Default Re: ARTICLE: Sunroofs. India-specific Use and Maintenance Tips

Excellent article! I have been trying to keep the sunroof in my car in good shape following all the Do's suggested in this article.

However, the slide function just would not work since Saturday on my car. I am unsure of why this has happened in the first place, as I drive my car alone 98% of the times and there is no reason why it should act up this way. The complete open/close function is still working fine though without a hitch.

I checked for all possible causes for foreign particles clogging the slide channels/pivots in vain. Handed over the car to the service station on Sunday for inspection. The service advisor(SA) called me back on Monday only to say that this is the first time he has received this kind of a complaint for sunroof and that neither he nor his technicians have any prior experience with fixing sunroofs. SA wants to test every component related to the sunroof circuitry tomorrow.

I am sure my knowledgeable friends out here on the forum can surely help me. I am all ears.

Mods, please merge this post with an appropriate thread if this is not the right place where it belongs.

Is there an aftermarket sunroof fitter in Delhi area ? I would like to fit one between the first and second row seats in my Bolero.

Nice write up !

Any tips or advice w.r.t cars that have a panoramic sunroof? Also what lubes to use for lubrication of the moving parts?
