^^^
That's a really good writeup.
Very good advice about keeping the guides lubricated up.
Good way not to burn out your sunroof motor :wink:

I took mine out to fix a broken plastic guide & fab up a missing rubber wheel that fits on one of the guide rails (sunroof was popping up everytime I slammed the door).

Hrm mine pops up when i close the door, i thought it was just normal. It works fine but the motor sounds like its having a hard time, then it will stop half way, i push the button again and it will move the rest of the way. Stops in the same spot every time. Guess i will have to take mine apart one day and clean it up. Good writeup, that guy doesnt even have a celica anymore lol.

The stopping is a safety feature. It's so kids and such won't easily close the SR on their neck.

guess you don't have a owners manual, either that or you haven't read it.

Hmmm the link doesn't work for me. Did you have any problems using it Silence?

Have to fix mine and while I await my tax refund so I can get my motor I figured I would get some of the other odds & ends out of the way :P
