Hello, I have a 99 Legacy GT, and last night I opened the sunroof, and found it has no problem going backwards, however it will not go forward to close. The motor runs, but nothing happens.:confused: Any ideas, and if I have to remove the cassesett how would i go about doing that. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Chris

Can you tug it gently and give it an assist to close until someone more knowlegeable chime in?

Check the owner's manual. I think there is an allen key wrench that can be used to close the moonroof. It may not be effective in your case as it may still rely on the same "scissor" mechanism to actuate the closing and if this is the case:banghead:... as you already mentioned.

On the earlier Legacys, there is a small hole in the headliner (covered with a matching plug, of course) near the front edge of the sunroof. Remove this and you will find a place to insert an allens wrench (earlier models kept a wrentch in their center console). This can be used to manually open and close the sunroof.

Here is the info from the owners manual , but if that doesn't work you may have broken one of the calbes that drive the sun roof or the sun shade has jammed the sun roof

Hope this helps
