I posted this on an old thread thinking that maybe someone would see it that involved in the initial post, but it's been silent since I posted about 3 weeks ago. I had to replace some of the track pieces in the sunroof that were broken. When I put it all back together, I made sure to have the drill bits in the alignment holes before installing the motor. Put the assembly back up, and can't seem to get it to re-learn where the 'closed' position is. I've got the instructions that came with the kit from Sunroofdoctor, and I'm following them as far as I can tell. I took a video of both the instruction sheet and me trying it out. If anyone can tell me what exactly I'm doing wrong I'd greatly appreciate it. I can bump it up little by little to get it to the closed position, but I'd rather not put the headliner back up until it's fixed in case I have to take it back down. For those of you that have done it, you know it's a pain in the ass to remove and reinstall. Thanks again for the help guys!

Here's a video of me attempting the procedure with instructions:

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!!!!! I didn't see this reply until just now. My email notifications must be all messed up. I'll try it when I get home from work and report back with the results.

Sadly no. I was going to take another video but the weather has been bad here whenever I have free time. I consciously hold it down longer than the 10 seconds, and it still stops just short. Thinking I might let the motor stop at what it thinks it closed, remove the motor (without unpluging it), manually bringing the sunroof the the actual closed position, and then mounting the motor back in place. I'm just wondering if I'll be able to get to the screws on the motor seeing as how they come in from the top. Don't know if there is room with the unit being installed in the vehicle. Might have to drop the back of the unit down a bit. Doesn't sound like fun. Kind of an FML deal.

If it's jammed up, your best option is to bite the bullet and remove the assembly. It sucks, but it's better than breaking something like I did and having to take it down in the end anyway. Odds are, one of the pins in the carriage assembly came off track. Sucks dude (chick?).

Glad you got it temporarily fixed. Mine broke, I ordered the parts in the next couple days, and then took about 5 years to actually take the headliner down and do the repair.
