    Has anyone changed one of these panoramic sunroofs, is there a huge amount of work involved?

    Any advices appreciated..

    Is this not covered under the glass replacement part of your insurance policy?

    Thanks you for the reply’s…

    No unfortunately not, alleged the panoramic roof does not fall under the category ‘glass’

    On another note appears this glass is toughened and not laminated as I would have expected, as we all know laminated would stay intact’ mine imploded and showered myself and the interior with small crystals and shards of glass, I’ll not be having another car with a panoramic roof.
