HOW MUCH DOES Sunroof weigh Extra???

e36 sunroof shuttle removal

Because I don't have 4,000. Thanks July 15, 2014 Followup from the Pelican Staff: I don't think so. When in tilt mode, only one side tilts up. I can hear the motor working and it sounds normal but its not functioning as normal. I had noticed that when in the popped up position, the right side was higher than the left side. Roof will go all the way back to open but will not close again unless you go through the full initialisation process.

BMW E36 Sunroof Repair

e36 sunroof shuttle removal

I seem to remember that a non-sunroof-equipped car has 1 - 2 inches more of headroom. I had to perform this repair again, as I was dumb enough to use the motor on the sunroof with the interior panel in its retracted position. It will have the diagram. The pivot piece for the lifting arms has tabs which contact the tracks and prevents the arm from pivoting. Disclaimer: The following information details the steps which I used to perform this brake job on my car. February 7, 2016 Followup from the Pelican Staff: You likely need to remove the unit and rebuild it.

Sunroof Headliner Panel Fix?

e36 sunroof shuttle removal

That is a guess, as your best bet is to remove the glass and inspect the track and guides. A couple days later I was trying to pull down the driver's side sun visor to shield my eyes from the afternoon glare when the clip that holds the visor to the headliner suddenly snapped into several small pieces and rained down on me. I heard plastic snap as it passed the point where the shade opens to when the roof is tilted. What part can I order to enable the inner panel to slide halfway when the tilt sunroof is used? For those of you who have removed the sunroof mechanism and left the original metal lid in place you can still save around 10 lbs by installing this kit. For those that are interested in reinstalling the headliner must make a center support tab to attached headliner and preventing from sagging. If you lose track of these gaps, i.

If I need the shades replaced can they do that without replacing the complete sunroof unit? Why don't you believe the sunroof option will add that much to you car? I tried to push the glass open by hand to remove the glass to inspect but the glass only rattles a little. Remove these rearmost bolts, and you should be able to drop the assembly down once it is free from the rearmost clips. Set it in a safe place. Insert the sunroof crank tool in the motor and turn. Zero setting is no longer visible to naked eye.

My advice is to remove the entire cassette and work on it removed. The framing as shown was completed in a week. If I remember correctly, the sunroof should stop at the close position and then you have to press the button again to have it tilt. B: The red arrow shows one of the plastic guide pieces for the headliner panel that has been completely bent and destroyed. Dropping the headliner is relatively easy, the only difficult part was removing the headliner, but if you have a friend, or an underage girlfriend, around to help hold it up while you unscrew it, and then both of you can take it down, it would be way easier. Now I just have to get a pair of new plastic rails and reinstall the shuttle. If you have changed your battery sometimes the sunroof will only let you use the tilt function.

Does it try to move up? I've got a 2003 530i and the moonroof will open and shut with no worries. January 8, 2014 Followup from the Pelican Staff: There are repair and rebuild kits for the panoramic sunroofs. At this point, the interior panel can be pushed back into the roof by hand. In reality, the sunroof is relatively easy to repair; what's harder is getting your hands on some of the items that need to be replaced. June 13, 2014 Followup from the Pelican Staff: I have not done this procedure, so I can't comment I opened a post in our forums.

I believe there is a rebuild kit for you roof. I have to manually press the wind shield down usually with something thin in a pinch my comb, since I like my fingers. I have to take my headliner out to recover it soon, so I wanted to try and fix it all at the same time. June 18, 2015 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Yes, i would suggest removing the entire cassette to inspect the tracks and guides. Can you remove inner panel without removing the whole sunroof? C: The attachment point for the control rail on my sunroof was broken in two. If the panel is very loose — you can move it about 3 mm or more — you have the same problem that I did. How do I adjust the front 2 bolts and mechanism? Give our parts specialists a call at 1-888-280-7799 and they can help figure out which part or repair kit you need.

What can be the source of the noise? Remove the sunroof glass and inspect the tracks. Any other thoughts that might be causing this noise? A Pelican community member may be able to answer your question. They can help you sort out the issue with the part. If you recline your seats all the way back, you should be able to maneuver the assembly out of the car. I also tried to remove the motor 3 bolts but can't seem to remove it.
