Default Re: Review: Rebuilt sunroof module & how-to

Just curious, is the glass a new part (my main concern is rust-free) and come with a new seal attached? If so, $10 extra is a bargain. Nonetheless I'm going to keep this offer in mind.

Even if the glass isn't new, $200 for a rebuilt, improved complete sunroof module is still a steal IMO.

Thumbs Up Re: Review: Rebuilt sunroof module & how-to

Just a couple of pointers as you probably already know...Take your time and dont get in a big hurry, also clean out the drain tubes while you got it apart..Some use air some run weed eater string down the tubes,...Have a extra hand if possible when lowering the headliner if possible, not heavy just kinda bulky...Have some fun with the task its a great learning experience, and enjoy the sunroof when you have it all back together

I have a buddy that is good with fixing things that will be there to lend me a hand. With Shawn's and Richpins videos I feel confident we can get it done.
By the way I have a 99 sc2 that I purchased 3 weeks ago and everything else works great. Previous owner had taken very good care of it. By the way I have already changed the oil and will keep a good eye on it.

Completed the swap and all is well. Now if I can just find the time to re-do the headliner.

A little tip from my installation. Tighten the nuts (not uber tight, just enough until about the thread starts peeking through the nut) on the sides of the module in order to get the glass bolts started. Then loosen them up and follow Jeff's instructions.

From what I can see the previous owner just removed the motor, and stuffed the cables up into the ceiling, the squirted silicone on the outside surface of the glass panel seal, everything else appears to be intact.
To make a long story short, I don't think I will need a new glass panel, just the module. Discounting $13 from the core refund for the cost of a new motor seems like a bargain to me.
You were saying that you once shipped a rebuilt unit to Canada...Do you recall what the shipping cost was? I know all of the major shipping companies all grin ear to ear when the get a package coming here....After all, I am only a 2.5 hour drive to Buffalo, NY and everyone knows that the Big 3 shippers never send packages there...
The shipping to Canada was $80 plus. So we worked out a deal on waiving the core charge with no return shipping. The cores aren't worth getting back at the kind of shipping cost.

Glass and seal are not new. Used. I have cherry picked the glasses I have though. I've never even look at the prices on seals or glasses. In most cases if someone needs a glass a good used one is better than what they currently have. That's why so cheap...

Yours should be there before the weekend. I'll include my phone number with your tracking number.
If you run in to issues feel free to call me. From what I've seen these guys are awesome at responding to requests for help but sometimes a phone call is quicker.
I'll do my best not to act like a "business" with the people who buy modules and just take your money and disappear. If you need some advice during installation or find you need more spare parts like drain clamps, dome lights, switches, extra screws or nuts, just let me know. I've collected plenty of these to mail out if they're needed. I try to include the things that I know break during installation but you never know....

Sorry for the delay in reply to some emails and this thread. Took a motorcycle trip last week. Next time I'll give a heads up so nobody thinks I'm ignoring emails.
Thanks again to Shawn for his review and video. Looks to be working out for everyone.

Sorry everybody. I have to push the pause button on this thing. I didn't anticipate selling out of parts so fast. I have some more pressing issues to tend to (finishing the engine for my daughters SC!). I hope to be able to make more parts before the end of the month. If I can't, it will be December before I make more. If that is the case, I will only be selling the guides and not rebuilt modules. They will still be a great alternative $ wise to the other source.
Hang in there and do not hesitate to email your request for parts or a module so I have an idea how many parts to make and who will get them first.
Thank you all for outstanding response to this and to Shawn again for his review.

1993 SL1
Default Re: Review: Rebuilt sunroof module & how-to

My 93 SL1 has an interesting sunroof situation. When I first bought it last summer, I figured the motor was just dead, because pressing the buttons did nothing, so I forgot about it and figured I'd just deal with a closed sunroof. However, one day during the following winter, (when it was particularly cold) I accidentally hit the sunroof button instead of the dome light one I intended to hit and the sunroof began to open. I was able to open it and close it completely and noticed that the tracks were very rusty, but aside from that it worked fine. After that day, however, I was never able to get it to open again.

What could be causing it to malfunction? I'm guessing that the cold weather was what made it open, but ultimately I haven't been able to test that (and I don't see a reason why it would).

Thanks,
David

Thanks to everyone interested and those that have purchased. I am moving overseas to help set up a new machine shop/manufacturing facility.
I will not be shipping any rebuilt modules for a while but in a few months I should be able to make a big supply of aluminum guides much cheaper than before.
Will update in a couple of months.

This is an old thread from 7 months ago, it is probably a good idea to PM the member directly and see if he is still overseas or has returned and is ready to ship again.

If you find out let us know.
