Aftermarket sunroof

Postby Gdubya35 » Thu Sep 18, 2008 3:11 am

Hello all,

I have an 04 G35 Sedan and when I purchased it no roof was in it. I talked with the dealer to also include a roof in the deal. So, I got the car and the roof was installed. Good job but, one issue. The person (roof installer) indicated that because it was not factory that there would be slight movement in the material. I thought huh? Make a long story short when I open my windows the headliner flutters. Looks horrible. Something about the factory roof and the sleeve (or something) and how the material bonds to it. Well, in this one it can't. It has also stretched the material and it droops. The warranty is over regarding the job. What can I do?

This is why you should never have an aftermarket sunroof installed, when it comes from the factory there is extra bracing in the roof for the sunroof aftermarket ones don't have that and eventually they leak too

Appreciate the reply. Trust me had I known I would not have mentioned a sunroof being thrown in for the price. The last time I had a roof (aftermarket) was in my'76 camaro. And that had no problems. It's the material interiors that I guess have the problems. That and the fact that it is an Infiniti. Just trying to see if I can somehow fix the situation.

Sometimes it's better to find an expert to do the job!
