It was so loud it sounded like a bomb had gone off. You can only buy a kit from the dealer which comes with all the new parts rather than just the individual part you want to replace. This can be a time consuming procedure and the old sunroof slider may break and put excessive strain on the new rail which could also cause it to break. The good news is once the glass is out, getting the panel out is easy. There was no notable impact. It freaked me out but my windshield and other windows were intact.
I routinely will turn my car off continue my parents truck had a short and the windows would close. Also, when I push the button for it to close, it catches on the piece of metal that sticks up to deflect the wind, and pulls itself back so as not to damage anything. So I slid open the sunroof cover and when I did pieces of shattered glass started falling on me and there was a hole in the sunroof. If I am on the other side of the table I would also consider this as a minor problem as compared to lets say. Long term the extra drag of it being thicker may be a problem, but it's working great right now. Remove them and lift it out.

An easy way to detect if the sunroof rail is broken, you should be able to tilt the sunroof by hand, but the sunroof will not tilt on it's own by the sunroof motor. It isnt so much that bmw Hi fuses are good circuit breaker reset comfort relay solder points all intact - still no windows or sunroof power.
You cannot drop the sliding cover into the pass compartment. Assuming Im not does anyone know if the nextgen 3er will be available with a hardtop vert that includes a sunroof I like verts and I also like sunroofs Oh you meant just a glass i dont want a fixed glass panel. I had my sunroof blow out last year almost to the day. In my case, it needed to be at max height of the adjustment, so I just took the screws loose, pushed up a good bit and tightened everything back down. After several attempt it closed itself.
They all said car was less desirable secondary to no sunroof.

The cars in great condition outside of one problem the sunroof while it will open close and tilt when it closes it wont completely close.

Came pretty quick, as I recall. Has anyone used this seller from Istanbul? I sprayed it on a microfiber towel, not directly onto the headliner. All of them happened on freeways. Before ordering, please take a close look at the sunshade in your vehicle and ensure that the shapes of your sunshade sliders are the same shape as the replacements that we offer and that the sunshade slider is the broken portion of your sunshade. I had been driving with a Thule box that covers close to 85% of the area of the Ive got a 06 330i and Im wondering if I have a problem or if all of the e90s do this. This is so common that bmw has a left and right kit for revamping the sunroofs mechanisms.
Best of luck with your letter and claim. I looked in the rear view mirror and glass is falling all over the place. I found it easier to do the driver side from the pass seat and vice versa. Carpet cleaner works good to clean the grease off the headliner. Any of you guys know if the inner fabric liner can be released and removed without removing the glass panel? There are I bought 2010 328i in November 2009. I would recommend replacing both sunroof rails while you are doing this procedure. The dealership here states that I must have driven through high water forcing water in through the rear baffles hence the problem was cause by my driving.
Has anyone used this seller from Istanbul? Joe Nobody that walks into the dealership buys a 2007 fully loaded 335 coupe. S When I did it. Anyone know if I can order a 335 for European Delivery without a sunroof I am very tall and I would prefer not to have a sunroof if possible. Ive heard about sun roof problems before.
