BMW E36 Sunroof Problem

Hi Guys,

I’m having a problem with my BMW E36 Sunroof. It looks like my motor doesn’t recognize the position of the sunroof correctly. So, when I try to open the sunroof, it opens but doesn’t slide all the way to the back as it’s supposed to. Also, when I close it, it keeps moving until it’s closed, then, it continues and starts tilting the sunroof. So, it’s like it can’t tell that it has already reached to the stop point.

I did some research about this issue and it seems I’ll have to reset my sunroof motor position. I’ll show you that procedure (DIY) when I complete it. In the meantime, you can check out the problem with my sunroof below
