thanks.
funny thing I used that link to change the clips. but doesn't show how to reset the track . in the site he said DO NOT MOVE THE TRACK WITH THE MOTOR( thanks to my buddy ) . I kind of got it in place . but its off just a lil .
it wont close all the way .and opens to far back .

Close the sunroof and take the motor out. Realign the track and reinstall the motor. Sometimes the teeth in the motor get out of place.
