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.

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 would gladly e-mail it to you, but I've made and PDF of the faxprints at work, with the copier there, but I didn't mailed it home n

So you'll have to wait 12 hours for that (it's now 8:17PM here).

But I don't have the sunroof removal part in there. Just how to completly fix/remove/replace the frame :P

The sunroof removal part took me 3 minutes...

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
