Exclamation Sunroof Stuck. URGENT !!

Just before my usual drive, i opened the sunroof and lowered my windows. When i got to work, i rolled up the windows but couldnt close the sunroof. Any simple way to at least get it to close. I dont mind fixing it this weekend, i just need help closing it for the time being.

If i press the button to open the sunroof, i hear the motor do a click. But nothing happens if i press the button to close it.

1995 318is

Im hoping to do this asap since my car is still outside

Welcome to Bimmerwerkz.....


If you pull down that cover where the switch is, you can crank the motor manually with a tool that is stored in the trunk tool set.......

it will look like an allen key....... info in your owners manual

also have you checked all the fuses to make sure none are blown?

I did it manually about 2 inches, turned on the car, and it closed itself.

Could this be the motor malfunctioning, or do i need to replace some wires/cables.

Seems like it was just out of alignment and bound up a bit; it could be fixed with minor adjustments, possibly.
