I've had a rusty sunroof for some time now and it started leaking in the rain. I took the sunroof pan out and found a lot of corrosion in the left hand side of the pan. Lotusboy sold me another pan that only had a small section of rust, so the plan is to ask my painter to make one good pan from two and POR15 the absolute shit out of it.
Before the pan is sandblasted and welded the sunroof assembly has to be removed from it.
Make some sort of workbench and put the pan on it upside down
CRC all fasteners and leave to soak for a bit.
Remove the four nuts on the underside of the pan which hold the sunroof assembly on
Remove the nuts holding the electric motor on.
Turn the pan over. Remove the seal around the front of the sunroof. We are going to start by loosening the outer track.
Loosen the outer track by undoing this nut on both sides (bottom right)
And this screw on both sides
Pull the outer track upwards slightly on both sides:
next we are going to remove the wind deflector. pry the plastic covers off the wind deflector and undo the screw on both sides
undo the screws at the other end on both sides
fold the wind deflector back and undo the nut underneath on both sides
