Hope this helps.

1. Briefly touch button to open sun roof. Sun roof should be lowered at back by about .080" (2 mm). See Fig. 2 . Slowly slide floating roof liner back. Close sun roof.
CAUTION: Sun roof cannot now be moved in open direction.


2. Remove 3 exposed screws and nuts on rear underside of sun roof. See Fig. 7 . Remove left and right screws in 2 front corners of sun roof. Raise sun roof at back until left and right shims can be lifted out of sun roof retaining pin. Lift out sun roof and place on a clean surface.

you can't after the cartridge has been removed.

you will need to plug it back in for power, put it into tilt mode, then slide the headliner back.. once back you can unlatch it. you will need to move it to get to the bolts to remove the sunroof panel itself.
