I have a 2000 and my sunroof is original but the tint is peeling on mine too. I don't know if its the "tint" that's peeling, but around the outside of the sunroof there is some pitting or something where that dark part is coming off of the glass. Wierd.

I have a 2000 gts out of warranty. Its factory installed, not aftermarket. I did a search at new celica, seems many people have this problem, there is even a tsb out on it. Apparently windex and waxing takes off the tint. I'm going to see if my 1source auto-warranty will cover it.

yeah but tsb's don't force the dealer to do anything do they? I mean...they basically just give the dealer a heads up on it. I just went over 36K miles frown ... so my bumper to bumper warranty won't cover it. How much is a new glass from the factory? anybody know?

the lowest price I have found is $220 +s/h from an online toyota dealer. usually you can print out the page and ask your local dealer to beat it or price match. I think the list price is $380
