My sunroof is stuck in the tilt position. How do I drop the overhead console to replace the switch or check the wires to the motor?
Do you

Hello.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any more information.

Insert a flat head screwdriver in the center of the manual drive slot to depress the release pin. Rotate the screwdriver clockwise until the roof opening panel is closed.

The sun roof is stuck open and cannot get it to close. I have checked the fuses. I am looking for a schematic for the wiring on the sun roof. Or if any one can tell me how to get to the motor and where it might be? Need to close it it gets cold here and rains some of the time does not rain very often. I have checked with several people that do that kind of work here and they do not know, and have no schematic.

Thanks for any and all help or ideas.

I "think" you need top drop the liner. The motor is usually part of the sun roof assembly.
