The sunroof on my Forrester will not retract due to the glass not dropping on one side . I have tried cleaning the runner and greasing but no joy. Last year it kept stopping when closing and I had to keep repressing the button. Any ideas ,also can anyone recommend a good independent garage as near to Windsor where I can take the car for service and repair ? Cheers
Hi guys I recently had to replace my entire sunroof mech as some of the plastic guides in the runners had broken off and i couldnt see a way to repair them. This means ive got an entire spare unit with glass (cracked but water tight) and a working motor. Ive seen a few posts from people with damaged weather seals and motors so i thought id see if anyone wanted any of it before i chucked it. I'll keep the whole thing for a few days but ill put it out for the scrap men at the end of the week if i dont hear anything (i'll probably grab the motor off it first though) I'll probably let any of it go for free if you pick it up so let me know soon as.

Hi guys I'm having issues with my sunroof, it wont retract as the passenger side wont drop down with the drivers side. Ive had the glass off twice and everytime i take it off it i clean everything out, jiggle with it for a while and eventually get it moving perfectly, yesterday i tested it about 50 times back and forth before putting the glass back on. As soon as i put the glass back on it jams up again. This is doing my head in as i love the sunroof but cant use it. The sunroof has a big crack in it so im wondering if something has landed on it and damaged something on that side. I was wondering if anyone knew how to remove the runners and scissor mechanism from that side, there must be a way but i cant figure it out, im hoping i dont have to remove the roof lining to do it. If i can figure that out ill just go and take the whole mech out of a scrapped one as i was going to do that for the glass anyway. I know there's already been a few threads about sunroof problems so sorry for making another one. Thanks
