Greetings,

Rear seat bottom cushion out, one screw on forward lower tab each side.
Rear seat back out, two 7/16" bolts out at base and lift up HARD.
Sunroof cable retaining plate off, two 3/8" nuts.
Sunroof motor mounting bracket nuts off, (4) 7/16" nuts and washers.
In the trunk, push up the top horizontal trim panel above the sunroof mounting bracket.
Pull out the motor and bracket assembly, it may be a little stuck by the rubber gasket which seals the assembly to the bulkhead.

Send me a PM for a good deal on a used sunroof motor, and let the sun shine in.
