Did this video help you?

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

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

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

pcmcg: @Homerraas what model year is your X3?

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 

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

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

Geo Von Lengerke: So sad that a fine german machine will come with issues like that, pretty much you will have a sunroof as a decoration

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.

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

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

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

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. 

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.

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!!!

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. 

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!!!!

Gerald Henderson: Where Can I donate. Need help badly 

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

Shane E Fountain: Great instructions! Thanks so much. My roof has been open for over a year, now it is closed. Wow!

robin sifarow: Thank you so much! There's a bear for you in sweden!

Richard Hyde: Excellent stuff. Thanks for posting.

frantz fleurine: Great video it helps me,im expecting more videos from you thank you sir.

Cecil George: I tried this but it seems like it's an on going issue I have to do it everytime, not only that I can't get it to flush the driverside flushes but not the passenger side.

Mike Bradshaw: This totally worked for me. Thank you so much! You gotta love You Tube!!!

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 ?

Nathan Smith: Nice work! The best video and info on this I have found. Thanks

Gerald Henderson: Where Can I donate. Need help badly 

appells: i watched you video and i dont even got a bbw... i should get a job haha

Kevin Gonzales: Thanks so much for this. I've got an 2004 x5 with almost the same problem. After watching your video, went out to my car with a hammer and screwdriver and... voila... I fixed the sunroof. I thought I was going to have a $500 bill on my hands. Instead, I fixed it myself in 5 minutes. Thanks for taking the time to make this.

colin Lyne: excellent well presented instruction and illustration first class many thanks im gona subscribe

hurleyboy417: good video! but I found it much easier to slightly apply pressure to the top while closing it and it worked great! 

Louis Henry: such a grueling and repetitive video, but good info

James Maxwell: Great video! Excellent instructions!

Luke Mckill: thanks so much

x38karizma38x: Thank you very much This Workss!! :D
