Sunroof stuck closed - Can I get to it?

Hey all. My wifes 2008 Grand Cherokee Limited's sunroof is jamed shut. The other week she was opening it and ther a loud pop and The Sunroof wont open at all. If you hit the button it tries to open but it "binds" pretty bad -- almst to the point its gonna break the glass. ANy way to get to the tracks in there? (short of taking it to the dealer) It's out of warranty, of course.

Any ideas? We are 100% a JEEP family. I have on '05 GC HEMI AWD and it's one awesome machine, she has the '08 4.7 2wd - We also have a restored 76 CJ5 w/ the 305 -- My point is we love our jeeps, always have & always will. It's in our blood. Before she got her GC she had and '01 Cherokee limited with over 250K miles and it still ran great.

She really wants her sunroof to work and I dont know what to do. any advice?

It's out of warranty? Why so soon? What is the warranty?

Re: Sunroof stuck closed - Can I get to it?

What? ohh Youre right...I know I'm an idiot. It's an '08- Dude all day I was thinking '11 - I dont know. Maybe it's the lack of sleep. No it not that I'm just an idiot. I was gonna sell my '05 and get a '11 a while back then decided against it. Shucks man it's paid for clean as it was the day it rolled off the show room floor. Enough about that...Forget it it's a 2008 - Seriously - I need to fix it.

So, either way the sunroof is stuck closed and I need to get in there and check it out.
It sucks man. Anbody know how to get in there?

How about Any way to move this to the WK forum?

i guess he did state 2011, but I saw the 4.7 and the fact it's out of warranty pretty much concluded my thoughts.

Re: Sunroof stuck closed - Can I get to it?

Does anyone know if it's easy to get to a locked up sunroof? If I drop the headliner does it give me a full picture of the tracks?

Re: Sunroof stuck closed - Can I get to it?

I've never dropped the headliner in a WK so i can't speak from experience, in other vehicles i've done putting in Overhead Video systems at work you can typically see 99% of the sunroof stuff when you drop the headliner. Give it a shot, the WK shoudln't be too bad to drop the headliners in. Just take your time, dont put un-needed pressure or fold/bend it too much or you will crease it.
