Moonroof Issue

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
When I click on the button to open my moonroof all the way, it opens about 90% and stops. I have to click it a 2nd time for it to open 100%. Is this normal behavior? I just want to make sure there is something wrong with my moonroof before I take it to the dealer.

Newer feature
From Owners manual:

Quote:
Comfort position
Stops the roof in the comfort position if the
roof is not fully open. This reduces wind noise
in the passenger compartment.
If desired, continue the movement by pressing
the switch.




For other problems:

Initialization procedure.


Procedure:

1) Sit in drivers seat.
2) Put the Ignition on (do not start engine)(done by pressing start button twice without foot on brake or clutch while you have the key with you)
3) Press the moonroof button to lift (lift not slide back) the moonroof and keep pressing the button (dont let go of button)
4) After holding the button for about 30 seconds the roof will start moving, firsdt more up then closed then slide open then slide closed.
5) Let the roof go through all its movements while you keep the button pressed
6) When the roof stops completely you are done. Let go of the button

The roof has now releearnt its limits and will hopefully work 100%

Easy to fix by running the initialization procedure.
May save you a trip to the dealer.

No, Im pretty sure this is how it works. One extra click is required to slide it back that last bit.

Thanks, I guess there's nothing wrong with my car. I didn't have this feature in my E90.

Totally normal, every moonroof I've ever had (back to MY1993) has this feature.

On E84 that could be changed via coding. I am sure it could be changed on F30 as well. E90 didn't have "comfort position" because all the way was its comfort position.
