    YOU USED BRAKE CLEANER ON THE HEADLINER!!!!????

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pa's Spare Time says:

    What a miserable job to have to do, that is just impossible, there just is no way way to get that back together like new. You showed tremendous patience, and kudos for posting it.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Derek Marshall says:

    FANTASTIC JOB…. KUDOS FOR YOUR ATTENTION TO DETAIL.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Opal Wind says:

    Awesome!!

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bill smith says:

    You have a smart phone which takes photos. Good work anyway.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jay Atkin says:

    Maybe get the motor from the old unit and send that home with the customer. A “throw it on a shelf in the garage” spare part that may bring you a repeat customer if the motor does eventually go out. This Jag looks like the owner plans for a “till the wheels fall off” romance type existence.
    Great video!!
    Finally done!!
    Hate it when parts are delayed or whatever!
    🤠👍👍

    I have to hand it to you Ray, there is absolutely no way that I would have tackled that job . I would have just grabbed my cordless angle grinder and found somebody's unattended car and cut a patch out of their roof , allowing for about 2 inches bigger than the sun roof. Then I would have taken a full cartridge of sealant and applied a very liberal bead around the sunroof and then firmly pop riveted it down. Look mum , no leaks…This is just to illustrate how much I detest sunroofs. Cheers from Australia 🇦🇺

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Doucette says:

    Rain i sure hope you get a good tip from the owner..show him this video. I think this job would have had my O.C.D. driving me nuts..I'm alot like you..do the job perfect every time or not at all. That is why stress leave was invented for guys like you and me. Love your professionalism and your positive attitude..I never tire of your videos..watch at least 2 a day. They really relax me after a rough day at work. I appreciate your efforts.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matricks_ says:

    Aaaaaaaaaand now I want to watch Austin Powers. Thanks Ray!

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Burn Notice says:

    My sunroof did this. I just permanently sealed it shut. Still have a glass sunroof. Only stays closed. No problem.😁

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars IamLRRR says:

    What an end to the trilogy! Wonder how many jag-ewer mechanics twisted and turned watching this! Ray did a fantastic job (I’ll let the visor slide since the roof panel was reclothed)!

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sylvia Toney says:

    Thanks for your video. I have a sunroof in my Toyota Highlander and I never knew soo much came with the sunroof. Mine has lights and mirrors and God forbid, if I ever have to replace them. I would send my car to you, since you already have experienced the drama. 😀 Thanks again for your videos. I've learned soo much from watching and saving your videos. Have a Great Day as Always!!!

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Ventura says:

    Please use RainX! Applied correctly it works.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars c J says:

    In the U.K. the value of that car would not justify the cost of the job to replace the sunroof cassette. Would be interested to know the cost of this job in Florida?

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bobby wills says:

    That JB plastic glue, us pretty darn good.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars AaronAslanian says:

    A hot glue gun would work great for holding down that wire
    loom.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron Sloan says:

    That Jag has been a very tough project. Old car, hard to find parts and crispy old plastic trim buts that break. Great job Ray and once again your patience helps you to achieve a great result.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Quillin says:

    I hope you remembered to plug in the drain hoses!!!

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bloodybones63 says:

    Ray, I'm impressed by how you didn't get frustrated with the complicated repair & 'lazy out', or start taking shortcuts, just to be done with it. Seen 'mechanics' do that before.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charlotte Lynch says:

    I would have use a marker just outline where the wire's go

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim B says:

    You have the patience of a god. No way I wouldn’t have shredded that car thing to get pieces out much less putting replacement parts back.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Hebert says:

    What did you use to get the fingerprints and stuff off the headliner

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars R B says:

    Definitely looks like a two man job

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dewfall56 says:

    Anything from California is trash and overpriced, but they expect you to pay more because it came from somewhere near hollywood, the land of broken dreams and screwing over.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brennen Goude says:

    Does anything good ever come out of California? Haha

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Hall says:

    Satan invented sunroofs.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Bengston says:

    Not sure how much you made on that job but that's what they get for buying a Jag

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cherokee2005 says:

    Great job and awesome video!!!

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vw bus guy says:

    Ray you have broke me lol everything is Powering Down Now .!!!! My family is tired of me saying it

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rigell says:

    It blows me away just how much trim had to come off of that vehicle to replace that sunroof.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Judi H. says:

    How did you break thar sunvisor bracket? It's 13 year old plastic, that's how. Not really your fault, it would have happened anyway!

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DrRick says:

    I’m so happy we finally finished this one Ray!

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cherokee2005 says:

    It wasn't just any air it was California Air, possibly a little polluted… LOL

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! Jason Mobley says:

    Ray welcome to getting parts from ca. I deal with this all the time. I call for parts they tell me once thing it comes and they either give me a different part or it’s broken or beyond repair

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DrRick says:

    I need a Xanax after watching this!

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Pinckard says:

    sun roofs are from satan.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lance Corey says:

    A broken plastic tab on the sun visor. While you wait for eBay parts, try the JB Weld Plastic Bonder to fix it. It may be a handy fix in the future.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron Wilson says:

    Where did you source that LB weld product with the internal mixing probe? I can't find it anywhere. ("JB weld plastic high strength plastic bonder") Huh? Huh?

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Burns Brimhall says:

    I would say this takes great mechanic skills!

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars B61 Mack says:

    For your broken sun visor you had the glue to repair it with. 3M make a glue that's use to hold Corvettes together. It's called panel Bond it's tougher than plastic welding.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nelson Glass says:

    Sorry, not surprising for my state California… quality of service sucks…. Customer service is hard to find… sorry

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Trunk says:

    Jobs like that are always such a chore. And you can never seem to get things back together factory perfect.
    But were it me, I would have pulled the seats out. Gives you much more room to work and you might find a peanut.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mmmh2o5 says:

    You know the first one was fine. It never rains in Southern California.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Les Reeves says:

    Ray you should have followed your own advice & taken pictures of the harness layout before removing it.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars matt wickert says:

    Many years ago, my Nissan Maxima (1995 model, I think) the sun roof would not close and was stuck in the open position fully back. Dealer had to hand-crank it closed, but it did not seal all the way. Duct Tape was my temporary fix. Dealer quoted for a full sunroof replacement, saying it wasn't fixable. Found a part # for a rebuild kit for the track hardware. A few hours labor, and it worked good as new.
