My rear shade wouldn't open
Front sunroof only goes back 4-5 inches. Front sunroof shade won't close.
Is there a campaign on this issue it appears very common especially in these years. Also a very expensive fix, a reset won't work.
I hit the main sunroof switch and the shades retract but the sunroof stops moving. Dealer said it needs new motors and drive cable at the cost of $4,000. I am looking for a cheaper mechanic to do this repair for less money but still do quality work.
Sunfoor works fine. Shades are stuck open
The shade will not close but the sunroof opens and closes
shade will not close
