Today I went to vent the sunroof and it made a stripping kind of noise up to tilt and also when going back to closed. Also the sunroof will not slide back more than an inch and get stuck sounds like the motor is straining. Hope it might be related to the drivers window switch that gets glitch every so often. 39k on car and everything just works fine on the car. Any ideas, help me out.
Thanks for you response. It is factory sunroof on this vinyl top car, big too. It seals fine but little rip in the rubber that would leak on rear seats until I put electrical tape to temp seal that area. I now park down hill when possible.
Yes same switch as manual. The sunroof is not loose in any way that I can see. It may be the cold weather but that stripping noise when going up or down in tilt is loud. I dunno, if you have any ideas I'd appreciate it.
I'll do another inspection in the garage later this afternoon.
Yes the switch and operating instructions are the same in the manual and my car.
Got a hold of my Cadillac mechanic and says that the motor is located between the visors and that is where the sounds are coming from. Stripping noise and motor fading out noise us right there. this will be first step. Find out in spring I guess. Anyone have that sunroof motor? For sale?
