E24 Sunroof Motor question.

Hi, I was wondering if someone can enlighten mew. I took the sunroof out the car, and tested it directly to the battery. The motor turns on. My problem is that the motor seems to be working but it's not moving the gear. I can't figure out a way to take motor apart. Should I take apart, if so, how?...Or, is the gears broken and in need of replacing entire motor?. Thanks in advance.

Can't believe I missed your post the past 2 months..
I've replaced my motor twice.
It's not the motor. It's the tracts. The cables that move the roof via the motor.
Now if I can only find a reasonable upholsterer to replace the ol' headliner.
BTW I re- used an old 3 series SR motor
Good luck
D
