Automobile Sunroof Key Terms
An automobile sunroof lets air and light shine through the top of the car. Usually, it’s automated, which means you can open and close it simply by pressing a button. Some open all the way, gliding back to reveal a full open space, while others are pop-ups that just crank open a few inches. Sunroofs vary depending on the age and model of the car. You can tint your auto sunroof or leave it alone for full sun exposure. You can have a sunroof installed as an aftermarket accessory, and you can purchase retail parts for your sunroof from a dealer or mechanic. Kits are also available for sunroof additions, which come with all the hardware needed to install your own pop-up sunroof. For repair, head to a qualified mechanic or the dealership where you bought your truck or car. Auto body professionals can design and install a sunroof for you incorporating all the features you want. Call around for different rates before deciding on an auto sunroof provider.
