Is200 Sunroof Problem


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, merry xmas! I have a 2000 is200 se and my sunroof doesn't seem to want to work. Fuse is fine and i hear a click when pressing the slide back button (not tilt but im not sure if this is normal, i doubt it) and nothing happens? Any ideas what this could be? Seals are fine. I suspect the motor has gone but i can't find anything on the net of how to replace it?! It would be great if someone could help me out. Thanks in advance

@ CHUNKY CHIP Well ive only had the car for a few weeks and its been like this since i bought it. I get no clicking at all when pressing tilt up and down, also no click with slide forward just back. Am i right in thinking there is only one fuse for the sunroof or might i be missing something?

Thanx for reply

As you had it a short time has it ever worked i take it has not?

As for fuse relay etc its clicking gives the sign of power up on a basic level

had in the past through lack of use not only on lexus but toyota range also see this often over past 20year generally with cartridge roof system eg all in a box the motor gear rusts and jams in between cables easy way to see remove motor from the mounting points within the roof.

Gives it away when gear is rusted and teeth are smooth.

@CHUNKY CHIP It worked very slightly when i test drove the car. I pressed one button, it wasn't fully closed, so it moved about 1/4 inch to closed position. I later checked the fuse and that had blown so i replaced it and thats basically where im at now lol. Where can i find the motor mounting bolts? Do you have to take the headliner off?
