well i went to open my sunroof for teh first time since winter struck today. it flips up but will only go back sometimes its like its sticking on one side (passenger) and when it does go back it makes a loud click. has anyone had similar problems? i was told that if theres a problem i have to order the whole assembley, sliders n tracks n what not from the dealer at a big expense. i have yet to take it apart as i am doing household renovations. if anyone knows somewheres to get parts let me know. i also tried to search for sunroof and never found much so maybe im the first?:weird::confused:

when mine busted, it would open and close and pop up, except the passenger side (the side with the broken part) i would have to help it along just to get it closed. as mine was stuck in the open position when it snapped... when the passenger side was broken and i let it alone it would stick and the motor would click. when u open or close it, do you notice one side drag behind the other side?

not saying that is whats wrong with yours, but if it is, got some extra direction for the repair.

Sorry to resurrect this thread. But mine is kind of like this, but no noises, no clicks. The motor pulls the sunroof down so it can slide and starts to slide on the driver side, but the passenger side it stays still with no movement. Then because it obviously cant go back crooked and stops. I can push the close option and it returns forward on one side and closes all the way. Vent mode works fine where it pops up. I wish there to be a way to just shoot some grease in there and it be fine. Please don't tell me I need this kit. Not trying to blow 119$ from my SS Clone Budget.

I know this is an old post, but I need help, I'm about to pull my hair out! I used the sunroof doc kit to replace everything on my '08 Trailblazer, and it opens fully and closes and raises up to seal in the proper closed position. But now it will not tilt up to the vent position. Has anyone else had this problem?

I rebuilt mine a while back and iirc there were two kits available, one had the vent function and the other kit did not. It may be the kit, or need some alignment. I used this video to do mine.



I hope it helps!
