Help with trouble shooting sunroof/moonroof

503 Views 8 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  ProjectSHO89
Trying to Fix my Sun roof on my 2001 escape. I thought the motor was bad but it's working fine with no wear on the gear. There appears to be sone chewed up plastic in the cable. The motor turns but the window is not moving with it and moves freely. I'm have removed the frame but I'm not positive what I need to fix or replace. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Make sure the attachments for the drive cable to the glass aren't broken. Common failure.
As far as the parts I mentioned, only place I ever found was online. They sold upgraded metal parts that were guaranteed to never break. I bought and eventually installed them in my now gone '07 Mariner. They were expensive, somewhere around $125-150, IIRC.

Ford only sold the complete moonroof module.
