every 7th gen celica has the same sunroof ('00-'05).

and yes...they do have celicas in junkyards. most of the time it's because of a frontal wreck (engine damage) but this obviously does not affect the sunroof. thumbsup

you'd have to get hit extremely hard in the rear or sides for insurance companies to total out a celica..because they are still new enough that the $$ to fix a car is still less than what it's worth. obviously engine bay damage is a different story though.

not true... they switched from plastic to glass... i think 03 on has the glass sunroofs and 00-02 have the plastic ones.

mines peeling too. Heres what you do. Go get some adhesive stripper, and go over it real good. Then go get it tinted at a shop. or just leave it. The reason why they peel is because it has a tinting over it.

there may be a problem with the moon roof opening if you replace it with glass. because the motor on the '02 and previous year where designed to handle the weight of the lexan.. on the '03+ they also upgraded the motor as well to support the new glass moon roof

The people above who mention trying to fix it with tint don't realize there really isn't a way to use a solvent on lexan without clouding it. You won't be able to get the old junk off.

Why not look into getting the glass cut custom for you at a glass place? I bet it'd be cheaper. Also, if you do replace it, get the glass window from 03+ or you'll have the same problems. I don't see any scenerio where the old motor is so weak it couldn't hold a couple extra pounds.

Listen up every one, when you bought your new celi there was a sticker in your sunroof that said "do not clean with any window cleaner just soapy water". Window cleaner dries the tint and makes it peel off. Hope everyone knows.
