Those metal bumpers are still there, the po just moved them to allow tilt. You can easily reverse this by moving them back. Follow the DIY

Sedans also have a rubber stopper in the track assembly that coupes don't have. He is going to need those rubber stoppers put back in as well for his sedan to go back to OEM. Trust me I had fits with my tilt on my sedan at first as I didn't know about those stoppers. They kept jamming the roof and it wouldn't tilt.

I skimmed through the thread before posting the last time and will be sure to go through everything more carefully before I attempt anything - thanks

Thanks - will be sure to review all of this as well as remember your offer to send out those stoppers. I got to check out from my side to see if they were removed.

Looking back at my earlier post I don't see that I was clear about it being the sedan, not the coupe.

Pain in the butt...

Easy Peasy mod.

I'm tilted in both of my Legends and love the extra feature. You will get used to the sound knowing the moon roof is closed. And if there is any doubt, just reach up there and feel to see if moon roof is flat against the roof.

Spoken like a true tilt modded Legend owner. My coupe is a little quieter (after a number of adjustments to get it to slide properly (required removing those metal "E" shaped shims) and so I don't always get it right by sound. So I do the hand thing a lot. As for the sedan I haven't been able to drive it for months so I'll have to relearn it again. However it being my first Legend (well more like first "child" since Nov 2000 ) its characteristics are in my DNA and things almost always immediately come back to me. Soon EEV, soon!

Ive done a few sedan tilt mods, and never encountered a problem, nor have i seen those stops. Maybe all the ones ive done have been early ka7s? Thanks for the reply im sure ill remember this when i do have a problem with one.

It is also possible those rubber stoppers had come out of the tracks of the Legends you worked on or even disintegrated over the years.
