    do you mean there is rust around the sun roof outside? does it cause a leak or just surface rust ?

    Hi Guys,

    So I was just parked waiting round in the car, playing with the sun roof, half open or 3/4 open etc....(It was a nice sunny day)
    And i was looking at the sunroof, mainly the underside of it, on the inside, by the rubber and i noticed what looked like rust.... so i had a closer look and bingo....a couple of patches , oddly on the centre front and the centre rear. and then some other bits elsewhere on the inside.... also noted that some little nuts up inside are looking a little bit rusty.

    I got the car from a Honda dealership about 2 months ago. Through a friend whos dad works at a Honda dealership, so got a good price etc... and also and as soon as it hit the yard. Possible why the sun roof was missed, arrived on the yard on a Tuesday, got it on Thursday, in between that time i had overnight on the Tuesday night. Im told that the cars get a good check over before being put on the yard, specially if they have known issues. In all the haste of the purchase etc possible wasnt checked over like normal. Anyway I've been told it will be under warranty and replaced.

    Pictures below, looking up at the rust.

    Great car though.

    Hey and welcome mate, yup you got the dreaded rust on the sunroof seal and frame. Is your Accord made in Thailand or Japan?

    I am sure NZ Honda will honour a gesture of goodwill for you as all our 8th Generation will and have suffered the rust lot on the sunroofs.

    Hmm , im assuming made in Japan.... but .. how do I find out where it was made.
    Its basically a NZDM one.
