Hey everyone, i really hope someone can help me with this and hopefully pretty quick. My liner has started to come off of my sunroof so i went to try and fix and, and i just f***** it up more. Could someone please give me good instructions on how to take off the entire sunroof cover, so i can try to reverse the damage i have done. The roof has like absolutyl no liner right now and looks HORRIBLE. Thanks ghead
I've got a print-out from the local BMW-dealer.
I have to remove my roof, to. He promised me yesterday that he would look in to it during the next day, when I came om my work this morning, half past 8, the fax was there.... 21 page's
I have it here for you guy's in PDF format...
To whom can I e-mail it to upload it somewhere... Don't have the possibility on my work.
The document is the official BMW instruction on how to remove the frame out, and back in.
Text is in Dutch but images will do mostly I guess.
Hey Vince you can e-mail it to me and i will post it up. my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org this will also help me out seeing how i plan on trying to remove my roof tonight, when i get off of work. Thanks
The problem is, now I'm back home, and don't have the PDF here... n
I visited the BMW garage today. The same guy helped me and looked, I need a new lever. Cost: 17 euro's
How to remove the roof from the frame is _quite_ simple.
On the outside you find two bolts, with 6 sides (don't know the english word..)
You can get them of with a NR. 17 (if that's used in the USA, that is..)
Then descrew the 2 black torq screw located more near the middle.
That would give you the possibility to remove the last half of your roof from the frame.
To unmount it completely you have to remove the clothing on the below of your sunroof (not the complete sky) and you'll find the last torq screw on the side, near the middle, on your left and right.
Descrew those and you can lift your sunroof out, and see the complete lifting frame etc. etc.
I dont suppose you could email me a copy as well ??? Id seriously appreciate it... having the same nightmare, coupled with trying to wire up an electric sunroof into a manual sunroofs position, without any of the wiring in place... aaarrrggghhhh !
WOW!!! Today i went ahead and tried to fix my problem. I ended up taking out my headliner and then trying to completyl take apart the sunroof. Its taking long as hell and i don't really have good instructions for wat I"M trying to do so its kinda hard. WORD OF ADVICE. Do not do this after work. It takes to long, save it for a weekend. I had to leave my car all taken apart outside overnight and then leave it when i go to work. IM SCARED. OH well
Yeah because my inner panel is somehow broken, so i cant follow all the steps of pushing it back to access all the screws the easy way. Because of this i had to take a different aproach which was taking apart my headliner then the cassete and the keep taking things off. Very tideous this way, but i guess now that its ALL off i can fix my sliding panel while im at it
