Are you sure its glued shut? I know that those sun roofs are notorious for being a POS. You have to push mine up with your hand. You can hear my motor when you push the button, but it still needs a helping hand when you try and push it back. Try that, otherwise the rails might be rusted? Why would anyone want to glue it shut?



BTW: No, I haven't taken it apart, but I will be doing it once I get my new motor.

i never swaped sunroofs either but im going to soon, as the one in my tii does not work either. you prob just have to take off your headliner, get to it and unscrew a bunch of screws,lol and replace it. it'll be a good sunday project post up results if you do it, so i dont have any surprises

bascially if you take the headliner out, the whole sunroof comes out in 1 assembly

Some of the bolts are for adjusting the roof so its flush. Make sure you unbolt the rite ones or youl be there all day unbolting the wrong bolts. After you install the "new" roof, you will need to use the adjuster bolts to align it right so the roof can open properly.



Its a pretty heavy piece, so have a friend around.

Oh yah, the headliner doesnt come off in one piece without removing the edgeing(?) around the opening of the roof. So if you wanna save the headliner, try to bust off the lid off from the old roof to unhook the headliner.
