Anybody give me some clues on how to remove the sunroof?? It's a power unit, but has the spot for a crank.

I found a good one at a scrap yard, and my dads sunroof is rotting out where the brackets are, really bad!

Anyone have step by step tutorial or anything? If you know the size of tools i need, that'd be awesome because im going to the pick and pull scrap yard to get it myself.

Thanks!

I doubt that anyone has a writeup on this, maybe someone would know, best bet is to get a repair manuel!
