I'm having a bit of a problem with the sunroof for my 1993 318is. The outer metal panel has closed properly but the inner panel has not. if the outer panel is closed the inner panel can be pulled forward to a nearly closed position by hand to reduce the road noise...but I'd like to restore it to proper operation without paying BMW $100/hour to take it apart since this car has 278,000 miles on it and still looks and drives well. Now we know why the e46 and e90 inner sunroof panels are manually operated!!! Has anyone on this forum acutally done their own repairs on this mechanism?? Thanks Hal Emrich firstname.lastname@example.org member 111171 PS I've been thru the door panel drill that appears elsewhere in this forum and replaced one panel and repaired the second one. A properly placed screw can help!
