I battled mine last night for about four hours, and have come to learn the inner workings the hard way. The cables have little plastic ends on them that attach to the back of the sunroof (this is the weak point which broke on mine). One of the cables was still working on mine, and I just pushed the roof back, loosened all the screws that hold the frame down, pushed the sunroof back forward(with the cables now hanging out over the window (use a blanket to protect the paint), then lifted it out. It's really a simple system once you get into it. It's just taking that first step. I'm just not sure how the front seal attaches, as mine has never had one, and I need to put one on it. Oh yeah, the crank gear has a stopping point at each end. If you've had that out and changed the gear position, that will change the start/stop points (learned that the hard way too). I'd like to see some instructions myself on the system (fine adjusting etc), as everything I know is trial and error (luckily my paint is not concourse quality, so I can get by with this method).
