I too have just discovered some rust on the metal frame. I have treated it with Rust Stop as an interim solution but would also like someone to fix it properly. I am also I Cape Town. So if you find someone, please let me know.

Hi Guys,

For the others enquiring about rust in the sunroof.

I had the rust removed from my sunroof from a private Panelbeater in the Ottery area.
His name is Ching, his tel number 072 359 9161.
He did tell me I will eventually need to replace the frame.

He was extremely reasonable and from what I can see he has done a great job. The workmanship is very neat.
I have only used him this once but I was very impressed with him and his work.

I imported a complete radio which runs android 5.5 and it had the correct plugs and even works with the steering controls - very happy with it. Only cost 3.8k but it was not from Amayama. Based on the price it may make sense to buy the sunroof, but one has to be careful that we get the correct part. If you do decide to go ahead, please email me directly, maybe we can have two shipped at the same time. ? [email protected]

Good day

@Victorsables can you please if you don't mind post a photo of the radio that you installed and does it come with navigation or the make/model.

It seems the sunroof of the Pajero's is a major issue hence the subject that is recurring every now and then and the latest price is in the region of +- R26000.00.

Hi All

Just to say I'm keenly interested in this issue as I have a very leaky Sunroof and so far the only people who are prepared to consider the issue is Webasto who specialise in Sunroofs. The costs of replacement part from Mitsubishi was the same quoted previously, at approximately R18 000.

In the interim Webasto have sealed the leak for me so no more rain is getting in. I clearly can't use the Sunroof.

One option would be for a panel beater to remove the Sunroof and close it up? I'll continue to follow the topic.
