Rubber Strip Came Out Of Sunroof

Hi All,

Earlier today I was closing the roof panel for the sunroof (not the sunroof itself), and I sensed some resistance. I looked up, and I saw something through the vents in the panel. I then reached between the glass and the roof panel, and a two or three inch wide and about a foot long rubber strip came out.

I was wondering if anyone else had this issue. If so, is it easy to fix on your own? I bought the car new last April, so it should still be under warranty, but if it's an easy enough fix, I wouldn't mind saving the trip to the dealership.

Thanks again, and my apologies if this has been an already addressed issue.

Hi, I experienced the same thing since last nite. My headline cover for the sunroof has resistance pulling in and out and makes a weird noise...It also has a mark on it as if a velcro tape was stitched to it and left a mark on the fabric. No excess material though on the sides as you mention.. Did you fix yours? What was the issue? Is it easily repairable? Car has only 3k Kms btw.. Let me know....

I had the same thing happen to my 328i. Going to the dealership with my winter tire swap appointment. It still works fine though.
