Entire sunroof system replacement

Member, atikovi was having trouble with the sunroof not working properly and decided to go to a junk yard and retrieve an entire unit- frame, motor, cables, etc. He then documented (with pictures) how to take it out and then install it into his S70 with success! Although this is for an S70 it should be about the same for any first generation 70’s model and 850’s. Thanks atikovi !

Sunroof headliner droop fix

Volvo 850 Sunroof Headliner Repair

My sunroof shade headliner material had come unglued to the point where it just hung down and hit me in the head if I closed the sunroof shade. Being creative, I shoved the whole mess back into the cover slot and kept the shade open. I think this may be a common problem with many Volvos since I see many of them in this condition.

This is largely a duplication of a Bay 13 post but I picked up a few more tricks and couple of got-yas.
