C230 Sunroof removal/replacement

Just bought a 1998 C230 and while it is in real good condition, I didn't get any service records from the seller.

I am trying to go through all the things I can think of that need lubing, etc and one of them is the sunroof.

It works fine but I'd like to be able to take the glass out to lube the mechanism real well.

In the repair manual, Mercedes lists 2 specialty tools that one uses to realign the roof after working on it and I'm hoping that isn't really necessary and removing the glass without disturbing anything will allow me to put it back together OK.

Does anyone have any experience/recommendations?

I can't answer the question, but my unsolicited advice is leave it alone. I have never heard of one wearing out. You will have enough actual problems to address probably.
1998 C230 330,000 miles (currently dead of second failed EIS, yours will fail too, turning you into the dealer's personal human cash machine)
1988 F150 144,000 miles (leaks all the colors of the rainbow)
Previous stars: 1981 Brava 210,000 miles, 1978 128 150,000 miles, 1977 B200 Van 175,000 miles, 1972 Vega (great, if rusty, car), 1972 Celica, 1986.5 Supra

Removing the roof panel is over-kill. Just make sure the sliding jaws are lubed once a year or so..............
