In Reply to: 2 questions....sunroof, dust, and window seals.... posted by m3equiped on September 10, 2001 at 11:12:21:

1. The motor to the sunroof recently started making a noticeable audible noise when I am closing it. The best I can do to describe it is "oscillating". Any hints suggestions.

I would take it apart and find out what is going on before it breaks. Maybe it will just need a simple tightening of a bolt.

2. The brake dust generated on the E36 M3 is a nightmare. Is there anything I can apply to the wheels that would slow the build up down or just make is easier to remove?

Nope. I would recommend you change pads. I used the EBC Redstuff pads before and liked them a lot. They will make noise for the first 200-300 miles, but once broken in, they are much cleaner than stock, and perform better.

3. I have a window seal on the side hinged windows that just doesn't want to stay in place. Everytime I push it back down it starts to creap and bulge upward? It isn't causing a leaking problem but everytime I shoulder check to change lanes in bugs me. Any solutions would be great

My 95 did the same thing. I don't know of a fix for this except some good ole 3M sealant under the seal.
