The replacement part is about $700. Its the entire carrier system that the sunroof slides on. Labor to r/r the headliner will easily be 6 hours if not more.
It can be done with simple tools in your garage and a LOT of patience. A helper doesn't hurt. Take pics before & after, bag/tag parts and don't get too frustrated.
The good part of this is that in the r/r process, you can also reclaim the extra 2-3 inches of sunroof opening that was removed after the 99 model year. Your sunroof will open to full opening of the roof instead of stopping short and limiting the opening size.
There's a caveat to the larger opening, however, (that I can provide info on if requested) but I think it's no big deal.
Word to the rest of you to lube up the sunroof slide tracks as your days of open roof cruising may be numbered and don't even think of using a boneyard unit to save $. That unit has the same amount of wear yours does.
