Mine makes a popping noise about 5 times when the sunroof gets to fully open and fully closed
Do you think this will fix it?

That sounds like a limit switch not being adjusted correctly. But that's a guess, and your problem sounds like something difficult to troubleshoot over the internet (unless someone else has experienced this problem). I would take it to your mechanic.

did you ever find a fix for this? i am having this issue with my moonroof, wont open all the way, when opened to its max travel, the glass is cocked/askew slightly, and gives about 5 clicks like you stated, same clicks when closing, and tilting occasionally

Not yet so far I have washed and rained on and no leaks
So I don't use it

I asked the tint guy he told me to research on Toyota moonroof in general for this problem

I found nothing yet

But he said If you tilt the sunroof you should be able to see what is broken or misaligned comparing side by side

Pleas let me know if you have any leads

oh i can clearly see from side to side there are differences when opened. i do not have a problem with water leaking so i still use mine all the time. but i do notice that the glass is affected by wind speed in the form of vibrating from the turbulence. i had a weather tech visor but that only made things worse so i removed it. im too afraid of pulling the sunroof apart and not being able to get it working again. i guess its something i am going to have to wait until this summer to address.

My roof made the exact same clicking sound. I could hear the motor really struggling. It took two complete rebuilds from the dealer to finally determine there was a frame bracket that was broken in the back of the unit behind the roof panel.

Not an easy fix in my case and quite costly.
