Replacing Sunroof Seal - Part # Question & DIY Request

My sunroof noise is driving me nuts so I'm going to replace it myself. I've asked on two other threads on here without a response, so I'll try one last time.

I'm looking at Tischer's diagram (2006 BMW M5 Parts - getBMWparts.com - Exceptional Pricing | Unparalleled Service | Genuine BMW Parts) and not sure which seal I need, is it #3 or #9? I'm guessing #3 but just want to make sure.

I also have no idea what to do, so any help would be appreciated. I'm guessing it can't be too difficult...

There's a DIY for this on 5series.net

Go to this link:
http://forums.5series.net/diy-do-yourself-14/

in the top right, you should see a place to "search this forum". Enter "sunroof".

About 1/2 way down the page you should see a thread called: Sunroof seal replacement - any DIY?

-------

From Realoem.com

Part # 7 in the diagram is the seal: OEM # 54107245551

http://realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?...25&hg=54&fg=05

So to answer your original question, yes, it is 3.

Hey Fuddy, I noticed on the 5series.net thread someone requested the panoramic sunroof instructions. These look like they are for that, is it any different? I noticed one of the .pdf's specifically says E61 panroamic.

Thanks again!

Do you have to buy a glue of some kind? Those instructions seems like you peel the gasket, clean residue, and then push new gasket on again...

It is not difficult, just take your time to do it.

Slide the sun roof all the way back, and then peel off the old seal. If it is original or has been installed a long time it will probably leave the adhesive and parts of the seal still on the sun roof surround. Use some white spirit to clean it off.

Start placing the new seal at the midpoint of the roof surround, making sure that it is flush with the roof and pressing it firmly on to the surround. Maybe use a roller or a bottle to make sure you have a good fit. When you have placed the seal, you will notice that the new seal is too long (about 20 cm or so), so needs to be cut exactly. This is the tricky part, so line it up a few times before cutting, otherwise you will end up with a gap between the two ends (ask why I know...).

The sun roof then needs to be initialised, as the resistance will now be greater when closing, so the anti-pinch mechanism will kick in. From memory, press the button to tilt up and keep holding it till it does the whole process.
