Why does your window crank slip when you roll down your driver side front window on your 1991 Saturn SL2?

The window crank slips because the regulator gear has most likely stripped. You will need to remove the outer door panel to verify for sure but unless the crank is broken (It would fall off if it was) the regulator is stripped

What's wrong with power sunroof on 95 olds cutlass supreme can hear sunroof motor running but won't open?

I have the same problem.. I am going to be working on finding out the answer. Just gotta figure out how to get the headliner out. Its all pretty much out except the part that's attached at the sunroof Don't have the sunroof fixed yet, but have the headliner out. On mine there is a rubber strip that goes around the headliner/sunroof opening. You just pull that strip off then very carefully peel back the headliner material. My dad is a mechanic and said it sounds like a gear is stripped. He said that there could be a bigger gear and smaller gear. Haven't quite looked into that part yet. But if anyone else is having these problems and would like to keep up with me and my progress on it then e-mail me at I got the motor out and the motor and the little gear is all built in together so you just have to buy a new motor. Dealerships will probably cost about 330 dollars for a new one. I suggest looking around at a junk yard or finding a place that can rebuild them. I found a place that sells rebuilt ones and the guy told me 50 bucks. I get it this Tuesday Nov 18th 08.... so that's all I can help out with. When I had the motor out I hooked the switch back into it and I could hold the gear in place with my fingers.

How do get to the sunroof motor on your 93 3000gt?

There is no "motor" on a stock 93 3000GT (or Stealth) sunroof. The stock sunroof is a manual removable glass roof with a hand-crank regulator that cranks the glass up about 2-3 inches, then you have the option of removing and storing it in the hatch. The only repair is the either replace the crank regulator unit, or 3SX now offers a replacement gear set to replace the plastic gears inside the regulator - if it no longer cranks up, odds are the plastic gears are stripped.

What is causing motorcycle slipping in 1st gear?

Your motorcycles gearbox is a complex, balanced piece of equipment, and works in tune with the motor. It sounds like your first gear might be off kilter or "stripped" or perhaps you need to seriously overhaul something. My advice is to be gentle while in first gear and then shift into second and see if you can feel something in the shift pedal/knob that might give you a clue as to whats wrong.

How do you fix the sunroof motor of a 98 Saturn SC2?

the sunroof motor is simple to replace, but may be time consuming. you first have to remove the headliner. take all the trim holding the headliner off to bring the liner down. once you are inside the headliner, remove the two screws holding the sunroof control assembly. Disconnect the wireing harness from the motor. 3 screws hold the motor in place. Before removing the motor, make sure the sunroof is closed and sealed shut. the motor is timed to the position of the sunroof. Do not turn the motor gear under any circumstance. once the motor is out, inspect the drive cables for any visible wear. Installation of a new motor is just the opposite of removal. the new motor should come pre-timed to the "Closed" position.
