No, but I do know the 97's moonroof weather stripping won't work for you. The moonroof's used for the 97's are one year only. At least on the MN12 anyway, it may of been used on other fords like the late model Mark's as well???

Some years ago the manufacturer gave away the last of their stock for free to whoever called in first requesting them. Their OEM contract prevented them for selling the seals to anyone but Ford and Ford didn't want to purchase the remainder of their stock. Or something along those lines.... so they gave them away to any customers who called to order one.

I called Webasto at (800) 860-7866 just recently and ordered PN S1590-E-5010C-A which is the sunroof seal. I also ordered new lifter arms, PN S1289-W-3000A and S1289-W-3001A. The total was $45 and change.

I put them in this weekend. I pulled the glass which is just 6 screws (put it in the vent position to access them), removed the old seal and cleaned the metal frame real well. I used a silicone type glue on the new seal and put the glass with the new seal in the opening and let it sit for a while to apply pressure while the glue setup. I still have a little adjusting to do, but I think it needs to sit in the opening a bit for the rubber seal to compress a little as it is currently kinda tight and just barely opens and closes.

I got the info from this thread:

Re the seals availability, what I said above was specifically about the 97 seal. If Aaron just ordered one then they must still be available for the earlier moonroofs.

From what I recall the 97 seals had to be given away because ford wouldn't buy them and they technically couldn't sell them to anyone else...

As far as manuals go to www.fordcds.com and download the service literature for your model year. It has the moonroof service info in it.

You must have replied as I edited my post. I thought all the cd's were bit-torrent dl's but it seems they are serving them up again for easier dl'ing. so I deleted the bit-torrent comment from my post. Then I noticed he does call it a moonroof up until asking about manuals for the "sunroof" so I deleted that as well... lol

I'm not sure what to make of "ejection shoot..." that went right over my head???

well, I figured if you installed an ejection seat(like james bond), then you already have the opening....n/m....just tryin to be funny.

Tlpru;

Shoot me a PM with your mailing address. I will forward you a copy of the 96 Ford Service Cd for free.

Got too busy this weekend to reply to your PM - sorry.

No idea, but some people have had trouble getting them to download and open.

I don't see where tlpru said he downloaded it already.
