Sunroof ..

Hello everyone, I just purchased some sunroof lube from Rusty Cullens and I need to know where to place it on my w124. Does anyone have any photos or anything to let me know where to place this stuff at? Thanks in advance!

Its Very Easy! Clean the old grease with some brake clean in the sun roof rails..the apply the new grease in the rails..I Use a Metal handle paint brush bent at a 90 to lube the rails better
Then Open and close the sunroof and reapply if Nec..

Thank you, I had a mercedes mechanic of all people tell me to use a light oil like wd40 and that just didnt sound right, especially after I recieved the grease(petrolium jelly looking) from Rusty it didnt make sense, good tip on the paint brush too!

The proper lube method is described in the service manual. It involves removing the sunroof panel for a through cleaning of the rails and sliders and whatnot before applying new grease. Also covers adjustment. Cleaning and lubing the sections of rail visible when you open the sunroof is better than nothing.
