My fear with finding installing a used sunroof is I would be afraid it would fail shortly after I installed.


Do the parts in the rebuild kits not fix the parts that are weak/fail on these? Wouldn't that get you all new mechanisms?

If you're sure the only issue is exactly the contents of the rebuild kit, it should just work.

Worked a charm - much easier than the video procedure to cut the cassette

Are the two hex bolts the most rear ones? Mine X5 pano works but I wouldn't mind preventing a future failure. The front pano roof if big enough. I spent a good amount of time lubricating all the moving parts a few weeks ago.

Two hex bolts on each sides of rear pane - one easy to see, other is a little hidden by the back of the front pane
