    2002 325i sunroof

    my sunroof got shattered by road debris and the dealership is going to charge me $2210 to replace it. It would have been $600+ to just change the glass but glass particles got lodge into the unit.
    Does anyone have suggestions or advice?

    Thanks

    Tell the stealer to kiss your a$$.

    I am not sure what the sunroof glass cost but I am sure you could get one from a junk yard or even new fairly cheap with CCA. It is a very easy install. Your problem is not installing the sunroof but cleaning out the sunroof cassette. I suspect this could be a real problem. I am sure it could be accomplished in a day. Assuming the sunroof motor and sunroof cassette work fine, the cleaning out should not be too bad. You may even be able to just tilt the headliner and find enough room to work with a vacuum. Remember to keep your hands clean because you can dirty that headliner very easily. You could even find a independent to help you out. $2210 dollars is a rip off. I see no more than 8 hours of labor to perform a full headliner removal and install. I may be wrong.
