We removed our own liner and discovered our original would be easier to repair.. so we repaired it. Now I have this extra cassette that is excellent and ready for service. We are in South...

    So my sun roof goes forward and back just fine but when I try to go forward and tilt it, it doesn’t seem to move at all the mechanism looks like it moves slightly but doesn’t actually change position of the window, anyone got any idea could it be simple as greasing up the track it runs on or is...

    Has anyone ever experienced any sunroof/moonroof randomly shattering on e46's ? I'm debating on choosing (323i w/sunroof) or (325i no sunroof) as my first car, but i'm leaning towards the 323 since e46's with sunroofs are quite rare in the country, and i'd like to have a sunroof either way...

    Hello, I have read all the threads I could find about sunroof drains , but I cannot seem to find the lower end of them on my 2001 325Xi Touring. I took the inner fender well off and there is just nothing there, no sunroof drains and no engine compartment drains. On the drivers side when I pour...

    After my 2005 E46 sunroof became possessed, I came to the almighty forum gods to seek exorcism. What I found was the same symptoms I was having and several solutions. After trying all of these solutions (aside from holy water) I had no success, the sunroof demons still prevailed.:evil: What...

    My 2001 330i with 101K has a sunroof issue. The one touch is not working and the sunroof will open and close only by repeatedly pushing the switch. Each push of the switch moves it about an inch in the desired direction. I checked the rails and everything appears clear and there are no odd...

    Hi all first time post. Just got a 330ci a couple months back and have been doing some general maintenance/repairs before doing any crazy mods. So my current project is my sunroof and what a project it has been. I have taken the whole cassette out inspected and cleaned. There was a decent amount...

    Is this problem due to the actual glass or the cover that gets stuck?
  11. E46 General
    Alright two quick questions. First off my sunroof has been broken for some time now and I finally decided to dig into it this past weekend. The sliding clips for the actual glass piece are shot so figured it's easier to just replace the entire sunroof cassette. I have the opportunity to get a...

    So my moonroof does work, it opens and closes fully but when I press or even hold any of the buttons, the roof only moves about an inch at a time, I just have to keep pushing the button like 15 times to get it fully open lol but anyway opening, closing, or tilting the roof only moves a small...

    Is the sunroof glass panel supposed to be flush with the roof on the rear edge? Mine is flush on the front but about a quarter inch down on the back edge. It doesn't leak but there is some wind noise when the sunshade is open. I tried "resetting" the sunroof by holding the center button but when...

    I have a 2004 330i that has recently become an absolute nightmare. I have had the car for almost 6 years and BOOM, I move back to the Pacific Northwest and **** takes a hard left turn. My sunroof broke and I need to find someone that can repair it. Eastside German said they can't do it. Not...

    HELP!!!!!!! I got into my 2000 328i (E46) today and went to open the sunroof. When it didn't open, I pushed the forward button and the glass vented. When I pushed the backwards button, nothing happened. Is there any way for me to get the sunroof closed? It is supposed to rain in the next three...

    -Sunroof motor cover trim panel repair- That sob breaks so easily. Seems every time I remove it I lose one or two of the tabs that hold it in. So today the last one broke, and it just falls. This method may not be for you, personally mine had no tabs left and was headed for the garbage can...

    Was wondering if anyone knew why their is no cover for the sun roof. I hope this makes sense. What I mean is that you can always see the glass their is no cloth to pull over it inside the car. I'm not sure if this is only my car or everyones.

    Hi all My E46 325ci came sin sunshade and wiper. I purchased a new sunshade and sunroof repair kit however the actual roof (glass type) works fine although it does make a bit of a crunching sound when it goes fully into the roof. My question is do I need to take the whole roof out and install...

    Sunroof cassette broken on my 2003 330i sedan. Took to my mechanic and says the part costs $1500.00 from BMW. Has anyone else had a similar problem? I told the mech to just try to close the sun roof and disconnect the button to open and close sunroof. He says he may not be able to, he is going...

    Hi, so I bought my 2003 330xi a week ago and the sunroof does not work. It will go up and down in the back but not forward and when I try there's a lot of loud repeated clicking. The drivers side of the sunroof appears to be higher than the passengers side leading me to believe that the...
