X3 Sunroof

I recently bought a 2004 x3 and noticied the rear sunroof shade panel will not close. All of the other functions work but the rear shade will not pull forward. I have seen a lot of posts about this. Any advice regarding how to fix this or at least close the rear sun shade. I live in Minnesota so i dont car too much.

hello All
New to 04 BMW x3/ Love the vehicle and how it drives, not the panoramic roof so much/ tilted and stuck open /could not close/left rear glass would not shut down/ Motor engages all mechanisms except the left rear drive/ Managed to close front and rear glass and pull the fuse before motor tried to reset the saftey feature and reopen the glass /
So... My QUESTION IS...Has anyone actually replaced the cassette with the updated metal improved cassette themselves?? (ie) purchased the proper parts and done the labor themself, without hiring someone else to do the hard stuff?? If so please reply/
Please, not interested in I think I or I tried this or I had a similar problem... TIA/ Warren
