    I have a BMW 318i E36 Model (1997).

    The roof is fully automatic and did work perfectly but has packed up due to the 'total closure motor' ???

    The motor i need replacing is situated underneath a small black box under the hood. This certain motor is connected to the latches that lock into place when the roof shuts....

    I am in desperate need of this motor to get my car back on the road. Is there anyone out there that could help me find this motor or would sell me this motor?

    I was quoted £180 incl. VAT from BMW which i think is a rip off!

    The part number is: 54218163657

    I am willing to pay cash and collect or pay by paypal, anything! Someone please help!!!

    THis is the only one on ebay

    Try ringing Quarry Motors or Fab direct.

    If they dont have it your only option is to ben dover and take it from the BMW main dealer


    You could try
