I was under the assumption that the whole rail assembly had to be replaced and that's why the dealer was charging so much.

Yeah it’s just the ends on the worm drive that bust. Looks like a pipe cleaner wrapped in wire.

Take your find and have help. We didn’t take the headliner out when we did ours, and had to be so careful not the bend it.

Let us know how it goes

Sunroofdoctor sells diy kit including very good video on repair instruction . All for under $200. 4 hour driveway repair taking your time. Ask me how I know ��?

You just drop headliner down to rest on the reclined seats. Ford only sells complete track assy, not the plastic pieces that actually break hence $2k.

Well I got home from work and pulled the little accordion cover thing and sure enough I saw it was cracked. Ordered new tracks from the sunroof doctor. Hopefully they will be in before this weekend so I can fix my sunroof.

This is disturbing to me that a 2 y/o truck has the tracks on the sunroof cracking. Good to know that you can buy the tracks easily enough and I watched the install video which doesn't seem so terrible. But still....that's pretty crappy that they are plastic and break that easily.

Yeah, there have been literally 10s of 1000s of these trucks across 10 years that have those cheap plastic guide failures. Ford has done ZERO to remedy this- just charging people $3k to fix their faulty design. There was talk of a class action lawsuit but not much materialized. To think a simple upgrade to a more durable casting would have eliminated the obvious issues years ago but they are content to keep it as a secondary revenue stream instead. Sad....

Agree that it is sad. This is my first ford and I can not believe how many issues are known to ford and yet they do nothing to correct them the following year. Hearing all these stories makes me can’t wait until I mile this truck out in about 4yrs so I can go back to Ram. I really do like the 18 Limited SRW F-350 I have but from the first week, I thought the fit and finish wasn’t very good. Lots of cheap feeling parts.

I poked around the manual yesterday (online version) and what I also find interesting is no mention of moonroof maintenance. I would have thought something would be mentioned to keep the seals good, tracks clean/lubed, etc. On a old Mustang I had, the manual at least mentioned using a silicone spray on the seals to keep them pliable, etc.

When I called Ford I mentioned that I shouldn't have these problems on a 2 yr old truck. She just gave me the same line over and over. It's over the mileage so I'm screwed and they won't do anything. Mileage shouldn't correlate to the sunroof. I'm wondering how hard it would be to work on my CAD skills a little and come up with something that can be machined or cast.

I posted a thread asking about sunroof issues before I ordered my 19 last year, only got good feedback. Had this been up I would have passed. My 19 has one. I figured If it breaks or leaks I’ll just clear wrap the roof and that will seal it over. Then just be a fancy window but not open

19 F450

Iíve owned previous vehicles but I wonít waste the forum space to list them, oh ya, and you donít care

Well I got the tracks in the mail today and took me about an hour to swap them out. Sunroof works awesome. $144 including shipping for the parts, couple beers, and some elbow grease and it saved me $2200.
