Unless you can see a plastic plug somewhere in the plastic trim around the sunroof, I don't think there is a way to manually close this one... if it still has power, you could try assisting it with your hand.

How to manually close a sunroof


it just might be the contacts on the switch are dirty and with a little WD40 and steel wool or emery board nail files it will work again otherwise locate the positive wire and use a jumper wire from the battery to the plug if this does not work the motor might be locked up or burned out then you have to drop the roof liner to get inside to close it try the easy stuff first before dropping the roof liner

The windows and sun roof doesnt work i think i have a blown fuse


The fuse and relay box on the E30 and E36 models is located in the engine compartment. The E36 models also has relay boxes located under the left side of the dashboard.

Circuit Breakers
Resetting & Replacement

Circuit breakers are located inside the fuse panel. They are automatically reset when the problem corrects itself, is repaired, or the circuit cools down to allow operation again.

One of the less known about fuses that can cause all this to go out is the fuseable link. It is in a black plastic box near the battery. It is an appx 60A thin metal strip fuse. Check the website link to the right for more info.

Also, I suggest check your Fuse Diagram in the BMW 525i Owners Manual here.

Power Sunroof
Emergency Closure Operation

The sunroof is equipped with an emergency closure feature should the sunroof motor fail or the vehicle has lost electrical power. To close the sunroof under these conditions:
  1. Remove the front headliner trim panel.
  2. Using the 6mm hex key that is included with the tool kit, insert the key into the hex socket and turn the socket to close the sunroof.

  1. Open the sunroof lid 2-4 inches (5-10cm).
  2. Unclip the roof liner frame and push back into the opening.
  3. Close the sunroof lid and loosen the screws on each end of the gates.
  4. Pull in the retainers, remove the center screws and lift off the lid.
  5. Remove the cover over the motor and gearbox. Close the sunroof lid, if not already closed.
  6. Disconnect the wiring harness and remove the 3 mounting screws. Remove the motor and gearbox.
  7. Push the cables back evenly on both sides. Remove the rail covers and pull the cables out of the guides.
  8. Place the cable in the center position of the gate and press off.
To install:
  1. Install the cables to the gate. The cable are marked with the proper side of installation. Do not lubricate fabric covered cables.
  2. Pull the cables through guides and align the cables. Insert a hex key through the gate and cable at the 0 position.
  3. Install the motor and gearbox. The motor and gearbox must be synchronized with the hole in the drivegear aligned between the centers of the 2 gears. Torque the bolts to 2.0 ft. lbs. (2.8 Nm).
  4. Install the sunroof lid. Use new screws and torque to 2.5 ft. lbs. (3.5 Nm).
  5. Adjust the sunroof lid. Pull the roof liner frame into position and clip into place.

E36 Models
  1. Close the sunroof fully. With a quick actuation of the sunroof opening button, open the sunroof so the back edge of the lid depresses 0.08-0.12 inches (2-3mm).
  2. Slowly push the roof liner panel back into the roof. Do not force or use a quick motion or damage could occur.
  3. Remove the mounting screws and pull the lid off at the rear side. Do not operate the sunroof with the panel removed.
To install:
  1. Install the lid and check that the hooks and levers align. Install the screws with threadlocker or use new micro-encapsulated screws. Torque to 2.5 ft. lbs. (3.5 Nm).
  2. Adjust the sunroof lid. Lower the rear of the lid by operating the motor. Pull the liner forward and clip into place.

Good luck.

Sunroof leak


there are drain hoses on all all four corners of the sunroof. to access the front ones, remove the front inner fender liners. you'll probably see a plastic grommet/spout that the drain hose attaches to. in the rear, remove the trunk liners on the side. you should see the drain hoses running down the inside of the quarter panel.

The sunroof on my 1994 issuzu trooper sometimes works and some times not. It may open but not close. I have replaced the switch and it made no difference. How can I close it manually?


you should have a SUNROOF tool in your glove box. over the rear seats, in the head liner, there is a cut out for the SUNROOF tool. place the tool in the cut out and crank manualy. if you don't have the tool, a hex wrench is needed.

Lock/unlock pushbutton is sunk back into the door panel


Above the door handle you have the part you pul the door closed with, if you look to the bottom of it you will see a long piece of plastic, you need to lift this out , under that are two screws, take them out, then look for the little lite located close to the edge of the door, this light will just pop out, behind it you will find another screw, remove it, now look in the round heater hole located towards the top inner part of the door pannel and you will find a little plastic plug, with long nose plyers gently grab it and pull it out.you will have to remove the plastic molding around the handle, just use a flat head screw driver and pop it out
Now all you have to do is grab hold of the whole door panel and lift and wiggle it up, it is held in place by plastic hooks, don't worry to much as they are pretty sterdy, you must becareful not to move the panel to far away at first cause there are plugs you will need to undo, it is all really very simple if you take your time.
All the door panels come off the same way. good luck and have fun, I have had the same broken button and many other things, just today I had all the plastic trim around the floor and roof off and the whole head liner out to repair my sunroof moter.
