God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

Sun roof

Hi I bought a new handle for my manual roof I think Im Missing something. I have a large metal gear flat one side other side is recessed and has what looks like a stop or a nub sting in to recessed part.I think there needs to be something holding that gear in or centering it. I have see a ton of the exploded views but they do not show that part they list it a #1 transmission
Nothing in Bentley book on ot either any on have any pictures of there manual sun roof with handle removed .

Yes, I just checked the Bentley Manual and can confirm that there is lacking detail in this area.

However, Pelican Parts has lots of Technical Articles with lots of pictures and perhaps you can see what you are looking for at:
