Remove plastic trim front of sunroof?
 
I have a rattle noise coming from the sunroof whenever I drive over bumps and stuff. I have located it and it seems like it's coming from the front of the sunroof. There's a plastic trim in the front that I'm trying to remove but I can't figure out how it's fitted and I don't want to break it. I'm guessing there's a screw of something loose behind that plastic piece which causes the noise.

Does anyone know how to remove this plastic trim?

Here are all the TIS sunroof related instructions.

Is this the piece you are talking about?

Hehe that's correct! I had a look at spaghetticoder but I must have been blind because I didn't find that TIS. Thank you! :)

For some pages you need to make sure the proper model is selected. I normally browse the spaghetticoder site with an E64 cab as my model. In this case (e64) the sunroof links are all greyed-out. You must select E63 to see sunroof links.

Hi Yorgi...I have he same iisues as jacobsweden...however the links you provided don't seem to work for me when I click on them...Can you please repost the links...My moonroof when closed will rattle...If I apply gentle pressure along the aft section when closed, the roof will open up about 5mm...Thanks

Unfortunately the site that we have been using for years, spaghetticoder.net, no longer has the BMW TIS manual online.

I do not know of another online copy of the TIS. If I get a chance I will try to upload the pages from my local copy of the manual.

Thanks anyway...I decided to take off the interior cassette rubber guards and found all 4 of the torx screws loose...So, I closed the moonroof back down and tightened in situation...Rattling has stopped and there is no wind noise...
