This is too strange... Mine got stuck on the exact same day. When I tried to open it, there was a loud grinding sound and it barely moved open and would not close. The only difference is that it did start to rain before I could get it closed. At any rate, I will try out this fix tomorrow.
I just did the write up and everything worked great. ALMOST? Ok the sunroof is doing the go all the way back and then go up 2 in at a time thing. Also it won't completely close! I can't seem to figure out why. I get close to the edge and then theres a loud kind of crack noise and it stops. Kind of like its at it's last resolution.Idk what to do? I had some questions while doing this but it seemed to be working fine until now. I need to know how do you get the motor in the fully open position. Mine just kept spinning never stopped. Also How long does it take for the computer to learn the resolutions and what do you have to do for it to learn it?
REALLY NEED HELP WITH THIS I THINK THERE WILL BE RAIN SOON AND I REALLY WANT TO GET THIS FIXED.
Thanks for wonderful instructions. Took me about 2 hours to fix. If there is a next time, it will take about 20min.
Do not bother taking apart anything at the front of the headliner. Disassemble the back, pull away C pillar covers and bend the back of the headliner down at the B pillar. There is plenty of room to work back there, and no damage done to the headliner - well, at least not any that is visible.

I am so lucky I decided to look online and do some research and found this!!!
The only thing that was wrong with my sunroof was exactly what everyone else's problem was...took the headliner off and two screws came tumblin out. Did everything as explained...took me three hours, locktite'd everythin and works like a charm now.
ONCE I TOOK OFF THE HEADLINER
Only one screw holding it on
I am extremely pissed off that they charged me to diagnose the problem but if they in fact did do a diagnosis they would of found that this was the problem!!! They said my wires were stripped and the motor was burned out because it was caught in the wire harness that came undone. THESE BASTARDS DIDNT EVEN CHECK and CHARGED ME ANYWAY!!!
The only thing they did right in which I wouldnt let them diagnose anything and told them to just do the work was that I asked them to re-flash my ECU to get rid of a pesky p0300...which by the way if anyone's havin a problem with that and has minor mod's there is a TSB from mitsubishi for a fix that is specific to the misfiring issue (but thats for another thread).
Hey what's that misfire issue you were talking about. I think mine is doing the same thing. Kind of boggs down when you hit constant high speed for a little while? and the "service engine soon light" comes on? Let me know if this is the same thing. I need to get this fixed. Thanks.
Can anyone tell me if this applies to an 03 OZ Rally as well... my sunroof has been stuck since October - I had to have 2 guys pull it closed If this fix applies as well, please let me know so I can be sunroof functional for the summer again.
