    Default 2001 V70 sunroof question

    Earlier this year I purchased a 2001 V70 T5 with 61k miles on it for my son who is a newly licensed driver. Mechanically this car is sound, but recently I had it iin the shop because the sunroof glass was rattling like crazy. Turns out that the glass is starting to separate from the metal frame and the recommended course of action by the service advisor was to reglue it. However a lot of the glass places I've talked to, said that the reglueing doesn't always hold/last and most times you just nedd to replace the sunroof - that's a rather expensive route that I'd like to avoid if possible. Does anyone have any experience with this type of issue and what was your solution? Thanks.
    Cheers, Gary

    There is a metal bar that is glued to the underside of the sunroof glass that commonly falls off and can create a loud rattle. I just take it (the loose bar) out and throw it away. (do it, you won't notice the difference)

    "the glass is starting to separate from the metal frame" - Earlier cars did that (glass sunroof 960's) and leaked water between the glass and the frame into the car - Have not seen the 99-08 s80,v70,s60 sunroof have that problem.

    Used glass sunroofs are readlily available, I've paid ~$150 for them in the past when a car has come in with a shattered one.

    Thanks! I was just looking online at used glass panels. That's definitely a much more palatable option than a new one. Appreciate the response.
