We have a 2000 Lexus RX 300

#1

The moonroof is stuck in the tilt position and won’t close. Is there anything we can do short of having the headliner removed for diagnostics?


#2

Check the fuse.


#3

Peek in your owners manual and pray to your favorite diety that your moonroof has a manual backup. My old 1995 Civic you could use a screw driver or cordless power drill with screw bit to close it manually if motor failed.


#4

If there is a manual method of closing the moonroof on this model, there should be a plastic plug covering the hole where the appropriate tool is inserted. On some cars, a very large Hex Key is supplied in the tool kit, and this is what is used to close the roof. Check both the Owner’s Manual and the tool kit.
