    Glass doesn't rot. Do you mean the front o/s and n/s corners of the frame ? Replacing the glass will not stop any leaks.

    was it as easy as undoing the side bolts then just replacing the roof glass and redoing the bolts up ? also did it stop the leaks more importantly..

    Arctic2, Hi mate, I'm having the same issue with a leaky sunroof & rotten sunroof glass frame, and was wondering where you got your new glass from for the price you stated ... I can't find it any cheaper than £145!!:eek:

    I would need to check my invoice it as been that long, but I have a feeling I roughly paid about £140.00 mark never did get one for £123.00 as above
