Hi Pearl,
My 2008 Camry s sunroof won't slide out. There are sounds but it seems to be stuck
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I want a low cost solution if possible. If not I would like to know how much it would cost to fix it.

Hello and welcome to just answer and allowing me to assist you. You stated you hear a noise but the sun roof don't move? is it stuck closed or open? you have two ways to do this but not knowing your skill levels I don't know which one you would prefer. The first one includes dropping the sun roof motor and seeing if it spins. the other is taking the sunroof track out to see if it is jammed or has broken cables. either way the parts can be quite expensive unless you can get good used ones at a local wreckers. new the motor can run up to $300 and the cable assemblies run up to $4oo so what is your decision and how can I assist you further the ball is in your court.
