ive already done searches on this topic..and it was no help.
My sunroof is working fine, it's just that I noticed that when I go to close it...the window doesn't close tight, the window just sits a little lower than what it used to. So now there is little leaks. And I can push the window up with my hand...
How do I fix this? And if i get desperate and go to dealership, how much will it cost?

Re: help me with my roof... (98silverGTIVR6)

not sure if mine leaks, but if i use moonroof then close it, i get a wind whistle.
if, from there, i open it (backwards) then close it, it seals correctly.
seems it doesnt seat correctly coming down from moon-roof mode.
that's my $0.00 fix.

Re: help me with my roof... (spoonie)

ther are 4 torx screws (2 per side), that allow you to adjust the glass up and down in the tracks. Just have somebody help you align the glass with the roof and then tighten the screws. it is not easy, I had several broken parts on my wifes 95 glx and removed the sunroof completely and replaced the parts,so i had to realign the glass.
