My sunroof has a probelm on my 04' Impala ss. I push the switch and it make a loud grinding/clicking noise like it wants to open but won't. Anyone have a clue to what that could be?

well, if its making noise, the motor seems to be turning. Im guessing its either off the tracks or the cables or gears are messed up (not sure if it uses cables or gears or both)

You probably need to drop the headliner to access it and see whats going on

YEAH DEFINTELY DROP THE HEADLINER. I was talking to some guy and he said that how they made the impala sun roof since they stick out so far back when you open it, im guessing the air hitting the sunroof when it is popped up messes up the wires and the motor. But that was just a wild guess.

Ive heard of track issues in the past, My 04SS had closing issues, it was jamming. All it took for me was some cleaning and re-greasing the rails
