The sun roof on a vehicle is an opening on the roof that allows for fresh air to enter the vehicle. It is like having a window on your roof. Sun roofs can be manually opened or electronically opened, depending on the type of vehicle you have. In addition, they come in many different shapes and sizes.

Benefits of Having a Sun Roof

The sun roof gives the vehicle a unique look and a touch of elegance. A sun roof also lets fresh air in without having the wind-blown directly in your face. Furthermore, while the sun roof is open, it is not as loud as having the windows down, allowing you to enjoy the fresh air without the noise. Sun roofs also allow ample sunlight to shine through. This allows you to feel the sun without the wind and noise of a convertible.

Common Sun Roof Problems

Having a leaky sun roof is a common issue that creates damage and a large mess inside of your vehicle. A leak could be due to a faulty sun roof seal. A mechanic can reseal the sun roof for you, so you can minimize the moisture damage in your vehicle. Another common problem is with the sun roof getting stuck open, closed, or halfway in between. If this happens, the vehicle needs to be taken to a mechanic so they can properly repair the problem. The window motor may have gone bad, so the mechanic can replace it if that is the case.

Sun Roof Maintenance

To prevent problems from happening, proper sun roof maintenance is very important. Keep the area around the sun roof clean, both inside and out. Wipe down the rubber seals with a mild soap, and a lint free cloth to keep debris from getting between the seal and the window. In addition, clean the tracks of the sun roof if it is power operated. Lubricating the inner lip of the sliding rails can also maintain the longevity of the sun roof.

The sun roof does not come standard on all vehicles, but it is a nice feature to have. It comes with many benefits and can last for the life of the car with proper maintenance. Sun roofs do come with some problems, so consult a professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic if you start to experience any leaks or slowness in the opening or closing of the sun roof.
