Default Sunroof Removal - '98 TL

My '98 TL is mint, which is why I was so shocked when I was sitting in it
yesterday looking up with the roof open and notice signs of rust under the
rubber on the front edge of the sunroof / moonroof (whatever). Must be
moisture trapped under the rubber. Has anyone taken theirs out and to do a
rust repair or know where I can find instructions to do it.

Thanks in advance,
MZ

You can find instructions in a shop manual. I don't know where else
you could look.

I can't say for your specific model, but in general you open the
moonroof, tilt the glass up at the front and then remove the bolts
that hold the glass at the sides.

There are drain tubes that run down through the roof pillars which are
supposed to vent any water that leaks into that area. Make sure those
aren't plugged. That could be the cause of your rust.
