sunroof motor interchangeability?

Postby wannabe toms racer » Wed Jun 12, 2013 12:14 am

Hello all!
My sunroof motor is malfunctioning. It wont do anything but come down as if to retract into the roof, but instead imediately goes back up.... :doh:
So i pulled the lil bugger apart n discovered the plastic gear inbetween the metal two was been half eaten.
Im wondrin if maybe i can scoop one out of a same year camry or something idk i cant find the pn its all crusty.
Ne thoughts?
TIA!

I am actually in the same boat as you. I would assume grabbing a motor from the same years of the chassis would be okay. Meaning like the Gt or Gts of 90-93. I am going to grab a st-Gt-Gts or maybe even a Camry one and see if they look the same at the junk yard. I am sure they won't charge no more than $10 for that motor at the junk yard.

The Camry motors are the same, but the control units are different. I had to replace both in my 90 gt

FWD motors work but the control units are different. Same thing as the Camry. It still works but makes for "quirky" operation.

Also have this issue. Wish I could just pull the motor and have it sit snugly in the roof.
