1990 190e sunroof cable and tube.
My sunroof messed up so I took the inside and outter top cover off. I cleaned the guides and sliders up.I found when looking in between the headliner and roof, the cable had jumped out of the tube. It was half looped laying up their. I pushed the motor button and the cable is in now inside the tube. I put the roof back together but still have the inside sunroof liner off.I can slide the roof by hand and I can move it back and forward so maybe it is ok. I can look inside back their and see the tube bolted up with 2 small bolts. I see on the rear sunroof cross bar 2 holes with threads for bolts. And at the end of the tube where it comes to the sunroof their is a small offset plate and one of the holes lines up with one of the threaded bolt holes but their was no bolt in it so the end of the tube was just hanging their.
I was opening the roof to slide it open ( back ) and went down a driveway and I hit the up ( tilt)while I still was opening it to go back , and the cable jumped. So do I just need a cable or do I need a tube also, or can I squeeze the tube closed some and just replace or try to see if cable will still work.
