Anyone knows how to remove the sunroof on 1995 318ti.
The headliner of the sunroof is so messed up. I would like to replace it myself.
I believe we need to remove the top first (the metal part outside).
I don't know where the pins are, and what are the right tools too.

thanks.

I couldn't tell you about it. I haven't heard of anyone doing it on these forums. I would think the job would be pretty difficult. I would take it to a dealer or a mechanic. I don't know though, it could be really easy.

Man, you don't want to take that sunroof out unless it is absolutely necessary, you can take out the headlining part of the roof without taking out the whole cassette, or even the rest of the headliner. You will have to close your roof and put it in the ventilation position where the rear end is tilted up, you then remove the screws on the underside of the metal part of your roof while its in this position. You can remove the metal part (that is the same color as your car this way), then you just take the floating headliner out, by observing where the screws and catches are. (PERFORM THESE OPERATIONS CAREFULLY).

Based on the link that El Presidente posted... does anybody know where to get these clips that have come loose/broken to reattach the liner?

I've spoken with BMW and all they are willing to do is sell a new cassette.. for the low low price of $1k.
