2008 MKX Vista Roof will open but not close
Pressing the open button will open the Vista Roof panoramic sunroof to all
preset positions, but it will not close. You can see the guides on each side
push the roof back but then they don't pull the roof back with them to close
it. Took it to dealer and they wanted $2000 to repair. This is a simple
aluminum track and 12 volt electric motor. Should not cost that much.
Service rep was able to push it mostly closed while my wife pressed the
close button. Any tips on how to fix this or at the very least just get it to
You found your own problem when you said aluminium track, these things wear badly and are expensive to fix cause the whole ceiling panel has to be removed and the entire unit replaced as they don't service individual pieces except the glass, a customer came in ti my shop with a stuck roof window and it took almost an hour to get it closed so it would not leak. once we got it closed he had us disconnect it so he wouldn't accidentally open it. It took 3 guys and 2 screwdrivers to carefully and finally get it closed. Good Luck
Okay so with my wife pushing the close button and and a buddy and myself pushing it closed we got it completely closed! Now to see if we can take out the fuse so it doesn't open again.
I think there is something else on that circuit besides the sunroof, it might be advisable to just disconnect the switch.
dude seriously put some friggn oil on it.. its called maintenance. anyone figure out how to get the global close function to work on an 07 mkx?
