Panoramic Sunroof's Sunshade Off-Track & Vent Closure Malfunction

Went to close my sunshade the other day (something I rarely do) and noticed the shade was creased/folded on the passenger side (see pics). I'm guessing it's off the track.

I am curious if anyone has had a similar problem and attempted to fix themselves. I didn't see any TSBs or similar for this when searching the forum and naturally my warranty expired in Nov 2014.

This time last year I took my Jeep in for a loud squeaking noise that I would only hear on cold mornings from the rear passenger side and the dealership couldn't pinpoint to fix; a noise I am still listening too. After reading some of the other issues fellow owners experienced with their pano-roofs I now wonder if the two are related.

Also, when I close my pano-roof from VENT mode it opens back up, as if there is something in the way. In order to close it I have to fully open my roof and then close. Anyone else have this?

Thanks,

Something being in the way might explain both problems. Maybe there's some leave matter or twigs etc. in there. Take a look with a flashlight/mirror.


Once had an automatic sliding door on a minivan that was sometimes closing slowly and sometimes reversing itself back open. I found a pencil in the channel. Removing it fixed the problem.

I just posted my issue elsewhere. My shade started to buckle or wrinkle this morning upon attempting to close it. I haven't had this issue before so what gives all of a sudden?

I'm not sure either, haven't been able to find anything online. Not a huge concern to me because I leave the shade rolled-up or 'open' but still annoying.

My bigger concern was the vent setting but that seems to have corrected itself because I've had no issues lately.

Re: Panoramic Sunroof's Sunshade Off-Track & Vent Closure Malfunction

Hey man,

My pano sunroof when rolling itself back out to close it last night, for whatever strange reason, made a noise towards the end and seemed as though the sides have pulled off the "track".

Wondering what ever happened to yours, can I get an update?

Thanks!

Nathan

Hey there, wish I could help but less than a month after that post I traded in my Overland for a Wrangler Rubicon.

Sorry....

Hey Quickduk, any updates on yours? Were you able to fix or was the dealer able to do it? Was it under warranty?

Thanks!

Re: Panoramic Sunroof's Sunshade Off-Track & Vent Closure Malfunction

As an FYI to future readers, (since this seems to be a pretty rare problem and I had a hard time tracking down others with it on the internet), I heated the car, tried to push the material back into the track, and then rolled/opened the sun shade fully. After driving this way for a few weeks, I finally worked up the courage to close (unroll) it.

Bingo, it fixed itself. Probably depends on the extent of the damage. I would suggest caution when closing sun shade when the car is cold and in a at/sub zero C environment in future.
