2009 sunroof track replacement
Let's start out by saying my 09' just went out Of warranty and after many calls and emails he best I could get was %10 off the repair which was 1700$ including parts. Now I don't know about the rest I you but that's more than my mortgage, so that was out!!
So I wen online and found a website that sales ford parts at wholesale and got he track for $660 dollars.
The install took my 4 hours at a very slow pace while doing other side projects, if you jammed it out it can be completed in half the time.
You will need a buddy to assist with removal/replacement of the track and headliner so you don't Dany the rest of your interior.
Tools required were
a metric socket set
Small size torx driver
Small Phillips screwdriver
I conside myself a do it yourselfer and not an expert by any means.
Start by removing the headliner, to do so remove both sun visors
The sunglasses holder and both clothes hangers in the back.
The headliner can be pulled down at this point(wiring is still attached)
No need to pull the plastics from the pillars( the headliner is very maluable.
At this point leave the wiring look attached to the headliner just unplug it at the front and rear o the cab.
Now here's the hardest part
You have 2 options easy first
I used painters tape on my center console and dash to protect it while I rotated the headliner an wedged it out he passenger door. Trust me it fits!
The hard way
Unbolt your center console and slide it back towards the rear of the truck,
I still recommend covering it to protect it.
Ok headliner is out.
Now I removed the glass because I don't trust myself.
4 torx screws hold it to the track. Lift the glass out thru the roof.
At this point remove the wire loom from the sunroof motor.
There are 8 or so bolts holding in the track system
I removed them leaving one on each side so that I could call a buddy over to support one side while I unbolted the other side. Than just like the headline we bright it out thru the passenger door.
Now that it's out you have to remove the motor and place it in the new track
You have to remove an upper crossmember as well as the rear support and put them on the new track.
The last thing to do is remove the sunshade from the old track,
There may be an easier way to do I but I just popped it out and popped it back in the new track.
From here it's easy just replace everything in the same order you removed it. I took special care to hooking up the electrical before reinstalling the headliner so I knew it worked!!
This is a very easy project that seems overwhelming at first look.
