Subaru Sunroof Repair

The sunroof is a panel that slides out of the way to expose a window in a Subaru’s roof. The window can then either tilt open or completely slide open, allowing the Subaru’s occupants to see outside and/or allow fresh air into the cabin from above.

The sunroof allows the window to be exposed or hidden as per the driver’s preference, so they can control sun exposure and decrease visibility into the Subaru, when required.

The term sunroof can also encapsulate the complete unit, including the glass, track assembly, motor, rails and cover panel.

With sunroofs the longer you leave a problem the more likely it will get worse unless it has failed altogether, then it’s just a hole in the roof that you can’t enjoy. If there is water leakage in a Subaru it could become a health issue. Depending on how bad the leak is, water can cause permanent damage to the interior of the Subaru

If the Subaru sunroof motor is not working properly or the tracks are not functioning properly then it will be a struggle to use it and you run the risk of it eventually getting stuck in the open position, then you will only be able to drive on blue sky days.

Most importantly, if you ever plan on selling the Subaru, it will be more difficult to sell with a non-functioning sunroof. No one wants to pay for a hole in the roof if they can’t enjoy it.

There are a few things that can go wrong with a Subaru sunroof. The price to repair a sunroof will generally range from the low to high hundreds. Which section of the hundreds depends on the issue, which Subaru make and model and what parts are required. If the sunroof needs to be removed from the Subaru it will be a higher cost due to the additional labour involved.
