how to fix sagging sunroof handle

how to fix sagging sunroof handle

so i own 2 bmws with crank sunroofs and my e30 had this same i figured i do a little easy how to on fixing the very common sagging sunroof crank handle ....basically what happens over time is the metal eventually gets pushed away and wont hold the handle in place anymore very easy to fix:

if you can see in this pic there is a small round divot in the side of this metal this is what holds the handle up

there is a round ball that slides into each divot and holds the handle up snug

all you need to do is take the 2 ends of the metal and either take a pair of pliers or put it in a vice and push it back together and your handle will hold nice and snug again!!

push ---> <--- br="br" push="push">


i need to follow up with this and decide what i'm going to do with regards to the car's exhaust system...i have a 2.0L exhaust manifold and this system would fit well with that application...i also have a set of headers that are currently fitted to the rebuilt M10 engine and its likely the system i'll fit to the car...i wonder if its possible to buy separate specific components of the exhaust system that the Old Man sells is possible..
