I know there has been a lot of talk on here and i have even visited this website http://www.geocities.com/karlkarlb/e36_sunroof.html but i still cant get this thing apart. My problem is that the sunroof is stuck and if you look at my car from the outside then the rear passenger part of the sunroof is sunk in. I tried taking it apart but i cant get the interior headliner panel to slide back so i can access the bolts and everything to take it out. In the website it says to move your sunroof back a little in order to slide the interior panel back into the roof. Well my sunroof will only move about 2mm to the front and rear. Any suggestions? Thanks, Jake (bmwfool)

your lifter is probably broken. if you take it to a shop it will cost maybe 500+ to get it fixed. ive heard cases where it costed 1000+. you can manually open and close your sunroof. by using a Hexkey/Allen wrench and spin the motor manually. just pop open that covering and your sunroof motor is inside.
