SOURCE: 328i BMW, and the EML light is on

Sometimes you can reset the engine warning light by disconnecting the battery for ten minutes or more (be sure you have your stereo unlock code if needed).
That is not a good solution, it is better to diagnose and eventually fix the problem.
Have the car computer scanned with a code reader, the codes you get in return witll tell you exactly where to find the problem.

Here is the code list.

To get the codes the code reader must be connected to the car computer.

sometimes on Bmw you may need a Interface 16 pin Adapter, depending on the code reader.

Here is a home user code reader : PocketScan™ OBD II Code Reader (AXRCP9125 ...

Here is a good scaner.

Always better having the job done at a qualified garage.

Do you know of a reliable service that properly replace sagging fabric membrane on interior headliner osf BMW 528i yr 2000 with sunroof. The thin fabric membrane is separating from soft foam like backing...

heres a little hint,, take it to an upholstery shop that does vehicles, if you take it to a car dealer with a service bay and or body shop, it will cost you twice as much, and many of them farm out the work anyway ,, and shop around price wise, with today's economy ,, many shops need the work, so they will come down in price,, if they have a set price, ask them for a better deal. I just had my headliner, and door panels done on a 66 mustang,, prices varied a bunch, so I went to a few different places, saw what they were working on, and chose one that was about in the middle price wise, but they did good work, and did the job in a day ,

The sun roof scrapes the roof when I open it.

The mounts for the sunroof frame are inside the headliner under the hand hold pieces. Remove those and gently pull the headliner out enough to get to the bolts. Loosen the bolts and lower the tracks slightly - not enough the sunroof doesn't seal.

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.

95 GRND CHEROKE sunroof supports have come loose and it leaks.

The bigest problem with this model jeep sunroof is the cable conduit in the rear of sunroof is broken loose. can be accesed by removing the headliner. But the tracks are accessed from the sunroof opening after removing the glass. the part department at the dealership can give you a breakdown basicly the only replacable parts are the tracks, Price about $200.00 each.

Sagging headliner

If you can get at the headliner, usually a piece of trim or screws, peel back a small section at the edge and see what it is fastened to. Its probably a piece of cardboard or something similar. If so just pick up a spray can of contact cement or some rubber cement and glue the sagging piece back in place. Don't get too carried away with the glue or it will look "hard" when it dries. Hope this helps.
