Default not bonneville related but...

The sunroof in my 94 grand prix is leaking and i need to replace the gasket. Thing is I'm not entirely sure how to get it off. I've read about the bonneville'* having 3 screws on each side to remove, looks easy. But it looks like the Grand Prix has 3 bolts on each side that hold on the sunroof, but I dont know how to get to the one farthest forward. Any help on how to get this thing off would be appreciated.

Thanks

Umm..are you sure it is the gasket that is causing the leak? I f your car is like our cars, it is usually the drains that carry water from the four corners of the sunroof bay that get plugged up and allow water to overflow into the interior. Unless you know for sure that the gasket is letting in way more water than normal, I would check the drains first. If you have access to compressed air, you can try to blow 'em out.

All of the drains are clear and working fine. The car has a seamed gasket, and the rubber is starting to pull away from the glass at the seam. Looks like it'* letting in a lot of water. I used some sealant to bandaid it for now, but the gasket needs to be replaced soon.
