Cougar Sunroof into a Thunderbird?

For you guys that have parted out some cars lately... any idea if a sunroof assembly from a 1996 Cougar will swap into a 1996 Thunderbird, both with factory installed sunroofs? I know the headliners are different due to the longer roof of the Cougar, but I can't recall if they changed the sunroof assembly due to that.

Cool! Just to clarify, I'm talking about the entire assembly, not just the glass. I was thinking it was the same up to 1996. Thanks for the help!

There really isn't all that much up in that roof if ya look. Just the motor and two cables, the glass, and that's about it.

Thomas, looking at the parts catalogue, the 1996 Cougar pieces are all T-Bird numbers (mostly 1989), so it should be no problem other than the headliner you already mentioned.


cheers
