About Sunroof Electric Switch
There are two main types of power switch to operate an electric sunroof. The first of these is the simple 100 Roverelectric sunroof switch. The sunroof is generally operated by pressing this switch and holding it down until the sunroof is opened to the extent desired. An alternative, somewhat more sophisticated system, involves the employment of an electronic control module. This type of module enables rapid opening and closing. It may also activate automatic closing of the sunroof whenever the ignition is turned off. Whichever type of system is used, the ability to open and close a car’s sunroof at the flick of a switch is far preferable to the alternative of operating the sunroof manually.
If an electric sunroof ceases to operate it is likely to be due to faulty wiring from the switch or a defect in the 100 Roverelectric sunroof switch itself. Most auto-electrical accessory retailers provide replacement electric sunroof switches for most models. It may be necessary to employ an auto electrician to fit the replacement switch to ensure that it is wired in correctly. If the 100 Roverelectric sunroof switch does cease to function it will be necessary to close the sunroof manually to prevent possible weather damage and to keep the vehicle secure.
- During the 1960s, Rover was forced to cancel several promising car projects. That's because Rover became a corporate partner with Jaguar, and some of the projects they were working on were too similar! The Rover P8 was just one of the victims of this partnership and a prototype was never built.
- Rover worked with the BRM F1 team to make the aptly named Rover-BRM. It took a lap of honour in the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1963 as the first gas-driven prototype sports car.
- Corporate shenanigans changed the company a lot by the 70s, and Rover was owned by British Leyland.
- The Rover P8 has some really obvious inspirations. The front bumper is clearly a Pontiac and the side profile is eerily similar to the Opel Rekord. The plan was to keep the P8 shorter than their previous Rover 2000, but it ended up being longer.
- Honda and British Leyland decided to use the Rover name when they worked together on the range of planned cars to be released in the ‘80s. As a result, the Rover 200 replaced the Triumph Acclaim.
