Aitsan Aitsan: Great, simple and very well explained video. You saved my wallet :) In 5 minutes it was repaired Thank you so much from France (owner of a X3 E83)

carmen: Thank you for this video. I am having an interior water leak in my 2005 x3 and would like to know if you could make a video on how to clean the out the drains located on the roof and underneath the vehicle? This would so helpful to me.

Dheyson Lopez: This guy save me $2500 parts and labor on my BMW X3 same problem he had it works... Thank you.

Sharon Brodt: Can't thank you enough for this video. We were able to get the large front sunroof portion to work, the back vent I believe is broken forever. It was great to get it closed for sure and also very happy the front portion still slides back and forth in its tracks.

Joe Bosch: Awesome and very helpful video. Thanks so much!!!!

Ross Feller: Thank you so much! Your fix worked like a charm!!

Trip Notik: Thank you excellently executed

Dart Maul: I real appreciate you did upload this video, if you did not, my car could be damaged trying to close that lid, thank you man

Max Benz: good video but get to the damn point. could have made this into a 4 min video ;)

Gay Dopson: fantastic video, very helpful. Only thing is..I have an 06 BMW X5 3.0 and when I take the panel off to find the motor, its not there. Do I have to take off the whole panel all the way down to the lights? Not sure where to find it. Thanks so much, this is exactly what my vehicle is doing.

legion: THANK YOU MAN YOU'RE AWESOME!!!!! It's so nice to see somebody taking the time to help another person by creating a video that saves me money thank you so much man you're incredible

Iram Bhatti: hi, I have 05 x3 and kinda in the same problem and after watching yooure video I can shut the back vent but my sunroof still wont open and its trying to open but one side is more tilted than the other side and its making it stuck from one side, more like its lifted up more on one side than the other .. pls kindly help me . my email is farhanb2010@gmail.com.. i can post some pics 

pcmcg: @Homerraas what model year is your X3?

Ann Zemaitis: Thank you. This works!

boogiefever1985: I think the key to these things is they should NEVER be able to open up to the air outside

Suzy Schroyer: Thanks for the second time! You have officially saved me $310. It costs $155US to have the sunroof closed by the dealer. A friend and my son both opened it after already paying the dealership once to shut it since I am not paying $2997 to have it replaced. I have now placed black electrical tape over the button. Cheers

Gerald Henderson: Where Can I donate. Need help badly 

caldyn phillip: Awesome stuff. It worked on my x3. The dealer wanted between $2900 to 4000 to fix mines.

Ya Pix: Thank you very much Sir! For decades I'm a 5-series guy. I was going to switch to an X3 or X5 because I liked the panoramic moonroof. Having watched your video in my research for my next wheels, I now realized the double-panel feature is trouble prone. Yes, I'm handy and mechanically inclined; but I've also become lazy in my pre-retirement years and just don't wanna deal with it to begin with. I think I should stick with single-panel deals.

kate gabriel: Thank You. Great instructions.

Cristian Musat: Very nice! Thanks, you are a very good person! for 3 months i have the roof open.

Victor Jara: Wow thank you this video was very clear awesome views and it helped me close that dang sunroof what a pain thank you again

10inja: Thanks so much, I was able to close the back.

Martha R: you were sent from heaven , its raining in my town and I need to close the rear glass .. what a great video, thanks for posting..

Minhaj Mohammad: Thank you sir it worked for my 2004 x3 3.0i. I followed your both part 1 & 2 videos and fixed the problem completely of the rear glass. Now I can enjoy the features except rear glass exhaust. 

Arnell Durham JR.: This helped me Bigggg Time I only had too see the video 1 X explained to my mechanic 5 minutes later fixed ya dig 8-25-2014. will make donation

Narad Maloo: thanks ...this helped a lot after my dealer told me it will cost over $1000... i did it in 20 mins ... good stuff!!!

gusmachi: My local repair guys in Essen, Germany http://www.js-automobiltechnik.de/ fixed it for me with the help of your video. Cost me 60€, best Video ever

Tommy Elmesewdy: Thanks for posting these videos (Part 1/2). Worked like a charm. 

Mreque89: You could probably grease up the rails and change the motor+gears pretty cheap since its a bosch motor. or just change the gears that are faulty on the back window. 

Phillip Smith: TRY THIS FIRST!!!!! Did you try adjusting the back window first? I had the same issue with mine. I took out the back window first. The front window was then able to lay flat. Then I was able to put the back window back in. If you notice when you put the back window in the screws have quite a bit of play as to where you can place them. And tighten them up. (YOU GOT TO FIND THE SWEET SPOT!) Problem fixed!! Hope this helps some people.

PorkysThree: Thanks so much for making this it's people like you who make the internet what a great thing it is!! Cheers from London!!! 

Gar Bo Wong: I thought I broke my sister in laws BMW sunroof and had to shell out 3-4k, until she told me about your video. This took 5 minutes including getting the wrench from the tool box. FANTASTIC!!!!!! Thank You!

Gerald Henderson: Any fix if my sunroof is stuck all the way open? The tool won't turn counter clockwise like in the video and I really would rather not go to the dealer. Please help!!!

Paul Honnor: Hi Thanks for the video it helped me a lot, the easy way to do the job is at the 3 minuet mark of the video if you press the button to make the roof go down then turn the key of the car off at that time it stays down if you do this just as it hits the back glass then continue at the 5 min mark

Edward Caicedo: wow! what a great video! is there a place where we can donate to your beer fund for saving us so much money?

ziad azoo: i have the same problem happened today on my 2006 bmw x3 3.0 I will try it first thing in the morning hopefully this works!!!!

Jean-Gael Renard: Thanks a lot! Your video really saved me !!

JZ Bowmannz: Thanks a bunch for the help!!!! My local dealer wanted $3,000 for this job...

Jr Guy MInto: I have 2006 530xi Wagon, my roof will open but it wont close electronically, and my i can't get my visor closed....do you have a video with that issue

imfuctifino: So many people having to use this fix ( great video) but what causes this issue in the 1st instance ?
