sunroof differences?

Post by ride_child » Wed Nov 22, 2017 11:16 pm

so i swapped a preface sedan sunroof pan into my postface wagon and theyre different. does anyone know if its going from pre to post face thats different or going from wagon to sedan thats different? i just need to know so i can get the right one to reseal and install. coincidentally, there will be a preface sedan sunroof pan available thats in good working order and is sealed tighter than as nuns b-hole with a bunch of silicone. thanks!

I don’t know about the differences, but I want that preface sedan pan when it becomes available!

Yes, it's definitely wagon vs sedan. It'll work mechanically, bolt in about 80%, and it'll squeak like a MF. But your sunroof will open and close ;-)

it will but the top of the sunroof pan doesnt reach the bottom of the roof, so it doesnt seal all the way!

It actually does. The pan itself is the same. The brackets spot welded are what Is different. Hen the squeaking.

I'm sure the pans are the same and the mounting tabs are different but as it stands it does not seal to the roof, there's about a quarter inch gap. I promise

Mr blub blubs, if you find a good condition wagon unit, I'll trade you straight up for my sealed sedan unit
