Chrysler PT Cruiser Touring: . My brother's PT cruiser, 2001,

Customer Question
Hi. My brother's PT cruiser...
Hi. My brother's PT cruiser, 2001, sunroof is jammed open in the "vent" position. I think the motor is fine...I can hear it operating. But there are two rods that have detached.
When I compare it with a (2005)
PT Cruiser, I see those rods are attached with a hex nut and assembliy. I don't see those nuts or assemblies on his at all.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
If you hear the motor running but the glass doesn't move at all and you're seeing something that looks like loose rods then you may have broken guides and what you're seeing loose are the cables. The cables go from the motor to the guides to move them fore and aft.
Are you able to upload a picture of what you're seeing?

Is the glass removed?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
No. glass is there. the sunroof is stuck in vent, so it's open in back but closed in front.
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
Go ahead and remove the glass panel if it's something you're wanting to diagnose and repair yourself. You shodul see that the rods were mounted to the guides. The guides may be broken and have allowed the rods to come out.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
