Not sure why you wanna pull the sunroof lid/pad off to adjust the motor...
You pull the sunroof motor pannel off & you have to line up the microswitches on the sunroof motor it'self.
But, in order to remove the pad you possiosion the roof @ tilt. Then from the outside of the car you pull the sunroof pad down. I use a piece of bad fuel or brake hard line & bend a "J" @ the end & release the two springs that tension the pad.
But be carefull cause the springs are under an extream amount of tension.
