2007 AURA XR
2001 SC2
Default Sunroof glass height adjustment.

A few weeks ago I picked up a 2001 limited edition SC2, #78 of 99. The sunroof was rusted, leaking and nonfunctional. Last weekend we found a working and almost brand new looking sunroof module in a 2001 SC2 at the junkyard. Got it for $60. It's now installed in our Saturn but the back of the glass isn't flush with the roof in the fully closed position. Is there a way to adjust this?

Default Re: Sunroof glass height adjustment.

The '93 and '97 sunroofs I played with had minimal adjustments with the mounting screws from the glass frame to the sliders. Worth a shot, I think they were T15 screw heads.

There is a slight amount of adjustment by loosening the torx screws, and then pushing the glass up while re-tightening. I suppose if you were adventurous, you could elongate the mounting holes slightly to get more adjustment.

It's also a good opportunity to completely remove the glass, tape it up, then sand down rust spots and repaint the metal frame with black paint.

Best,

Thanks for all the suggestions. Loosening and adjusting the glass should work.

Won't have to sand or repaint anything. This sunroof module and glass I got from the junkyard look brand new. Not a speck of rust anywhere. The one that was in the car I just bought was too far gone to even repair. I'm beginning to think that the issue with the sunroof not opening was maybe rust chunks getting everywhere.

Default Re: Sunroof glass height adjustment.

I could be entirely mistaken on this, but I was under the impression that the back/rear was supposed to be recessed slightly, and the front was to be higher... The '98 FSM says the contrary, but just thought it might be worth chiming in on this.
