Sunroof Help 78 450SE
« on: 31 August 2019, 03:02 AM »
Hi, newbie here, 1st post. I have disassembled my sunroof and am in the process of re-assembling.
I was wondering if anyone has pictures of the sunroof underside (i.e. without roofliner) so I can check i have all bits n pieces in the right spot before i try and re-install. I would greatly appreciate, as ther is very limited photos online, and i have had a big, big search!!
cheers in advance!

Doesn't the forum online manual cover it? It is taken from the published workshop manual so it should. Photos are not that brilliant and I have often thought that the manual assumes a lot of previous knowledge but it should help. I have spent a lot of time simply looking at the car and not knowing how parts of it go back together but it comes in the end. The trick is not to despair.

Thanks marku. The online manuals are good but somewhat limited. with all the W116's out there, I thought someone might be at the point of headliner removal that could shoot some pics to assist. fingers crossed
