Webasto is in the news again for another sunroof recall. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Hollandia 700, Hollandia 600 and Hollandia TVS 900 series sunroofs installed by Columbus Car Audio are being recalled. These recalls are the latest in a string of sunroof recalls for Webasto, dating back to August 2010.

"The adhesive bond between the glass and the metal frame can de-bond increasing the risk that the sunroof glass would separate from the vehicle," reads a report from the NHTSA. "Complete glass-to-frame de-bonding can develop gradually and may be evidenced by metal corrosion around the sunroof frame, wind noise, vibration visual bond separation and/or water leakage."

The latest recall applies to 333 vehicles that had sunroofs installed at Columbus Car Audio. Webasto is sending out notices to the owners of affected vehicles and will be offering to perform the sunroof repairs at their own expense.

According to reports from the NHTSA, the recall could affect more than 292,867 sunroofs sold as aftermarket equipment for a variety of passenger vehicles.

Columbus Car Audio has locations in both Columbus, Ohio, and Reynoldsburg, Ohio.
