Hey guys, i just bought my first jeep(wj) and have only owned it for a few days. I went to wash it yesterday and something told me to check the sunroof. Luckly i looked it wasnt sealed all the way in the back. When i go to close it it goes to the factory position but still leaves a slight space, so i have to bump the switch in the vent position to get it to seal. ( i did spray it before i checked and it leaked in just enough to get the sun shade wet) I read that you can adjust it, so if anyone has any pointers and directions on how to do it that would be cool! Thanks.:D

Try this method It seemed to work for my old Jeep Cherokee it was a 99 so it should be the same way. Hope that helps!

1. Move the sunshade rearward to the open position.
2. Separate the mechanism covers (2) from the tabs (1) on the glass panel.
3. Verify the sunroof glass panel is in the fully closed position.
4. Loosen the forward attaching screws (3) on each side enough to permit the front of the glass to adjust up or down.
5. Adjust the front surface of the sunroof glass panel 0.00 mm to 2 mm (0.00 in. to 0.08 in.) below the top surface of the roof.
6. Tighten the front glass panel attaching screws to 3.5 N·m (30 in. lbs.).
7. Loosen the rear screws (3) on each side enough to make the rear adjustment.
8. Adjust the rear surface of the sunroof glass panel 0.00 mm to 2 mm (0.03 in. to 0.08 in.) above the top surface of the roof.
9. Tighten the rear glass panel attaching screws to 3.5 N·m (30 in. lbs.).
10. Check for proper fit. If not OK, repeat glass panel adjustment.
11. Position the mechanism covers (2) over the glass tabs (1) between the locating features and seat fully.
12. Verify sunroof operation and alignment.
