My moon/sunroof on my 2012 Ford F-350 is stuck in the open…

Customer Question
My moon/sunroof on my...

My moon/sunroof on my 2012 Ford F-350 is stuck in the open position. I hear the motor run, but it will not close. Is there a manual way to close it?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

28,500 miles and it is an automatic

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I will try to fix it myself if there is a way to do it. It seems to me there should be a place to put a socket/hex wrench to crank it closed. I have not tried yet. Any suggestions?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Can't think of any now. Will listen and then determine if I can fix it,

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
