Slight tear in rubber around sunroof?

Post by spooler » Fri Apr 20, 2018 3:31 pm

Hey guys,

Upon delivery of my brand new RSV i noticed a slight tear in the rubber seal around the sunroof. The dealer wrote that it be recified under warranty on its next service.

Question I have is if its a relatively simple fix ie; simple rubber replacement? Or is it far more complex and wiser to just leave it as it is from factory.. If its a difficult fix that the dealer is likely to damage the sunroof somehow or affect the seal I would rather avoid it.

Thoughts ?

If it were my car I would leave it up to the dealer. If you try replacing it yourself and damage something, it won’t be covered under warranty then, so I wouldn’t risk it.

At least if the dealer damages something, they will have to fix it.
