Hi Beemer Lover!

I too love the Beems, have had 1600's, 2002's, a 2002tii(!!!), 320's, and even had a gray market 635 (WOW!).

I believe the sunroof crank attaches like the window cranks... that is there is an outside covering over a metal crank arm that can be pulled away from the metal exposing a hole where an attachment screw fits through it into the sunroof crank splined shaft center.

Hope this helps, and good luck!

My old mercedes w115 220 d (1974) manual sunroof is not closing. I don't know if there is any part of the sunroof missing beacuse the car was on a major reability program and I forget the pieces of the...


There's not a heck of a lot to the manual sunroof. I suspect some sort of debris in the track.
First off to remove a sunroof you open it all the way, looking down from on top of the car you will see the two chrome tracks on either side. They are healed on by two screws (there is a third adjustment screw on each side - it is obviously different and not holding the track down - don't mess with it -- or perhaps this is your problem...)
Remove the screws and the top to the tracks (they will lift right off) then slide the sunroof mostly closed and lift it out.
Now look into the tracks - back into the roof. Is there anything there that ought to not be there? Remove it - this can be challenging since it's narrow - a shot van and the biggest pice of tubing that will fit in there might do it for you.
Lube up the track with silicone lube (oil or grease will stick to dirt) clean the 4 feet of the sun roof. Notice the two rollers at the back these love the sunroof in place within it's open and push the back up when closed. With the roof out check that they move easily when you turn the handle.
Now back to the car - notice the two adjustment screws, they lift or lower the back of the track - perhaps you turned them when you were removing it the first time. In any event if they are up too high the roof won't fit (the wheels pushing out will try to push the sunroof door out of the car) You can see the small wedge next to the track - the wheels will roll up this wedge to close the back of the roof - and it needs to be in a reasonable position.
Don't force it you risk breaking the handle, the connecting mechanism or those wheels and where are you going to get a new one?
So now you can put the sunroof door back into place. Slide it back and forth - it should move easily. Now try to close it. It should close easily if not try adjusting the wedges down (this adjustment should not have changed but I am assuming you inadvertently changed these while trying to remove the sunroof door - it you're certain that you did not do that then it's something else).
Good Luck,
Frank

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.

your sunroof motor is tired, and the sunroof rails need to be checked. The key is the old style so get a new key from the dealer to get the diamond shaped one. those are unbreakable. Let me know if the sunroof cover (the carpet patch that keeps the light out) is sliding ok or if it is displaced

to program a new key:
open the car while locked with the new key via the door key-hole
sit inside and close all doors.

put the key in the ignition and turn to the second position (do not start, just to the ON position) and then back off (without removing the key) 3 times.

take the key out and press and hold the lock button (BMW EMBLEM) and with your other hand press the unlock button three times and let go of the keys.

you will hear the dorrs lock and then unlock.

the key is then programmed.

Does a 1990 bmw 325is have a sliding sunroof


I Might be wrong but sometimes then sunroof and shade must be lubricated every few years. maybe thats why it wont slide up but depending on the option the first owner put into the car. some sunroofs in these models do slide back and some just til.Because the moonroof is glass the interior parts get extreamly hot under the sun light, this might be the problem.

The back sunroof on my X3 will not shut. The front one closes and then reopens because the back one won't close. The sunroof won't even openfrom front to back.


press and hold the sunroof button, the sunroof will open and close (full cycle) then stop, this resets the sunroof system, hope this helps. let me know

Sunroof wont close on 1990 celica gti


some cars sunroof regulators come with a couple settings in sunroof
1 the 30 degree back tilt
2 half open stop sun roof
3 full open sunroof
these are common on sunroofs

now lets look at what could be the cause
bad regulator or needed greased gears
track needs to be cleaned which can stick the wheels down
most sunroofed vehicle regulators or gear boxes you will find in the trunk way up by the wheel wells in that little compartment tight to get out
also there should be a manual crank for sunroof placed somewhere in vehicle i know for my bmw it was back in the trunk on the gear box you will have to call dealer or look in manual to find sunroof manual crank and how to close
recommend taken to the closes dealer and have them service your sunroof mechanicals and have it cleaned up
sunroofs like cars needs to be cleaned on a certain milelage interval so that it will work for a long time
