633CSi Roof track and or assembly help/parts

Post by KINGJOHN808 »

Aloha all. Curious, are there any other substitutes from other series BMW for a E24 Sunroof assembly? I recently broke both sides of the actuator that lifts and slides back the sunroof on my 633 (part number: 54121858056)

I see that the part is NLA, but wondering is there any other fitment or parts that will allow proper operation of the roof? At this point, to cut down on possibilities of scratch the paint and or getting the roof stuck in the open position, have just kept it closed.

I’m even willing to go without the electric roof and put in a “pop top” glass roof if need be.

Mahalo’z in advance.

Kingjohn808; I have the same problem with the sunroof on my 1982 633. If you still have the car or were able to solve the problem, please let me know. I'm in So Cal. Thanks. Kevin

Aloha Kevin,

I essentially gave up on trying to find the parts. Used they are still 40 years old so not worth the time to find, remove then try to install on my car.

I made my roof “removable” so when I want some sunshine or moonlight, still working out a locking mechanism for it though.
