    Howdy!
    My 2015 Renegade Latitude is having a MySky roof issue. I've had it shut for most of the winter. Just tried opening/closing it a few times. It opens okay, but shutting it, it would run VERY slow and labored and sometimes, stopped and re-opened (backed up). I could shut it by holding the button with one hand and pulling the roof panel by hand.
    Took it to my dealer, they lubed the tracks. However, it actually shuts a bit faster, but "stutters" (or chatters) forward and shut.
    But here's the rub, they want to replace the motor (for over $900). I don't think it's a motor issue, as I'd think it would be slow to operate in both directions.
    Thinking more along the lines of something is either misaligned or still not lubed correctly.

    Any thoughts? (I did search previous posts and I'm not sure if it could be a trim or seal interference issue.)

    Thanks!

    Hi Duck, I do apologize for the trouble you are experiencing with your MySky. We understand you are reaching out to fellow forum members, however if you are not able to remedy this concern with the advice provided here, I kindly recommend connecting with your local Jeep dealer again. We'd be more than happy to provide you with an additional layer of assistance for that process.

    It sounds like it needs more lube to me.

    no, really. lol

    Take off the MySky panel and add more lubrication to the rails. A silicone or Teflon spray. Or even a very thin light grease.
    By removing the MySky panel, you can see where to place the lube in the rails.

    Something that won't evaporate in a couple months or attract too much dust and dirt.
