There is a spring loaded deflector plate spanning the the width of the sunroof. It has nylon bands that are supposed to have enough tension to keep this mechanism out of the way when the sunroof closes. When the bands wear out, the deflector plate sits too high, causing it to get stuck between the sunroof and the seal. I can't seem to find the parts to fix this. For now, I just hold the deflector plate down with my middle finger while closing. Although it looks like the the sunroof is going to close on your finger, I've done this like a 1,000 times without injury. Has anyone had any luck repairing this?
Sunroof will not vent and when it closes it does not seal in the back. If you hold the deflector up while closing the sunroof the glass panel will raise up and seal. Good think we figured it out yesterday as today was a huge rainstorm. Even if this is covered under my extended warranty I hate to pay $100 to get it fixed.
Sunroof opens, but doesn't close completely. Leaves about 1/2 inch gap. Even if I pull down on the plastic guide, it stops 1/2 inch short. Dealer isn't clear weather or not this is covered by my extended warranty. They state I may have to pay up $800 if not covered. But they will only tell me after its been removed. Help anyone?
Same exact problem.
Car is in the Ford Dealer today...
100 dollar deductible to replace the tracks, but unknown what caused it.
I may have used the sunroof about 10 times since I've owned it.
Appears to be a defect.
Roof stopped closing properly, then after a few move times of it being used, it stopped working. It sunk down on the roof, not level with roof.
Sunrise Ford charged me $1400 to fix and it has been working OK, but it still sticks once in a while, the say there is nothing wrong. They're probably waiting for the warrantee of the work to run out.
