all i have is the cable sticking out in the trunk, no motor, no
nothing. top had been taped to seal out weather previously. thanks
Yes, with the spark plug wrench thing in the tool bag... Wait a minute...
mmm... I am wondering if the motor unit is the one that has the crank...
On the driver side of the trunk... there is a slot where you can stick in a
wrench to crank the sunroof close... but now I am thinking... it is part of
So grab a plier and turn that cable until it is shut. If I were you, I'd get
a used motor off ebay and put it in.
Actually it is splined, but it's turned by the motor. The transport
is a plain tube, so pushing it would work if the cable wasn't frayed
and stuck, which it probably will be.
There also was a manual handle to open and close this roof available
(not in USA). I wanted to get one of the manual setups when my sunroof
died, but ended up replacing the cable...
