The DEI unit is a window control module for DEI alarm systems. You can get it at any DEI dealer.

No, it's not needed to get the moonroof to tilt. It's a convenience to allow for one-touch closing.

There is a rather short pause as the mechanism transitions, but you do kinda have to time it. You will probably get used to it after a while.

Yea, it took me a couple of weeks to get familiar with the sound of the roof closing..... to get it right every time.

The first two weeks, I would have to stick my hand out the window and touch the glass to see if it was closed correctly.

Well I guess I'm gonna try this one, it looks pretty sweet too! I'm gonna wait till dusk though the sun in NC is f'ing HOT right now! I spent a couple hours yesterday replacing my friends cap, rotor, plug wires, and sparkplugs on his 86' 325. We're both covered in a sunburn!

later,

Alright that mod is sweet, I did it earlier before I left for dinner (Carolina Ale house). It really wasnt that hard, maybe an hour of time. I couldn't figure out that part where you move the stopper at first but after that things went smooth!!! Great DIY!

Score another one for the LegendGS/MikeC DIY! Just got done. I must say, every step was there and the directions were straight forward. I got some grime on the felt around the roof opening, but that came off without too much problem. And I only smacked my forehead against the tilt bracket once when the glass was out. Good thing I'm short, I curled up in there and sat on the console Now I'm gonna go drive it. I also shaved the "Acura" off the trunk while I was out there, it was threatening to fall off any way .

What can I say, it's a rather big target. I buy medium shirts because they fit me, but I always stretch the collars trying to fit 'em over my bigass head I even blow out the elastic in flexfit hats

jump in and do the mod, it honestly took about 45 minutes (and only that long because I came back inside a few times to get a better look at the pics since my printer is out of color ink). Phillips screwdriver, a 10mm socket, and some channel locks/vice grips for two tricky bolts. Easy as pie- and we all know how easy pie is- "whore, slut, bitch, I know what you want pie, I saw what he did to you in that movie" - peter griffin
