SquireOne is an unknown quantity at this point
I'm looking at buying a bmw 318i 1985 with sunroof manual (handle crank) sunroof. I have looked at it, and I do not see how it is removed... the whole panel (or is it slid back into the roof body?). Is this possible? This picture here leads me to think so, since you can see the sky through it, and sunlight on the floor from it:





As a side note: the crank is partially broken, when you crank it open, it opens, but it wont crank it shut w/o a big hassle.

I want to be able to look up at the stars (for example) through the sunroof, if this is possible. Since there is no glass, it has to be either removed or slid into the roof (I saw no way to do this).

Thanks for any input!!!

the manuel crank sunroof like the auto one slides back into the roof. it also when cranking it past the shut position will lift up the back of it at an angle. the gears might be stripped which is why its a big hassle to crank it shut or put a bit of grease on the rails and that might free it up do you have pictures?
