Question about 2004 BMW 3 Series
L own a 2005 BMW X 3 2.0d fitted with a PANORAMIC SUN ROOF. May anyone assist me with the step by step intructions on how to intialize the opening and closing of the sunroof.
I have had my X3 for over 3 years, it was registered in Dec 2004. We have used the sunroof fairly frequently in this time and had no problems. I recently went to close the sunroof and the back panel did not close fully on the passenger side. I took it into my local BMW dealer expecting them to diagnose some electrical fault or new motor required. They have now informed me that the whole unit needs changing, the unit price for a panoramic sun-roof is approx GBP 2800! I am in shock! Unfortunately we did not take out extended warrantly cover.
Considering that the car is approximately 4years and 5months old I really feel that this kind of fault should not be presenting in a car of this age and mileage (approx 55K).
I would like to seek advice from anyone who has suffered from a major fault with their BMW and course of action taken to resolve it.
Has anyone been through a complaints procedure with BMW for a car of this age?
Any advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
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...
