Sunroof -- Can Someone Id This Part Please?


Recommended Posts

So I finally opened up the non-working/stuck shut sunroof of our 1969 1600-2.  I knew there was gonna be some rust but not this bad.  There is a part underneath the sunroof that rust ate through.  Can anyone tell me what this part is?  I took it off the sunroof (held by 5 clips) but obviously, this one's beyond repair.  Also, is this part still avalaible?  Or am I SOL on my sunroof repair project?

That looks like the interior headliner frame that clips to the upper/outer metal part. Those are not made anymore and yours is pretty messed up so you will have to get another one solicit the wtb section. You will then have to possibly have it recovered with new headliner material or use as is if you want it that way.

Thanks Mike.  Yeah, this frame is toast.  My headliner is on my long "to do" list, so I figured before headliner is replaced, I deal with the sunroof.  But you're right, it's the frame that the sunroof headliner gets attached to.  I took out rusted crumbling pieces of it (along with headliner) from the rail opposite to where the cable runs.  Yup, it's WTB for me soon. 


Thanks again ....

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
