Really starting to dig into restoration work on my moonroof GN.

Try some dry lube in the tracks...helped mine quite a bit after a good cleaning

Since I had to change one cable I lubed the actual cables with wheel bearing grease. It filled in nicely. I'll have to get some dry lube for the runners. Glad I tested it on the bench cause I would be second guessing myself at this point as to why it does close all the way. I will figure it out. Or leave it shut for months LOL. Just as long as I don't brake the damn thing again.

After sitting closed overnight it shuts much better. Changed to my spare motor and it's no better. It's the seal. I did the dollar bill test and it looks pretty good so if it leaks should not be much. I will loosen the module leave it shut and not touch it until I get the window turbo.

Thats great, where did you order a new cable from
There are no new cables. I found 2 sets from forum members and bought them both. All the usual parts guys/vendors did not have any. I could buy an entire moonroof assy but since mine was all restored and pretty I dug for a cable.

Turbo V6 231

Looks great, I may have to make the trek there as well myself, it's hard to find someone that will do a good job on these cars, I have a factory sunroof model I'm getting ready to rebuild, going to do a gnx replica, with all the options as well, do you have contact info for mike you can pm me?
Thx
