X5 panoramic sunroof

Hi there,

I have a complete roof (panoramic) out of a 2004 X5. BMW say they're unserviceable even though they can order me the repair kits (x3). The roof is on its way back together after a very large amount of time and patients. When i approached the job, so many peices were broken that i half fell apart. I am having trouble fitting the two piece blinds.
What I need is a detailed diagram of exploded view of the roof pieces, but BMW doesn't have a picture as they feel the roof is "unserviceable"
Any ideas on where i could find one (picture) or repair instructions, or photos would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

As a repairer on sevral diffrent sunroofs i came across this junk called bmw x5 panaromic sunroof i have removed the roof and cleaned out and washed the entire cable housing and replalced all cables and guides that came in 3 kits for the sunroof after two weeks of hard ship i managed to work out that the rear glass would open but it has trouble closing through engaging between the main cable and the guide for the second glass so dont buy the kit on its own you must replace the complete cassete and the cables and guides .
the reason for malfunction is the when the sunroof is new its packed with greece and what happens when dust and dirt gets caught with greece turns in to mud and wear out the c section of the cassette where the cable runs in and when the c section is worn there is too much freeplay for the main cable to activate the rear glass so it gets jammed so in my mind if you cant spend the money for the new sunroof close it up and live it closed because its not practical in the real world first it was mecedes with this roof and bmw copied the idea to get some business out of the rich guys who can spend up to 6000 dollars +

I just had the same problem... the rear glass has 2 suports, which you will need to insert a long screw driver in it and force them back manually... It's a pain, but I can get you all the pictures to this procedure...

BMW X 3 Panoramic sun roof initialization.


hello X3 driver, you can initialize the sunroof by pushing straight up on the button, (the same position that is use for vent). You will need to hold the button for atleast 30 seconds. The cassette should go to vent position, then to close, then to fully open, then back to close. Once the fully closed position has been reached, release the button. that's all there is too it. Glad to see BMW is taking care of it's customers.

BMW X 3 Panoramic sun roof initialization.


title says X5, but description says X3. i'll explain for an X5, but X3 with the pano should be the same. and i'll explain function of the roof, not reprogramming.

button is located on the panel at the top near the front & center windshield. its the switch on the far left on this panel. its a switch that not only toggles, but also slides forward & back.

with your finger in front of the button, slide it back & release. this will make the cover slide back and store revealing the sun roof. you know have 2 options (tilt the sunroof up or open the roof completely).

to tilt it up, press up on the rear of the button and release. the rear of both roofs will pop up. to close, push up and release the front of the button or slide the switch forward.

to slide it open completely, repeat what you did to open the protective cover (slide the switch from front to back). the roof will open completely and stow out of the way. to close, slide the switch forward and release. pano roof will now close.

to close the cover, slide the switch forward again.

neat trick: if you want to tilt the sunroof open without opening the protective cover, press up on the rear of the button (when the cover is closed) and release. the cover will separate in the middle exposing about a 2-3 inch mesh, then tilts the sunroof open. to close, push the button forward again.

also, if you are above a certain speed (can't remember what it is off hand) with the sunroof open or tilted, it will close automatically, then perform the neat trick on its own to keep air coming in.

one last trick: if you want to open the windows and sunroof from outside, press & hold the unlock button (forward button on the key) and you will see the windows go down, then the roof will open to vent. releasing the button will stop the motion of the windows & roof.

hope this answered what you were asking.
