Postby lalojamesliz » Fri Dec 16, 2011 5:09 am

hey guys my sunroof on my 91all-trac makes a noise like it needs lube so im guessing its time to service it. Do i just dump some grease on the tracks or do i remove it to lube it up? Anyone know how to remove the sunroof?

The sunroof is a entire seperate unit that is bolted to the roof of the car. You have to remove the headliner to remove the assembly. I have one sitting in my garage right now that I could take a picture of if you wish :) Not sure about what lube to use or buy.

I've used lithium grease and it works great, lasts long.
