Cool, thatís what I was looking for.

The shade would open and close even when my tracks were messed up and front motor unplugged. Just for some reason (after my wife touched it) the shade would not move forward.

I hardly use the roof. The one time I did it got stuck open. I was able to manually close it years ago and havenít touched it since. Canít find any good write ups on how to rebuild the tracks. I would hate to have spent the money; get it all taken apart, and not be able to get it put back together. From what I can see lots of moving parts and have to be fitted perfect for it to function correctly.
