After it rains if I attempt to open the sunroof (towards the rear not upward) it won''t go unless I push down from ontop. Any solutions?

Sounds like the sunroof is not seating in its final closed posistion so the car thinks the sunroof is still open. What if you try to tilt it first? Could there be something preventing it from closing 100%? Is it only after any amount of rain falls?

it closes fine, this only happens after a rain not when its dry out. but after the rain it will open up and close in the correct position

Well I guess if it is only rain caused, then it must be something electrical getting wet. What that could be I don''t know. Take a look for broken molding or a moonroof seal. Good luck.

it attempts to go down but it seems like when you have a wooden door and its really humid outside, the door sticks because it expanded. Same here I think as I hear it trying to go down. I tried wd-40 but still problems

Just remember, WD40 is not a lubricant. It''s a rust penetrator and it might eat rubber.
