I would like to remove roof with sunroof on a 2003 saturn

Customer Question

I would like to remove roof with sunroof on a 2003 saturn vue. I understand it is bolted on but the adhesive holding it down is stubborn to break loose. How would I cut through that adhesive? What type of tool would I use. Please only respond if you have done this on this vehicle.

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

I use a putty knife. I take a 2" wide putty knife, sharpen the edge with a grinder, tape it, tape all the way around the sunroof and use a rubber mallet to tap the putty knife between the sunroof and roof to basically cut it loose from the adhesive
