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 to try. REally dont want to spend close to $2000 to fixe the sunroof. Any suggestions?

When I had my sunroof completely rebuilt it cost close to $4,000. Fortunately my car was under warranty from the dealership. I don't see why closing it would be hard to do any of what you suggested unless your mechanic just doesn't know these cars or how to work on sunroofs. Often there are specialist companies that do sunroofs. A lot of the mechanics use those guys and don't do it themselves... anyways try this link:
