That was the whole reason I went and took the pictures - I want anyone else that is mechanically inclined to feel there's hope!!! Hope to correct things on one's own and avoid the costly stealership!!!!!!

Seriously though, I'm glad I could help and add to the wealth of knowledge within this forum.

it's an annoying little problem that can be fixed for $30 bucks and an hour or so...

all you need is the desire and knowledge

I know this is an old thread but just wanted to say thanks. My sunroof seems to have the exact same symptoms. I'll be trying to fix it this weekend according to this guide.

Cheers

The most daunting task is taking the glass off the sunroof. It really isn't that bad to do it. Just make sure you put the glass in a safe place and work with shelter or when you KNOW it will not rain. Other than that, you need a #2 phillips screwdriver (the standard, popular size) for the slider pieces.

Please remember, my situation had broken sliders. If the visor itself is broken or places where the sliders attach are damaged and you have to replace the visor, this is uncharted territory - I've not replaced the visor. Best of luck!

Someone mentioned the entire sunroof rail and motor mechanism (which is where the sunroof goes when open, towards the back) should come out to replace the visor, I believe it was a BMW tech I spoke to many months ago. A service manual would be a handy tool to use for that job no doubt.
