The sunroof on our 1991 535i refuses to slide open. It will tilt up at the rear like it should when the button is depressed, but when I try to get it to retract to the fully open position it will not budge.I have had it looked at but the mechanic could not even get it to open enough to be able to remove the headliner so he could remedy the problem. Any suggestions would really be appreciated.

Assuming you didn't take off s/r motor cover.With butter knife or the likes take off square motor cover and insert the hex key from truck tool kit and turn clockwise I believe to open manually.Mine stuck open before and this corrected the problem in seconds.If your mech. already did this ignore my my $.02.If not find a new mech.dbaker
