    I assume your car has dirt and leaves in the sun roof track.
    My car did the same thing. I had to remove the sunroof and clean out the track, lube the drive cables and re-initialize the sunroof.
    It has worked flawlessly for more than 2 years, since the maintenance.Rod...

    It is not easy to explain.
    I have a steel sunroof and it is different than the glass roof.

    Go to:

    Read under exterior - sunroof

    Or get a TIS.Rod...

    The TIS is BMW's official Repair Manual on CD-ROM.
    The electrical manuals are on the Wiring Diagram System (WDS) CD-ROM.
