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!

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?

Sunroof will not open properly without grinding noise. Lexus service offered no solution except a roof replacement.
