as i finished reading all the replies i just realized i am probably the only retard who messed up this mod. I have a 4 door and after i changed the location of the stoppers i tested the rail and the drivers side guide frail went wayy too ahead and hit the sunroof frame of the car and it wouldnt go back so somehow i managed to put it back and then realized that the slide poped out of the rail now i have no clue how to pop it back in. i will post up pics in a few hours so that everyone gets a more clear idea of what i am talking about. PLs i need your help is there a screw or anything that i can unscrew so that i can pop the slider back on the rail.
thanks

The DIY mentions using needle nose pliers, but I used and ratcheting offset screwdriver like Craftsman Offset Ratchet Screwdriver Set - Model 4116 at Sears.com. I purchased a ratcheting offset screwdriver similar to this Craftsman at Lowe's for under $5.

It was a little weird to get these off due to the postioning and would be easier with a 2nd person holding up the rails for you.

Good luck.

alright note to self.. when working up side down.. left is right and right is left...
no wonder i couldnt get those two damn screws off... i was tightening them instead of loosening them.

the job should have taken 30 minutes tops...
took me a good hour and half because it took me at least another 30 minutes to figure out what i was doing wrong.

-vice grips are you friend for those two screws.

amazing/simple mod. i love it.

In my big tool set I have a socket screw driver with a bunch of fittings for different size screws. The tool is ordinarily useless and the last thing I'd use but the small 1 inch fittings were perfect to wedge in there. Just got it fit correctly and turned it with some pliers.

EDIT: Like the little guys in the bottom of this picture:

I think OEM is the best look. I just don't happen to think any of the various arrangements of OEM got it exactly right all at once

question for you all.. when tilted. does your weather strip on your moonroof driver side front fit smoothly/flush ?
because my driver side weatherstrip is squished up a little bit, as if the weatherstrip isnt alligned or something.. wierd.. dont think it affects anything but in the long run it might ware out the weather strip..

I can say my weatherstrip does not get squished. I just so happen to have my camera with me today and went out and took a picture for you to compare.

hmmm mine does.. at least you know what i mean though right?...
hmmmmm... im just trying to figure out why it would do that.. unless.. my moonroof was put back on not properly alligned.. but thats impossible because of the way its mounted... i'll just go out and buy weather strip softner or something.. or maybe my wind deflector is doing something funny to it..

the weather strip just seems close to the frame of the car than the passenger side... hmmm

You say it is only the driver side. To me it sounds like something is not aligned just right. Since now you know the process and it would go even quicker, I would loosen the Sunroof and see if there is any play at all and then retighten. A tiny shift could be all that's needed. I do not mean redo they whole process, just loosen the eight 10mm bolts that hold the roof to the brackets and try to shift. For the 10 minutes it would take it may be worth a try...either that or your Sunroof opening is not square. J/K. Good luck.
