HTH, Tom. I too have had this problem, but I managed to get the sunroof closed. More luck than anything else, I think. Anyway, I took a good look today and found that the motor had come adrift from the cables. It's held by three bolts and I only had two, which were both very loose! I tightened up the two I had and looked around for a third, but couldn't find anything. I've use cable ties in the meantime and I'm off to find a suitable bolt ... and a strong cable connector, since my wife has just nearly blown herself up with the lawn mower :) Thanks for the advice Tom, Paul 1989 900 Turbo S
