sunroof won't shut all the way. thousands to fix. lexus, really? really?
Sun Roof drags along tracks when closing making a grinding noise.
Grinding / popping noise while opening. Motor is straining while opening and closing (have to assist with my hand to get it closed). The guide rails appear OK but the lube looks pretty dried up. Is there a after-market repair kit or has anyone found a fix-it video on youtube?
The sunroof is not closing properly. 30,000 miles
Opens but wont close. Theres now a repair kit for $385 to fix it.
Sunroof jammed, some part broke off. Had hardly ever used it. Really annoying!
Took it to Lexus and they said it would cost 2500.00 to take apart and diagnose. I have not used it since - now I have 44,000 miles and hope it is welded shut from not using!
Unfixed, we noticed it was not opening or closing properly
My car has been garage kept when you open the sun roof it has rust in several places but the macananics works vin I will go to small claims court before I pay 1500.00
sunroof does not close properly
Sunroof will not open properly without grinding noise. Lexus service offered no solution except a roof replacement.
