00' blazer jimmy moonroof sunroof??

7 posts in this topic

While hysterical me was laughing at my buddies green face after a fart the moonroof sunroof he was openeing sounded like a snap or a crack and then jammed open. It goes forward to close for about an inch or so then hangs up. it goes back an inch or so and hangs up. or so it sems like its hanging up. in the interst of not spending money id leave it be except its extremely annoying goign down the highway even with the top sliding interior panel closed. A guy at the dealer( who I thought was being kind of a jerk) told me that theyd have to look at it and it would cost money and id have to make an appointment. He offered no thoughts or possible costs or scenarios for what might be the problem without lookign at it( hence the negitivty). Any ideas??

Get in touch with a body shop. We send all our sunroof work to a couple of shops near by.

Bassboy,

Sun roofs are a pain to work on. I would try to get closed and never use it again, if you do not want to spend any money.

The dealership/garage will most likely charge a check out fee because it takes time to tear into a sun roof and figure out what’s wrong. They figure, if you bail on repairs they need to recoup some money for the tech's lost time. Hence, no mechanic works for free, unless it is the in-laws vehicle! You also will have to make an appointment, because if garage or dealership has someone who can work on it, they are mostly booked up for the day, because of pre existing appointments for other customers. Some times they are just letting you know the facts and not being mean. Also a dealership or garage is not the Red Cross! When they give out free info, it goes against the grain of the workings of a shop (hence they are their to make money). IMO

I like to give out free info on FM, because I like to help my fellow FM'er. I help and give out more info than I ever would in dealership service isle. In the dealership, it will cost ya! Here I am a nice guy!

Sounds like track broke, because it moves a little bit!

It will not be cheap to fix! I would shoot out a price of around $300-$600. $1200 plus could not be out of the question!

Good luck!

Yep, pretty much what Airjer said. In our shop, if someone has a sunroof problem the guys all run like mad. Some sort of major dislike. But the thing is with sunroofs is the module or track mechanisim is very expensive. Not a lot of servicable parts. I checked the GM part and it's over a grand. Good luck!

Airjer and Dan,

You guys are correct! I have only worked at 2 dealerships that would work on them. It takes a guy with thin arms and small hands! grin.gif

Another option is to try Dealer Automotive Services in Hopkins. One dealership I worked at would sublet out to them.

Thats funny Dan! Those tickets will sit on the counter all day long!!! I can't believe they want a grand for one of those.

Shack, we send quite a few customers to DAS. They are a good bunch of people. Mostly send them those aftermarket a/c's on those conversion vans. Those can be a real pain!! Wait for the parts, the parts show up, wrong parts sent, wait for more parts, parts break removing the broken parts, order more parts, more wrong parts sent, well you get the idea! confused.gif

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
