Sunroof problems

Well I got a problem with the sunroof of my F150 Lariat. When I try to close from vent position it don't retracts all the way until I push the button again to slide it back, it get stuck with the roof. And when it is in close position, water starts to leak in, only in the corners where the crystal retracts.

I hope someone can help me with.

And drawing. Maybe you can help me about a problem with wiring. The previous owner had a lot of sound equipment, but when he sell me the truck he disconnect everything but left the wiring. In the ford dealership told me that has a problem with the air bags. What do you recommend me to do?

Thanks

It sounds to me like you bought a truck that had been wrecked before. Have you run a carfax on it?

sunroof problem

Sometimes a power sunroof will jump out of alinement. You have to remove the motor from the sunroof module and run it open and close two or three times and then put it back into the sunroof module. Make sure the sunroof is in the closed position first, and make sure you end the cycle of the motor on the closed position.

The only thing is...
CF may not be as wide-spread down in Mexico.

Also, not every agency/shop reports to CF. If the PO had a friend of the family do any body repairs or add-ons it would be up to "them" to report it.


nmr.Inc,
Do you know if that sun/moon Roof is factory or does it seem like the previous owner (PO) had it added?

Cool!, thanks for response, I'll try it. But abusing your kindness, do you have any manual to disassemble the sunroof, I don't want to break nothing jejeje.

Thanks for response, I'll try it, in fact I did it. But like FTE trigger said, it only appear one track, so I think it was reported from Ford USA. But I will get it. Thanks to FTE trigger to.
