2004 Toyota Highlander Sunroof - questions
Big time issues with the sunroof on my 2004 highlander - dealer says the plastic cables that pull the sunroof closed - one snapped and got intertwined with the other causing it to fail. They were able to get it closed but they are telling me its a min $3500 to repair? Does this sound legit? What are the other options out there? Thanks!
hows that for Toyota quality? Its going to be expensive to fix, but $3500 seems very high.
Michael, I have the same problem and I haven't resolved it yet, but I have done a little research. There is a DIY video on youtube which shows most of the mechanisms in sunroofs are not cables, but tracks which tend to get blocked with debris over time and fowl up the operation of the roof. Another video on a Subaru basically had the same problem. The hardest part of fixing the problem will probably be getting to the roofs mechanisms after it is stuck in place. I either case it is not worth $3,500. You could buy a cheap car for that price. Man some guys really want to take you to the cleaners and have no shame about it. Hope this is helpful.
Michael...I have the problem as well, 2004 Highlander. What did you end up doing?
