: Sunroof stuck

Did a search but found nothing I can not get my sunroof to open, it will pop up but not open. I need to open it up some to get the liner off, and remove the sun roof to inspect why it is sticking .
The motor is working, and I m afraid to use the crank and break something.
So how can I get to open ?

the crank is the only thing i can think of. prying it open is definatly out of the question. Try the crank it shouldent really hurt anything.

Search this forum for people parting out there E34s. There are two recent posts on that. And lay off the crank. It can cause a myriad of health problems and with long term use it will suck your eyes back in your sockets. :rolleyes:
