Hi Guy n Girls,

If you already know how to remove it then skip, but for the ones that don't know like me here's a site I came across google-ing on how to remedy a leaking sunroof so thought it might be useful for those owners of leaking BC/BF's....

http://caverpilot.co...f-or-headliner/

When I get time off work I am definitely gonna get onto this as I hate rainy days and a car that likes to leak alot of water into the cabin, not a nice feeling Posted Image

Cheers and enjoy!!

P.S - Pictures included with every step (well sorta)!!

Good write-up! Just a small correction.... At the factory, the sunroof and headliner go in before the front and rear screens. Hence why getting either of those out with the screens in place is a bit of a mission!

Now that will come in handy, need to drop the sunroof out of the bd as starting to rust around the trim that holds the glass in underneath. Was going to do it this week till this rain decided to change the plan.
Project RS coming soon.

I tried getting one for mine from Subaru but they said you can only buy the glass complete with the seal for around $1200

Yea found the part number on partsouq after reading about it here, have ordered through a mate here in NZ as he thinks it will get here faster.

Will once it turns up i'll let you know if it's the right part, I ordered part #65441AA010 it was $50 or something delivered.

That would be really handy, especially if we can put common search queries with the numbers.

No. Although they appear to have the part in stock, unfortunately the seal only comes with the glass which is something like $700USD.

Either going to try find second hand, a rubber place and see if they have anything that fits or make one out of silicone.
