The motor in my sunroof went bad does anyone know how hard it is to change or how to change it
jk, it's not too hard to pull, what exactly went bad - the whole shebang or just one of the actuators that makes it open or close?
ummm not sure when i hit the switch it sounds like its trying to open but nothing happens
there are two actuators; one that opens the roof and one that closes it. so there you go. the motor's fine, the actuator's crap, and if i recall due to the amount of plastic involved, those are pretty much not fixable (at least in any permanent way). best bet might be to buy a replacement assembly off of someone parting out their car.
if you help it along will it move? and is it slow moving im both directions? if so then its most likely the motor that went bad. and there is only one of those. unfortunately its kind of a pain in the dick and you have to drop the headliner in order to replace it.
sounds like the motor is working. the actuator isn't moving the panel. but whatever.
that part's for sure, and the only way you'll actually see wtf is going on.
or if you cant find used parts or want new OEM.
They sell OEM honda parts at 30% cheaper, they have saved me tons on replacement parts.
Or you can just sell Dacheat your crx. lol
that's the best plan for all involved, really.
ok it doesnt move at all before it stopped working entirely i had to help it
Good luck at a recycler but its the cheapiest. I would go with the new OEM stuff
I get my stuff from hondapartscheap.com but the other one given will work well too
