The sunroof on my 1982 Celica Supra is off its tracks and makes a real bad motor noise. Just wondering if anyone knows how to put it back on it’s tracks? I heard I have to take the headliner off to even get to the roof.

Try some searches, this has been covered many times in the past here. Its likely the plastic brackets the sunroof pivots on, they are built into the rail tracks and tend to break if the sunroof gets impacted or forced. There has been some attempts to get replacements made, not sure what state those are at. There is definitly a thread about that (SupraZ posted it).

Mine were broken as I was told its a common problem as the plastic gets brittle and falls apart, so I made a set in high temp SLA so they can withstand the car heat and have a smoother finish since these are a part that needs to slide on the rail, your not broken should look like these,

So do you have a mold for those? Can you do a run for everyone? How did you handle removing and re-attaching the metal end on the cable?

If they are SLA they are just 3D printed. The ones I had I made a ferrule and crimped it on the end of the cable.

You've got to pull all those 10mm bolts out and lift the sunroof out from the top. The plastic parts that breaks rides inside that aluminum rail you can sort of see from the side. You'll have to look, but there shouldn't be any broken plastic on either side.

I see, so we are talking about the golden bolts? Also I heard that I have to place the rod back onto that black track as it seems to be under the track. Thank you!
