Hi guys,

the roof of my 2006 honda civic se i-vtec has cracked, badly. I have tried searching around for any information or replacements but cannot find any relevant information at all! I was wondering if anyone here has experienced this at all, have any ideas on how I might go about fixing this and any advice that you have on what you would do in my situation or would advise me to do.

thanks.

(cannot post images because I am a noob)

?!

Cracked entirely? No idea how you've managed that one!

Is it just the paint finish, or the roof itself?

More likely, if it is at / under the front roof seal - It's a very common known issue with the 8G Civic, and will commonly rust.

I assume you mean a glass roof ?

I seem to recall a post, years ago, that said that it's made of glass thicker than the window glass and is quite expensive.

Find one in a breakers and get Autoglass to fit it ?

Also, what's the small print around insurance companies and non windscreen glass.

This should keep you going .... https://www.civinfo.com/forum/general-discussion-8g/70515-crack-panoramic-roof.html

Which reckons £700 + £450 fitting

What on earth does "ibb [DOT] co/NtJM8nf" mean?
Even Google has not seen that one before.
Sorry dude, I cant post images becuase I need at least 5 posts.

If you replace the "[DOT]" with a "." and remove the spaces, its the picture of the cracks. ibb [DOT] co/NtJM8nf

So what I was wondering was if the roof can be replaced. I can't imagine it would be an easy thing to do but maybe I could find a garage that could do it, or just sell the car before it gets too worse. I'm just looking for advice.

Not that I know of. Started to notice the cracks a couple of months ago and has just got worse, came from nowhere. I assume water got under the roof somehow? Looking for some way to make it look better at least!

I agree.

Paint is wafer thin and that looks quite thick.

It needs taking back to metal and assess the damage.

It's probably caused by rust under the filler caused by bad preparation by Mickey Mouse.
Sounds a bit on the pricey side to get that fixed. A good body shop will be able to give you a better idea of what's what on it.

Drop the headlining inside the car and you'll soon find out.
I almost don't want to :crying:

I'll get in touch with some body shop guys and get them to take a look at it. I'll post an update when I know some more. Worst-case scenario, we get a good laugh out of such a shocking job.

thanks for your help guys
