    Hello all, would any one have or know any one that has a Ford Sierra Sapphire (1990) sunroof for sale. I have checked all the usual motoring for sale sites and even emailed wreckers in the UK but i cant seem to get an answer.
    the part im looking for is the specifically the metal frame that the glass is bonded to, mine is now totally rotten and lifting on 1 corner
    hope someone can help me please,
    Cheers, Mark

    Hello corks finest, yep, i have searched all the wreckers i used to frequent and even up to the north for Traynors.
    I did register with Ford Sierra Owners Club in the uk and have asked for help there, but alas to date, nothing

    Not ideal I know but these lads were great for me getting parts for my Sapphire Cosworth about 5 years ago...
    They might have info on where you'd find standard bits or pay the bit extra for a sunroof from a Cossy.
    I've a feeling most breakers wouldn't separate the sunroof for just that piece your looking for.

    Try these.
    Ford spares Wakefield West Yorkshire 01924 356051

    Or else try sierras r us ask for dale 0784 2703657 they are Lancashire.

    There is also a yard full of sierras near Huddersfield in the direction of holmfirth but I forget their names but the lad in sierras r us might know him if he can’t help you
    Hope that helps
    Had a k reg 2lr here but had to get rid of it when it fell apart.great old car though in her day.

    Hi guys, thanks for the info re the UK and yes i am positive there are plenty of scrapped sierras in the UK, but i live in Ireland and get any courier here to collect and bring 1 over if i did get it, they say they cant deliver glass and i have to be a registered company!
    So ideally i need to find one here, even if i have to drive to get it.
    yep, i too had an 83 1.6L hatch back, what i didn't do to keep her on the road! finally letting it go to the scrap yard due to rust, then i bought my current 90 sapphire in 2000

    You might be lucky if you keep eye out on done deal for a Sierra that’s fukd up diffin a slab somewhere and is only fit for breaking but the sierras are gone scarce as a hens tooth here.maybe if you knew someone traveling over to uk with a car or a truck they might collect parts for you if they were local to them and you had them sourced and paid for.

    I wonder would the boys breaking sierras in uk be able to ship parts to the ferry and send them over that way.you could collect in Dublin port if the ferry companies do that service.might be an option.surely if it was well wrapped it could travel

    Would a Ford Granada (86-92 model) sunroof fit?
    I know a guy who has several parked up.


  • Registered Users Posts: 32 ✭✭✭ SparkyCrk


    Hi guys, quick update, no news back from any wreckers or the ford owners club in the UK, nothing!
    I have also found out that there isn't even a new one in any ford dealer in Europe, so im getting kinda stuck!


  • Registered Users Posts: 32 ✭✭✭ SparkyCrk


    hi Silvera, i have rang fords, definitely the sierra & granada sunroofs have different part nos., so they cant answer that question, but i would think that since the granada is a physically bigger car, it would have a bigger/slightly different sunroof.

    Could it be restored?

    Like this...https://passionford.com/forum/ford-sierra-sapphire-rs500-cosworth/486628-ford-sierra-sapphire-factory-sunroof-resto.html

    There is a company in Wexford that might be able to fabricate something for you...

    hi guys, yes i did get in contact with the guy that has the rotten shell, sunroof is totally seized into the car so it wont come out without a fight and damage.
    Silvera: i spoke with an old school mechanic, he thinks the Granada one cud fit, maybe worth a try, would your mate sell the sunroof outta his Granada?
    I have also got onto sierras r us and as yet they haven't returned my call
