    Hi guys,

    perhaps you have encountered this problem.

    Opened the sunroof today in tilt mode. On trying to closing it back, it just not doing it. It tried to close down but moves back up again.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    managed to close it finally. whilst going down i just pressed it very gently upwards from inside the car and it remained closed down :Aghast:

    re-opened in full and closed as normal now!

    but you could be right there Zoran. there is some light rust on the sunroof frame

    Exactly how I discovered my sunroof issue... Off to Honda with you and see what they say, at least it will be another sunroof rusting added to the list of known cases. Honda, are you listening:Whistle: ??

    it has more to be a video rather then a picture. it just tries to closed but remain open

    to be honest don't want to try my luck and re-opening it again in tilt mode. was lucky enough to get it closed.

    To get some photos of it you have to open it in tilt mode and peal back the rubber, and check where the rubber goes on to the metal. Take it to Honda and keep us informed.
