    BMW Garages and Parts Retailers
    Hi everybody, I'm looking for a sun-roof panel for my 840 ci sport(1997). It's been extremely hard to locate one, new or used. According to my garage, there is a six week waiting list for fabrication of new parts in Munich, and I'd imagine it will cost the earth. Any help would be greatly...

  10. Is it possible to replace a steel sunroof with glass

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Is it possible to replace the existing steel sunroof with the latter glass panel. If it is possible, which model would fit and how easy would it be, there appears to be a few glass panels for sale around £40, this would be a big saving on steel and I would have thought a permanent mod. Thanks Mark

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Just thought I'd share a tip with my fellow 8 series owners who I'm sure have come across this problem. When I bought my car I was told the sunroof did not work. When I investigated, I found that the motor had been taken out, probably because of a fault that the previous owner could not...

    The fuse for the sunroof #46 which is 30 amps keeps blowing with the roof 95% closed. You do not have to touch the switch to blow the new fuse. I checked the sunroof switch on a multi-meter and the switch is fine. The wiring in to the motor seems fine. How do I tell if it is a bad motor...
