    Exploding Sunroof

    Anyone hear of the sunroof shattering without any impact? It happened to mine this weekend and scared the crap out of my wife. I have a 18 GT. Any ideas on the part number for the glass? The dealer wants $1500 to replace it.

    Dang! Sorry to hear. Yes, I have heard of this over on the Hellcat forum with guys asking about tinting the sunroof glass, which is a big no-no.

    Would tinting the sunroof cause it to explode?

    Yes - it retains too much heat and can lead to glass explosion. I suppose if you live in Seattle or similar where the sun is minimal, might be able to get away with it. I live in AZ and I asked my wrap/tint guy about it just for information, and he said they, and anyone that is wise, will not do it - not worth the risk to their business.

    this problem is not unique to dodge. happened to honda odyssey when I was on that forum. consensus was that there was pressure build up between sunroof and shade.

    Yes, “exploding” sunroofs is something that happens across all manufacturers. Check your insurance, it may be covered under the glass portion of your insurance.
