I take it that you want to remove the whole sunroof?

Best to have sunroof closed.

1) Remove hood lining.

2) Remove mounting brackets/supports.

3) Disconnect wiring.

This is where you will need help if you don't want to damage the roof of the car.

4) Get a long snapblade or flexable knife and start slicing between the casset and the roof. This will cut through the adhesive/silicon holding the casset to the roof. You need help to support it as you cut around and it starts to drop.
