This is my first post, so here it goes.

Just some background -- I have a 2001 2.5 RS, and one day I noticed that the sunroof would not open on its own. However, if I push up on the back of the sunroof while holding the button down, then it will open. Once the sunroof actually "lifts" up (with my assistance), then it works fine. It will open all the way and close all the way with no problems. Its just that initial opening that is causing me problems.

Anyway, I found that the sliding mechanism which keeps the sunroof on the track (labeled part "T24") had broken. The front end of the plastic "T24" part was stuck in the track, so when the sunroof was opened, this piece actually broke in half.

I want to fix the problem myself, but dont know where to find the part and dont have an assembly manual for the sunroof.

Can anyone help out??

To be honest that issue of having to put your hand on the back of the roof to get it to pop is pretty common. I'm pretty sure every RS owner that has over 50,000 miles on their car has already adapted. I just push the button with my thumb while resting my other four fingers against the roof pushing up. Combine that with all the other squeaks and rattles and you know you are an RS owner!
