A sunroof motor operates a series of gears to facilitate the operation of a moon roof to open and close smoothly as required. They are specifically designed and configured to meet application requirements. They operate the same as a power window motor to open and close the roof automatically. Prior to the 1990's sunroofs were opened and closed manually utilizing a hand crank and these devices were very cumbersome to operate.
