Thomas, thank you for the reply. I am assuming the outer pipe is fine, since the damage to the cable is in the front almost where it attaches to the sunroof.
Can you tell me briefly how to install the cable. I am confident I can install it myself if it's not too hard. This is one of those things not included on my Haynes manual.
Spring is blooming here and I am very very depressed without my sunroof, so it's a priority right now.
BTW if anyone can answer my previous question, if I get the dealership to replace the cable how much should it cost. And how much does the cable run to purchase separately?
