2021 Toyota Vehicles with a Moonroof/Panoramic Roof

You can drive a new Camry or Corolla, a Tundra or Tacoma, a RAV4 or 4Runner with a moonroof. You can enjoy summer time trips to the shore in your new Toyota and have the roof open to get the full experience.

A sunroof is a glass or metal panel that`s installed in the roof of a car, truck, or SUV that slides open or pops up to allow light and air into the interior cabin. A moonroof is typically a clear or tinted glass panel that slides between the roof and the headliner and is often tilted open to let in the fresh air.
When a sunroof does not close after opening, the cause is the battery, a bad fuse, a bad motor, or a problem with the track. See what to do below with a motor that is working but struggling. The battery sometimes causes a problem after replacing a dead battery.
Unlike a traditional sunroof, moonroofs are not designed to be removed from the vehicle, although they usually slide or tilt open, reports USNews. Many moonroofs come with an interior sliding panel that matches your car`s interior, says USNews. When it is closed, no light comes into the car.
Technically, a moonroof is a glass panel in the roof of a car that may or may not open. A sunroof, on the other hand, is a glass or metal panel that can be opened, and it usually has a sunshade that can be closed to block bright light from entering the vehicle when the sunroof is closed.
Modern moonroofs are fully automatic and controlled by buttons on the dashboard. Your moonroof can slide all the way open or partially open, tilt up or down, retract just the glass, or fully retract so you get the full experience of the sun and wind.
Corolla XSE

Inside the interior features a power tilt/slide moonroof with a sliding sunshade and SofTex trimmed, heated front seats with an 8-way power adjustable driver`s seat and a 4-way adjustable front passenger seat with a seatback pocket.

The difference between a sunroof and moonroof is the following: Sunroof: Generally made of glass or metal, a sunroof is defined by its ability to slide open and/or pop open to reveal the sky. Moonroof: As its name suggests, a moonroof is a piece of tinted glass that slides between the headliner and the roof.
Opening and closing the panoramic moon roof Open (slide backward) * * To stop operation partway, quickly slide and release the switch again. Close (slide forward) * The panoramic moon roof stops at the tilt-up position. Slide and hold the switch again to fully close the panoramic moon roof.
Similarly to a sunroof, a moonroof is made of glass and is typically tinted to filter sunlight. However, a moonroof cannot be removed from your vehicle like some sunroofs can, but they can still slide or tilt open for fresh air or light.

Sun roof does not close flush with the roof. The sunroof suddenly stopped tilting up to line up with roof.
ANSWER : The glass may be adjustable on the track, there may be a calibration routine in the Factory Service Manual, and there may be lubrication possibilities which could restore range of motion. Those are the simple fixes. If none work, that means that there is a mechanical issue with the track, alignment, gearing, and/or the motor. Those issues require disassembly and inspection per the Factory Service Manual. It is fixable though and so I encourage you to request a moving glass panel diagnostic. If you request that service the responding certified mechanic will get this taken care of for you.

Need help with roof rack on my car
ANSWER : Hello. I’m not sure if there is an aftermarket part/attachment for the anchor points. I would suggest that you contact the dealer to see if they make this type of attachment, or a different type of roof rack that can be installed on your car. If I’m not mistaken you can unscrew the antenna to clear the area where the roof rack is.

It won’t hurt to try to place an anchor at the base of the cross rails. I would suggest that you anchor it down and test it for stability before driving the car.
