Question X3 Sunroof Repair Kit?

Good evening.

I have a 2008 X3 E83 with the panoramic sunroof. The rear glass will tilt up with the front when opening, but won't go down unless I manually close it. From my understanding there is a plastic piece or cable that breaks to cause this.

Has anyone tackled repairing the sunroof cassette rather than replacing it? I see there are repair kits available but I'm not coming across very much instruction on disassembly. I'm trying to debate whether to tackle this job myself or just try to find a used/junkyard assembly to throw in instead.

Thank you!
