If your e36 has tilt option,PRESS AND HOLD TILT
Watch sunroof when it tilts wait untill it lifts a further half inch
This will happen in about 30/45 seconds
Providing you have no problems,this will reset

If it is not moving but the motor is running then the gears are stripped or the cable is broken . Have it fixed and if you still hate the car then sell it ( you will get more money if the roof works properly)

Sunroof wont open


I have a 203 Volvo S80 and the sunroof wont open. New fuse for sunroof, no power or movement adjustment. Could this be a burnt out motor?

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.

My Bmw e-36 sunroof doesnt open it makes a load clicking sound, we have changed the motor in the sunroof but still doesnt work


check for any obstructing rain/weather strips along the short sides of the sun roof that may be obstructing the glass, another test you can do is where the sunroof switch is located there is a greater piece of the headliner that you can pry off. there you will see the motor of the sunroof. Use a 7mm alan tool to manually open the sunroof so you can observe any obstructions.
