broke. Hope it helps a lil
