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?
moon roof stops about 1/4 inch lower than top of roof have to play with button to get it to stop manually in right position any sulutions
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?
Moonroof doesn't close and doesn't vent. Leaves a small gap in the back and not fully forward in the front.
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.

As it closes, one side doesn't go down far enough to completely close. I have to stand outside and hold the bar down before it pinches my finger.
The sunroof gets stuck and won't open. It sits about a 1/4 inch down when it is closed. Seems like everyone has this problem with all years.
Moonroof seemed to bind a little about a year ago. A small piece of plastic popped out when closing. A few days ago it wouldn't open or close prperly, moving it back and forth with buttons, I got it to close ( I hope) however the binding became a snapping noise, took it in to ford dealership - they said the track had to be replaced at $1300 estimate. Now I have to try and seal it up with silicone to keep the water out. What a cheaply made moonroof from Ford ! Should be a recall on this. many posts - same problem.
The back part of the window would not lift completely to make an even seam with body. This caused the front of the window to stick up slightly in the front. After about a year, the plastic attachment on the right side of the slide mechanism came apart.
