Repair of the older sliding sunroof is a breeze. The pop-up roof is another matter entirely and it's VERY easy to turn a flaw with a simple fix into a problem that will cost a great deal to repair. The factory manual (even with Dave's addendum) is NOT sufficient to instruct most novice DIYers on how to fix the sunroof (in MY opinion). The guys that have repaired a dozen or more of them can make it look EASY, but it's NOT something you're likely to be able to perform after just reading the manual and several of the common mistakes can result in the repair becoming MUCH MORE EXTENSIVE AND EXPENSIVE.
