Removing the tilting sunroof panel is a little bit of a mystery to many owners. Since there are no exposed fasteners, at first glance it can appear to be very difficult to remove. If you want to keep your sunroof working properly it begins with cleaning and lubricating the tracks and slide arm mechanisms. This is the best way to keep from damaging the drive cable or the motor transmission gears. The panel must be removed to lubricate, repair and replace the sliding and tilting arms and brackets.
In this video Kent will go over the step-by-step procedure for removing the sunroof panel and replacing it. He even demonstrates the challenging procedure of getting the roof off it you can not even open it. (see from 4:41 to 6:50 minutes into the video). That is not covered in any other manual!!!
This video only covers sunroof panel removal and replacement on tilting sunroofs from 1986 to 1995. It does not cover any repair work to the roof, cable, motor or angular arms. It also does not cover procedures for final adjustment. These subjects are covered in the other videos in this workshop series. See related products below.
A 1990 190E 2.6 with a faulty roof and a 1993 300D with a stuck roof were used in the filming of this video.
