Customer Question
I have a 2008...

I have a 2008 4 runner that the sun roof got stuck open, I looked up how to close it and it eventually closed. I would like to be able to repair/ correct this problem so it does not happen again

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '08 Toyota?

Limited

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

Yes, and have not done anything other pushed the switch and and pulled window and it closed

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

No, I think this is a common problem- dealer wants to replace the whole thing as always- is there some way to adjust or repair this thanks
