DOES THE SUNROOF OPEN (SLIDE BACK) AND CLOSE? I HAD SIMILAR PROBLEMS ON MY 86 420 SEL. MY SUNROOF WOULD NOT OPEN OR CLOSE, BUT WOULD TILT UP. I WOULD TRY TO CLOSE FROM THE SUNROOF BEING TILTED UP, BUT WOULD ONLY HEAR THE MOTOR RUNNING. AFTER, I COULD PUSH DOWN MANUALLY , AND IT WOULD SEAT IN THE CLOSED POSITION. I THOUGHT THE CABLE WAS FAULTY, BUT IT TURNED OUT THAT THE BRACKET THAT ATTACHES THE CABLE TO THE SUNROOF PANEL WAS BROKEN- A 3.50 PART. MUCH BETTER THAN THE 55.00 CABLE.

HOPE THIS HELPS
