Sunroof Repair Service
Opening and closing your vehicle’s sunroof or moonroof may seem like a straightforward function, but a complex system of parts and components must perform correctly for the rooftop glass or panel to open. If any of these components fail or the system that powers them malfunctions, you are left to deal with a sunroof that’s stuck open or a moonroof that leaks, which can mean a very uncomfortable ride for you and your passengers.
Many drivers ask the same age-old question: What is the difference between a sunroof and a moonroof? Traditionally, a sunroof is an opaque panel that can be removed or pops up to allow light and air to circulate in the cabin. A moonroof is a glass panel that slides open or tilts up to let in light and air. These days, the terms are interchangeable on most vehicles.
SIGNS YOU NEED SUNROOF REPAIR
Naming conventions aside, if you have a button-operated panel on the roof of your vehicle that slides open and closed, it uses an intricate system of parts. This includes a regulator assembly and a motor. These parts may show signs of problems before they stop working completely. You’ll know there are issues if:
- Shuddering occurs when opening or closing slowly
- It is stuck open or closed
- Water leaks inside your vehicle
- Whining or grinding noise is heard when opening and closing
- No response is given when engaging the open/close button
- “Auto” open/close function stops working

Sunroof & Moonroof Repair at NAPA Auto Care
The ASE-certified technicians at NAPA Auto Care provide precise repairs thanks to specialized training in the complex technology that powers your sunroof or moonroof. Your technician will check that all fuses are functioning before carefully removing the roof panels from the interior of your vehicle to inspect the internal components of the sunroof or moonroof. Our technicians will check the electrical systems (motor, wiring and switches) and mechanical systems (regulator arms, brackets and channel guides) to determine the cause of the problem.
If your sunroof or moonroof is leaking, the technician will clear any clogs in the drainage, as well as replace the seals if they are cracked or worn. The tech will replace the regulator if it failed plus re-mount the glass or panel to the track. In the case that the switch is the issue, the tech will replace it while also inspecting and repairing any of the other connectors. If the motor is malfunctioning, the technician will disconnect it from the regulator assembly and replace it with a new motor. After all repairs, sunroof and moonroof systems are tested for full functionality before you hit the road.
