Webasto Recalling Aftermarket Sunroofs
The adhesive bond that keeps the glass and metal frame together in certain Hollandia 700, 600 and TVS 900 series non-factory installed sunroofs may allow the glass panel to completely debond from its frame. The recall affects 283,996 sunroofs in the U.S., with Webasto being prepared to fix the aftermarket products free of charge.
Webasto claims that the sunroofs affected by the recall can be distinguished visually, with the most recognizable components of the aftermaket sunroofs being the switches and the presence of a company’s logo on the sunshade handle.
• Hollandia 700 and 600 model: Consumers should look at the sunshade handle; if it says "Webasto" and the serial number is within the range of 6000000 to 6396298 it is covered under the safety recall.
• Hollandia TVS 900 models: These models have two tilt up glass panels with a black plastic bar crossing the glass side to side. If "Webasto" is embossed on the bar, it is also covered under this safety recall.
