I have a 2005 Nissan...
I have a 2005 Nissan Altima SL. The sunroof is stuck in the tilted open position about an inch. The switch opens it, but when I close it, nothing happens. The motor doesn’t work. Is there a way I can manually close it? I don’t need to use it anymore.

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
