UZJ100 - Sun Roof Cables
Last Saturday I opend the sun roof and it was stuck. The 100 series sun roofs do not have a manual close mechanism. I removed the sun roof and slider assembly - after removing the headliner and most every piece of interior trim. The issue was the plastic lining on the cables had deterioriated and were binding the cables. I order new cables and will be installing them this weekend.
I didn't see in the FSM (perhaps I missed it) if the cables need grease lubrication. Is grease needed and if so which grease? I'd like to put them in back correctly so they last at least another 14 years before I have to get back in there.
