re: 5000 sunroof blues
My 9/85 (86) 5000CS Turbo just suffered the same mishap with a broken
lifting bracket for the sunroof. I was quoted around $55 by the dealer for
each bracket and my car requires that both brackets be replaced. The labor
must not be too much if they will do the whole thing for $165.
Does anyone have any other outlet for the sunroof parts?
