    lol - recalling a 9 year old car - that'd have to be a record oldest recall in history!

    Still, good on them I spose...

    had mine done last week, i would recommend the recall to anyone, you get a new glass panel and seal 8) and the clips most importantly

    Just an FYI. I had my sunrood sorted the other weekend and it's great.

    The main issue I was having with wind noise is completely gone.

    Just got mine fixed today but I've not very pleased with the actual glass they used.
    The glass now sits about 2 or 3 mm above the actual seal that goes around the glass.
    I rang them back, as I didn't notice it when I picked up the car, but they said that's how the new ones are to help reduce wind noise.
    Are any of yours the same now?
    I can get a picture if needed

    Yeah... the new glass is a different design. It does reduce wind noisde that this was the main issue with mine and it's resolved.

    Hey guys, I got a 2000 VT Calais international with a sunroof and the other day I was driving and the glass popped right off it! : |
    I didn't think this recall would count but it does so I guess if you have a VT or even a older model commodore still go check it out, my glass is being replaced free of charge monday.

    The glass can be adjusted down if it's not sitting flush. I adjusted mine after the local muppets left it sitting over 5mm to high at the back. I still get a big reduction on wind noise from the original, even after the adjustment.
