may be getting

Post by runabout199 on Sun Sep 22, 2013 8:34 pm

i may be getting a 74 bug with a sun roof. the only issue i see with this car is the sun roof leaks. i know they all leak but does any one know of a place to have this fixed and a price. would need new headliner also. i would just like it to be factory and not gush water, surely there has to be a way to fix it without welding it or puting silicone in it
thanks all

I can fix it as long as most of the parts are there. Some are hard to find.

If you open it up, you should see some drain tubes in the front of the opening- make sure that they're not plugged up with leaves and debris- water gets past the felt seal around the steel panel, but is supposed to drain out the front and rear of the mechanism and down the pillars. If they're clogged, there's no where else for water to go but inside the interior

If it's missing parts the replacements are very expensive, and some parts they don't make new anymore! Good luck!

Parts may be a little high, but you will only have to buy them once. Properly adjusted and lubed they will work great for years. I wouldnt let a sunroof scare me away.

Bob (anybody remember that guy???) did a write up on the samba about taking apart a sunroof and fixing it. May be worth a read. http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=379367&highlight=sunroof
