car is a 92 si.
when i got the car the moonroof didnt work to well to begin with, it would only go about half-way back.
but now recently it stopped working at all.
i hear the motor cranking but the roof wont slide back or pop up, it doesnt move at all.
i have no idea how to fix this.
ive taken a look at it and i kinda saw the mechanics of it, saw a spring on each side but other than that im clueless.
anyone have any experience with moonroofs and how to fix them or even how to get to the motor and other mechanical parts?
ide rather fix it on my own if i can.
