Does anyone know how much a new motor for the sunroof costs? Mine moves pretty slow. Also is it something I can do myself of definately a dealer install?

Thanks Guys,

Use some dry lithium grease on the tracks. That should free the sunroof up a bit. if you do have to replace the motor it's not hard to do, you'll have to drop the headliner out of the car but after that it's only 2 or 3 bolts that hold the motor in place.

If your sunroof is slower than it used to be try greasing it with lithium grease. It worked great for mine. Also I think our sunroofs are slower than most anyway. At least mine and both of my friends seem to be.

should have just made a new thread, this one is ancient :p

does the sunroof move if you give it a little help? most of the time, it's the rails that are getting all gummed up, or in my case, bent. It was making the motor work too hard. I had to replace my rails. The motor was actually just fine. what symptoms are you getting? does the motor sound like it's trying to move it and it's just stuck?
