Default Yet another Moon Roof Question

I'm getting a ticking sound from my Moon Roof, So I removed the head liner and found the "tick". It a black box. I attached the photo, The motor doesn't spin. Is this some kind of relay for the motor?

Your photos are too close up for proper reference. I believe that IS the motor. What year is your PT? This look like a 2001/2002 setup.


PS: Yes, that is the sunroof motor. Here's a photo the 2001 sunroof motor that I have take from the top side of the mechanism. Looks like the same plugs. If this is the case, the easier fix is to grab an complete sunroof mechanism at the salvage yard and replace it. They are very plentiful. And there's only approx eight 10 mm nuts holding it. So replacement is fast once the liner is down.

I don't ever use the sunroof on mine. I wish I didn't even have it.

It's a 2001, I went to LKQ and pulled the controller and motor for a 2003 ($26.00), It now works (Kind of) it will open about half way and stop, and almost shut all the way. I think I open a can of worm on this one.
