My Ride: 2001 330ci
My Sunroof is Crazy

Hi all first time post. Just got a 330ci a couple months back and have been doing some general maintenance/repairs before doing any crazy mods. So my current project is my sunroof and what a project it has been. I have taken the whole cassette out inspected and cleaned. There was a decent amount of damage done up there but nothing that made it not work. So after getting everything greased up and put back it worked great. But the problem I've ran into is getting the motor to work properly. When I turn the car off I'm assuming it resets the motor because if it is closed then it no longer will slide back but will go foreard or tilt in my current situation. But if the glass is back then it'll work in all directions except instead of closing it'll automatically go to the tilt position. Now before someone suggests recalibrating or naturalizing the motor let me explain my issue with that. When I hold the tilt button it will tilt, but when it hits the end of the track the motor doesn't turn off and just grinds. So out of fear of stripping the cables or motor I can't hold the button the go through the calibration process. Anyone have any suggestions of how I would go about solving this?? Any input would be much appreciated to get this beast in top shape!!

A little more background: I did clean the tracks I did check for obstructions and the shade has been removed until I can figure this out.

Thanks in advance!!
