    Alright, i'm gonna make this a project but need some advise. My crx sunroof opens all the way but stops halfway when trying to close it. Is it my motor that needs to be replaced? WHen i take the sunroof of f the tracks and reinstall it, it will then close all the way. Also when i open it half way (cause if i open past half way it wont close) and try closing it, it doesnt shut all the way.

    I really love the sunroof and dont want to get rid of it so if you came across this problem b4 let me know what you did to fix it? All your input is greatly appreciated!! Oh the car is a 89 crx si.

    Possibly something is bent or caught up inside.

    Take it apart again and check for any loose bolts or pieces of junk/rust sitting in the track. If you cant find anything, then its possibly the motor.
