Re: will 3dr clio sunroof fit a 5 door?

I have to be honest here, and say I don't know for sure, but since the roof is welded to the pillars (in where the rain channels are), I would say I'm fairly positive that the roof sections are the same, regardless of the number of doors on the car.

Manufacturers try to parts share as much as possible to keep costs down, some differences are unavoidable (doors from a 3 door & 5 door, for example), but wings/bonnet/tailgate & roof should all be the same.

A measuring tape will confirm this, compare the distance between the windscreen & leading edge of the sunroof, and the length & width of the sunroof panel itself.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
