How to close sunroof panel for BMW x3


1. Remove the panel above your centre rear view mirror.
(this is described in your cars owner manual)

2. When your rear sunroof is open, in the oppening gap you can see the control carriage. There is one Left and Right.

3. Take a screw driver and push both carriages backwards (use some but not extreme force). Possibly you can move one side and not the other, this is the symptom of the defect.

4. Take your (on board) hex wrench tool, put in the hex hole of the motor above your rear view mirror.

5. Manually close the roof.

take care to do this correctly.
Hope this helps

Radio freezes up then turns off and back on again some days it works fine other days not so well


I actually took a 06 Commander in last week with the same problem. We checked the windshield carefully, and then drivers door moldings and then blew out the drains for the sun roof.
It still leaked down through the drivers' side drain line area of the sun roof, around the window moulding, and dripped right in the vicintiy of the rear of the radio.
We finally found the problem by dropping the head liner down and using an inspection mirror with a flash light. We disconnected the drain line and plugged the nipple opening and poured a small amount of water into the sun roof pan and located a hole in the drain pan just above where the nipple is formed for the drivers' side sun roof drain line.
We could not see the actual leak source without the mirror and flashlight, as it was on the interior side seam facing away from the drivers' door opening.

Since carefully sealing the drain pan seam just a 1/4 above the drain hose nipple on the interior side, slightly above where the drain hose connects, the problem appears to be solved.

It appears to be a manufacturing defect in the plastic seam in my opinion. Could just be a faulty radio if your car doesn't have a sunroof, or a leaking windshield gasket.

2002 impala water dripping from panel where moon roof switch is, compass, fuel mpg info.


It is going to be the seal in your moon roof. Unless you have holes in the top of your car you can be sure that the water is coming from there.

Leak in car


Hi,
This is probably the sunroof seal itself, and are stupidly expensive.
Try this as a first shot -
Clean the seal with the roof open fully to remove any moss algae or dampness. Let it dry out properly.
Next, Use a silicone product for tyres to make them look glossy. This is formulated to help rubber retain it's flexibility - and is also an excellent moisture repellant.

You can close the roof while still wet with the stuff. It won't matter.

I did mine last winter when I had a wet drivers seat due to leaks.
No problems since.

If this works for you too, Please rate as Fixya so others may follow. Thanks.
