Mein Auto: 650i
Moon Roof Cover

Guys I have a question. I made the 800 mile voyage from Memphis to Orlando to pick up the 2006 650i I purchased. Really happy with the car and drives like a beast... However, at some point on the way back around around Atlanta, my wife and I decided to open the Moon Roof. The visor went back as it should, then we heard a loud click. Wondering what was going on, I pushed the button to have the visor retract. and only the front part came out


1) Has this ever happened to anyone? If so, how did you resolve the issue?

2) The car is a CPO BMW, so would this be covered under the warranty?

Thanks in Advance...

There are two modes for the moon roof - if you push the button inward (so technically you'd be pressing in the upward direction towards the roof of the car) the visor will retract some and the back of the moonroof opens upward. This is to allow heat to escape the car. If you take your finger and essentially "pull" the button toward the back of the car, you'll open the moon roof. Pushing it forward (toward the front of the car) should close it.

The moon roof will not open. At least on my 2010 it will only tilt. Not sure why your cover will not return? Did you try to open and close again?

Sorry to hear about your troubles on the new ride. As DRL650 stated, the roof only tilts but the cover should slide back and fourth. It seems yours got stuck due to something breaking. The car is CPO and I think it should cover these mechanical issues since it's not the roof motor that is having the problem. Take it to the nearest dealer and have them check it out. This might be a good time as well to develop a relationship with them. If you get no satisfaction, give BMW NA a call but try working with the dealership first. Good luck.

Thanks for the advice... I intend to drop by my local BMW tomorrow on my home from work.

I see you are in Memphis so I guess the car will be going to Roadshow BMW. I didn't buy my car from them but they have been very good to work with. My car is a CPO as well, it's been in the shop twice and both times I scheduled an appointment and had no problems getting a loaner. I have also used Alpine Autoworks for maintenance that is not under warranty....reasonably priced BMW only indpendent shop.

Yeah, it will be going to Roadshow... Good to hear you have had good experiences with them. I have a buddy that has bought 3 BMWS from them and he said that he would introduce me to the Service Manager. Apparently they have become quite close, so it never hurts to have a good relationship with someone that could possibly help me out in the future. Where is Alpine Autoworks?

Sounds like it popped off its track. My old E36 would do that if you slid the roof all the way back, so I'd have to pop the cover for the motor and wind it by hand with an a-wrench.

Dropped it off at BMW today. Should have more info for you in tomorrow. Was due for an oil change in 1800 miles, so taking care of that also, along with new wiper blades. He said the wiper blades were free bc they are a maintenance issue. Are oil changes free also if under warranty?

Yep. If under warranty and you have the maintenance warranty as well, all these maintenance things should be covered. Since your car is an 06 the original coverage is off but sometimes on CPO deals, the dealer can throw in the maintenance plan. You may want to check to see if you have it on yours.

Just heard from BMW, the moonroof needs a gasket... He said it is a pretty big job, part should be in tomorrow and he estimates it should be ready Monday or Tuesday. It IS covered under warranty, I just have to pay a $50 deductible. The oil change IS also covered with the warranty. So I'm getting the roof fixed, oil changed, and new wiper blades for $50. My advisor said wiper blades are $60 by themselves outside of warranty, so thank GOD for CPO BMWs

If you end up needing this part, I have always purchased from Tischer (getbmwparts.com) for my OEM parts needs. Great customer service (I've dealt with Jason and Evan), and it will save you some $. Price is 1107.50 for that one.

So if one piece of the moonroof gets stuck it means that the frame is bad at that part is 1100-1300; seems extreme. Any chance the issue could be something else?

I'm with you JPEG23! That seems a little extreme. I love my car but this is ridiculous! I may just have to open it up and take a look.

Let me know how it goes if you open her up. It is hard to swallow a $1300 fix when everything is working mechanically. It just seems like something got detached. Personally, I think the quality of these moon roofs suck. A car like this, you shouldn't be having these problems.
