How to Get Parts for a Sunroof


So you love your car, but your sunroof has seen better days and could use a little repair. Of course this has left you wondering how you're able to get parts for your old sunroof. Luckily it's easier than ever to get parts for your sunroof since there are multiple sources available to even those who are completely inexperienced with car repair.

  • Determine what brand and model sunroof you have. Unfortunately, parts for sunroofs are not standardized, so using just any part that resembles what you have on your sunroof may not be such a good idea. If your sunroof was installed by the factory, then your best bet is to contact your local dealership. However, if your sunroof is an after market model, then you can check your installation kit manual. If you don't have your manual, or you bought the car used and are unsure if it is a factory or after market model, look carefully around the sunroof glass and frame to find any clues.

  • Call your local sunroof installation shop if you are unsure of the name for the particular sunroof parts you need. Knowing the exact name for the part will be extremely helpful when trying to track down the part with the retailer you choose.

  • Find out if your particular sunroof is still under warranty. If so, simply take your car to the dealership to get the parts you need if you have a factory sunroof. If you have an after market sunroof you should call the manufacturer, who will then either ship you the parts for your sunroof, or they will give you a list of retailers that will honor your warranty.

  • Consider refurbished parts over new parts. Refurbished parts are generally salvaged from other vehicles and repaired and cleaned back to the standards of a new part. Refurbished parts are almost always less expensive than new sunroof parts, and can be ordered from just about any automotive shop that you can get new sunroof parts.

  • Shop online. All of these sites offer refurbished parts as well as new parts, and The Sunroof Doctor even offers live assistance if you need help locating the right parts.

  • Locate the correct parts for your sunroof, even if it is no longer manufactured, by searching for the parts at local junk or salvage yards. Get Used Parts has a state-of-the-art search engine that allows you to search for the correct parts at all your local registered junk yards without having to get your hands dirty by scouring the yards yourself.
