  1. Update, well not much of one. No luck. There is one huge question that I cannot find the answer to How much of a difference is there between the OEM moonroof and the Webasto unit. What I am getting at is if I can get headliner that is designed for a OEM moonroof would it work in my case
  2. Hello. I would start with checking all of the fuses. If you have a owners manual the fuses should be labeled. How long have you owned this car? when you say sender what are you referring to? Check the link arm(s) located at the ride height sensor(s). See if any of them are disconnected. It is possible that the compressor seized up. That is a pretty common failure if the vent hoses have rotted off.
  3. it clicks into place in the hole but not sure where it is supposed to be positioned
  4. A few whole pictures
  5. interesting. Glad you figured it out. Best of luck with your seville
  6. I would be checking the brown wire that goes inside the trunk. It likely splices in with the left side. You will also find out if you have the factory trailer harness If you do that will be spliced in also. I am thinking the wire is bad somewhere between the splice and the right side taillight. Likely obvious when you find it. The wiring runs under the plastic trim where the pull down latch is
  7. I am not sure. I think it goes all the way over to the passenger side and shares with the HVAC. I forget what is vacuum controlled in the HVAC on mine. Anything on the 98 seville interior wise I dont know what is the same.
  8. Update. I finished removing the headliner and found worse news. The original headliner is still attached to what is left of the backer. When the moonroof was installed it was put on right over the existing headliner material. I have to try to figure out a way to put a new material on. If I could find a Seville with a factory moonroof I wonder just how different the oem one is from the dealer add on one. Judging by how hacked up the sunglass holder was when just swapping out the console for the right one makes me wonder. more pics
  9. Hi all. I guess this is the reason why my moonroof is not working properly. 1997 Cadillac Seville, Webasto Dealer add on unit No idea exactly how it is attached and where it is supposed to be positioned. Looks to be a timing gear that tells the moonroof where to stop Update. Hers is the picture of where gear goes and where it was, but I dont know what position it goes on. I see it just clips on. No idea why it came off though.
  10. So today I decided to finally pull down the headliner. I am disgusted to say the least. Hard to believe a dealer install moonroof could be so horrible. The original backer for the headliner is badly botched. It looks like the moonroof assembly is a large black unit that mounts from inside the roof. The headliner material is secured to it. It seems to have a black foam sheet that is glued to it and the material is supposed to be glued to that. I have never seen anything like it. It looks like I cannot pull the headliner out as it is now not one whole assembly. I have no idea what to do here. Maybe someone here has dealt with this before. Basically anywhere that the material was attached to the black part is sagging. The parts still attached to the original backer are still perfectly attached. I must be the unit is too big to fit the original headliner so they had to cut the backer out as big as the unit (which is big) then they just glued the headliner to the unit. So rather than the headliner being contoured like normal it is supposed to be flat against the bottom of the unit. The headliner material is like new that is hanging down. Still has its foam intact and all This kills me because the car is near mint other than the headliner issue. Did I mention I dont like moonroofs
  11. Hmm interesting. Below is a picture of the 96- (left) 97 (right) I found this out because the plunger went bad on my 96 Deville and I bought the one on the right to replace it. It didnt work because they were pretty different. I will have to look behind the dash to see what my Seville has. Also I bought a donor column out of a 98 concours last year and saw nothing on it regarding vacuum. It was console shift. When you say 98, are you referring to Deville or Seville? I ask this because the 98 Seville was drastically different than the eldo and Deville. I dont even know what that uses thanks for posting
  12. I am talking about the plunger at the pedal itself. I am thinking if that was bad it would not intermittently work. Other than that and the vacuum line I honestly know nothing about how the system works. Today every time I tried it it worked fine. grr Can someone tell me where the relay, and or solenoid are located. Thanks
  13. Hi all. I probably posted something for this before but my 97 Deville parking brake only releases when it wants to. When it works it works great. When it doesn't work it doesn't work at all. I am thinking it is not the servo because it works perfectly fine when it does work. I am so confused. Today I set the brake on a hill, shut the car off. When I went to take off I put the car in gear and it did not even attempt to release, Lucky for me I am already familiar with the small release handle that exists behind the dash. Where would I even start on this one? If I want it to act up it wont. Guess I am lucky that the brake works
  14. it comes on so fast that it is not even noticeable
