Re: Sun roof glass shattered !

I have come across the same problem and not just on Renaults. A sudden change in temperature, or a large differential betwen inside and outside of the glass tends to create stresses the tempered glass. Last time I seen it was on a Fiat - the driver jumped out slammed the door and Whoosh! There have been cases of rear screens on some cars failing similarly.
