    Sunroof leaking inside

    My car has some sort of after market sunroof fitted but it started to leak inside


    Anyone know what i need to sort it?

    Failing that how hard would be to fit a standard vauxhall one?

    Does the roof just pop up, does it then also slide on top of the roof or maybe inside the roof?

    Forget about fitting a factory vauxhall roof....

    If it looks like the water is coming from between the glass and frame then the seal may be dirty a knackered. Generally these glasses come out altogether so you'll be able to give it a good clean up

    All the seals are different and sometimes need to be siliconed in place so i'd recomend getting it professionally fitted. The sunroof glass should have a name on it..... webasto, holiandia etc

    Any little bit of grit on the seal will cause water to leak in. Hopefully a clean should do it
