Holden Captiva CG Owner's Manual
The vehicle has an active head restraint system in the front outboard seating positions. The active head restraints automatically tilt forward to reduce the risk of neck injury if the vehicle is hit from behind.
If the vehicle has a manual driver seat height adjuster, it is located on the outboard side of the seat near the front of the seat cushion. To raise the seat, move the lever upward repeatedly until the seat is at the desired height. To lower the seat, move the lever downward repeatedly until the seat is at the desired height.
Sunroof Drain Inspection and Cleaning
A drain trough encircles the sunroof window panel and water is drained off by the drain hoses located at each corner of the housing. A drain channel spans across the sunroof module at the rear of the window panel and directs water into the trough.
- The front drain hoses are routed down the windshield pillars and out the center of the pillar between the door hinges. The front hoses are installed in a rubber grommet and retained by clips.
- The rear drain hoses are routed through the rear pillars and out of the rocker panel. In some vehicle the drain hoses are routed out through the metal roof slots and routed to the lower wheelhouse to drain out of the vehicle. The rear hoses are installed in a rubber grommet and retained by clips
Plugged Drain Hose
If a waterleak has occurred check for a plugged drain hose at each corner of drainage system.
- Open the sunroof window.
- To test for blockage, pour a small container of water into the module housing drain trough. Check each corner to confirm the drain hose is draining water.
- Use compressed air, 241 kPa (35 psi) or less to blow out any drain hose that is plugged.
- Test the system again.
- If the hose remains plugged, check to see it is properly routed and does not have a kink. Refer to Sunroof Housing Front Drain Hose Replacement or Sunroof Housing Rear Drain Hose Replacement.
Sunroof Motor/Actuator Initialization/Teach Process
Perform the initialization/teach procedure on a reinstall motor or a new motor. Ensure the electrical harness on the headliner is connected to the sunroof motor, battery power is applied, and the ignition switch is ON.
- Press and hold the sunroof switch to the vent open position until the sunroof window stops in the vent open position.
- Again press and hold the sunroof switch to the vent open position for at least 10 seconds, then the window should move slightly.
- Verify the sunroof operation.
If the initialization/teach procedure is not carried out completely, it has to be started again.
