Tips to Protect Your Car’s Sunroof


A sunroof or skylight is a great way to add natural light, ventilation and a sense of spaciousness to your car. However, like any other component of your vehicle, it requires care and maintenance to function properly and last a long time.

Here are some tips for protecting your car’s sunroof:

  1. Regular cleaning:

Exterior: Wash the sunroof with mild soap and water to remove dirt, dust and birds.
Interior: Wipe the inside of the sunroof with a damp cloth to remove dust and dirt.
Rails: Lubricate the sunroof rails with a silicone-based lubricant to ensure smooth movement.

  1. Avoid prolonged sun exposure:

Prolonged exposure to the sun can damage the sunroof seal and cause the interior to discolor.
When possible, park your car in the shade or use a sunscreen for the sunroof.

  1. Open and close the sunroof carefully:

Avoid opening and closing the sunroof abruptly, as this can damage the mechanism.
Make sure the sunroof is fully closed and secured before washing the car or driving through a car wash.

  1. Check the drainage of the sunroof:

The sunroof has a drain to prevent water from accumulating inside.
Clean the drain periodically to make sure it is not clogged.

  1. Regular inspections:

Take your car to a specialist garage for a regular inspection of the sunroof.
This will help identify and fix any potential problems before they become serious.

  1. Troubleshoot problems immediately:

If you notice any problems with the sunroof, such as leaks, unusual noises or difficulty opening or closing, take it to a specialist workshop immediately.
Do not attempt to repair the sunroof yourself, as this could cause further damage.
By following these simple tips, you can protect your car’s sunroof and enjoy its benefits for many years to come.
