I very, very rarely use my sunroof, but tonight I did so and was swiftly punished for the decision. The sunroof opened, but I could hear something crack as it did so. It then got stuck open very shortly before we had a torrential downpour. Fun times. Anyway ... The motor is still functioning and after some manual tugging while simultaneously hitting the button I was able to get the sunroof into a closed, but fully tilted position. I found a broken piece of plastic in the track on the passenger side and visual inspection shows something is clearly not sitting properly on that side. I believe it is one of the trough guides, but will be able to get a better look in the daylight when it isn't raining. Anyway, according to the service manual the sunroof needs to be closed to remove/replace these components. However, it only seems to indicate dropping the headliner if the motor needs to be replaced. So can I indeed replace the trough guide components using this kit without dropping the headliner? And can I do with the sunroof closed but tilted? I can't seem to get it fully closed and fear it opening all the way back up if a I try.
