My2002tii.com Sunroof Installation Sun Roof Installation and Refurbishment Last Updated on The Golde Sliding Roof system is somewhat of a mystery when it comes to documentation. The factory shop manual leaves a lot to be desired. I have been hard at work documenting this thing as well as installing the system back into the car, to some degree by trial and error. Hopefully you will find the information you need here for your car.
I have plans to write a complete document on the sunroof that I will provide later when I have all the of this stage of the car completed. Note: these photos assume you have your headliner out of the car. The bulk of what is here applies but the sunroof panel cover has not been installed until the end of this article. In my learning and installation process, I fit the sliding roof BEFORE I put the new headliner in so it all worked. I would strongly suggest you do the same. Volvo Penta Tamd 71 B Manual.

We wanted to share with all our friends an affordable new way to repair the sunroof on your Ford truck without having the hassle of going to the dealership.
I was able to find a local company who does metal finishing. They were able to polish these on a large scale buffing wheels to the polish level you see here.
For placement I installed them to ensure they were the way I wanted it to look. There are 3 types of seals in the sunroof: 1) the rear (never seen in normal use) which is like a rubber squeegee 2) The rear which is sort of short and wimpy! 3) And the front, which on an original car is probably dirty, loose and/or worn out.
All of the seals are still available new from BMW. The front one has the 'P' shape which when the roof closes all the way forward, makes an air tight seal. I found the easiest way to get it right was to fold it in half to find the center, then find the center of the sunroof and begin gluing at that point.
This can is your best friend. Don't start this project with out some. It blows that 3M weather stripping stuff away and it's clear, so no unsightly yellow stuff to clean up. From a placement perspective, make sure yours is just below the roofline with the 'P' pointed towards the back of the car.
Done right, you should not see any grey sticking up. Carefully, but liberally apply the Rubber Glue against the front edge of the cavity just below the roof line. You can use blue masking tape to hold it in place while it dries in under 5 minutes. Do one side, then the next. At the rear, run the strip inside the car as shown under the roof opening. Then when you're done with both sides, apply the rear seal by placing the thicker edge just along leading edge of the roof. Bring the ends down to meet the front seal as shown.
Ok, it should look like this now. Ready for the next steps. I neglected to take a photo so I'll repeat the shot of the old roof from before. The rear rubber seal is glued directly onto the roof. It spans the width of the roof. The 'hump' of the gasket goes toward the exposed lip of the back of the sliding roof panel itself.
Hopefully you have saved your old roof gasket from the opening of the roof because I don't believe they are available anymore. This is fastened with the rubber glue also.
It fits against the leading edge of the roof opening. These are the sliders for the front edge of the roof. They are still available. The clear plastic part slides on the the track themselves. The cables themselves fit into two round tunnels in the aluminum tracks.
Shown below is the rear of the cable slightly installed into the track. The tab and bar piece lift the rear of the roof up to meet the top edge of the car when it's all the way forward. NOTE: Strong warning here. If your cables are not broken or bent beyond repair, recondition them. The new ones are prone to breaking. Give them a good scrubbing with a brass or plastic brush and then lube them with moly type grease.
I put a glob in a shop rag and pull each cable through it 2-3 times and wipe off any excess. Ok, next you put the brown track gaskets down which sit between the body and the sun roof track cable tunnel shown below under the tracks. Then attach both of the rear cable tunnel tracks to the body.
