'09 Kia Spectra Sunroof - Off-Track?
on: August 09, 2014, 12:42:57 PM
My '09 Kia Spectra EX seems to be having some issues with the sunroof.. It will open, close.. But, when I hit the button to just raise it, I hear a horrible sound.. And I noticed while looking on the outside of the vehicle, the rear driver-side corner of the sunroof is slightly lower than the other side.. It doesn't leak.. But something seems off here.. is this something your average Joe can repair or is this too intricate? Thanks for any info!!

That is a hard question because we don't know your abilities or knowledge of the system.  You should start by inspecting the track and mechanism to be sure there isn't any foreign materials lodged in anything.  If you don't see anything, unusual that is when it gets a little more hairier because you have to remove the headliner.  Then you need to inspect the track, cables, and other components to figure out what went wrong.

DS gives great advice.  I remember seeing something on youtube about a tiny pebble causing chaos in a sunroof track.
