My sunroof will not close all the way. It slides back fine but when i attempt to close it the sunroof will stop about 3/4 of the way.

My roof opens just fine. On the way closed it shakes the entire roof and stops to reverse itself half way closed. Now it will BARELY close on its own. We're talking slower than a snails pace to close. I feel like it needs lubed up but I don't know what to use. Suggestions?
The torx bolt became loose and lodged in the UltraView sunroof track. Further attempts to use the sunroof caused the motor gears to become stripped. Replacing the sunroof motor solved the problem.

the roof opens fine but makes a horrible " clacking" sound and does not want to close all the way. I have to keep hitting the close button to get it shut.

Moon roof won't close all the way - no fix yet. My wife likes Cadillacs, but personally I believe they are poor quality puffed up Chevy's.

My sunroof is off track when I try to open it. It sounds like it's about to break the glass.

Moon roof stutters and is slow to close. Last time I needed to help it by hand
Sunroof won't close all the way
The sunroof would open halfway then get stuck. Closing was even of a hassle....making a loud noise and sounding like it was going to die. We just kept it closed. One day driving on freeway and at first it sounded like one of my kids started rolling down window so before i can even tell them to stop, the whole sunroof went flying off. Thank God noone was behind me or got hurt. Going thru insurance now just to get a window back in...Cadillac has to really look into this problem.

Sunroof fails to open.
Bought the SRX with 195,000 miles. The sunroof has never worked...would be nice if it did! I wince just thinking about the cost of a new motor to make the sunroof functional.

One of the clips that hold the sunroof shade broke therefore I can not bring forward or retract the shade itself. Is there any way the release the tension spring itself so I can keep the shade in a closed position ?

Sunroof won't completely close a lot of the times, until after several attempts.

Sunroof started out slow moving. Then it got stuck open. The motor was spinning free. I had to manually close it by making short pulling motions. I was standing inside back driver side door as I gradually pulled sunroof closed.
