my sun roofs gone

Post by greendale65 » Mon Jun 30, 2014 8:06 pm

Ok. Don't laugh my sun roof came off while was in travel completely gone,
so now I'm after all those bits that held it on any helpers. [-o< [-o< [-o< ^^bx> 16v

Erm, is yours a factory fit sunroof? If so, how could it have come off, they fit flush to the roofline so any air will be pressing down on it, rather than lifting it up?

Yes factory fitted just flew off there was a fair bit of rust
on the frame but I don't think it was that.

How bizarre, hope nothing was following you. Try contacting Paul Handley who has access to a few scrappers which may yield you the parts you need.

There are a few types of 'factory fit' sunroof, i suspect this might be the simple Webasto 'pop up' roof which simply hinges at the front, rather than the more common full tilt and slide powered sunroof?

I have a spare tilt and slide sunroof glass somewhere, but i don't think this is what you need?
