DO not spend the ridiculous money that dealers and the like want to rob you of , the fix that I have discovered is so simple it that I am surprised it hasn,t been disclosed before . First thing to point out here is that the repair will render the rear part of your sunroof totally inoperable , what I mean is that you can still use your shades and slide the front glass open and tilt the front glass but the rear will remain permanently closed . Obviously if there is any other problems with your roof other than the rear stuck open this will not help. As a newby on this forum I will not disclose the fix in public if you wish to find out please feel free to contact me and send me your email so I can send the photos and details . The fix can be done by any one with some simple home tools and believe it or not takes no more than five minutes to do . Howard
Hi Howard THANKS for the INFO - I would like to see how you do this- I am interested in a 2005 X5 and now I'm worried about the Pano it has? Is this a problem on ALL these Pano sunroofs or just the older ones? What yrs do they not have problems ie. 2005-06,07,-current or is it the older models?? Thanks
