I have moved the mini cart before top.search using below code in my theme under


  <?xml version="1.0"?>

  <page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
     <referenceContainer name="header-wrapper">
        <block class="Magento\Checkout\Block\Cart\Sidebar" name="minicart" as="minicart" after="top.search" template="Magento_Checkout::cart/minicart.phtml">
        -------rest of the code ---------

This code moves minicart before top.search successfully but it is breaking the minicart item rendering block

enter image description here

giving error in console like below

Uncaught TypeError: Unable to process binding "if: function(){return 
getCartParam('summary_count') }"
Message: Unable to process binding "foreach: function(){return { 
data:getCartItems(),as:'item'} }"
Message: Unable to process binding "foreach: function(){return $parent.getRegion($parent.getItemRenderer(item.product_type)) }"

Can anyone suggest how to move it properly? Or do I need to make any adjustment in minicart.js?

Try this,

Remove your above code and add this code in default.xml

 <?xml version="1.0"?>
 <page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
    <move element="minicart" destination="header-wrapper" after="top.search"/>

Hope this will work out for you :)
