Vehicle insurance policies usually don’t cover sunroofs as a single item. The auto glass on a automobile is normally insured by the comprehensive coverage of the insurance policy. Comprehensive coverage includes the sunroof, side windows, and windshield. Even though mirrors and headlights are made from glass, your insurance policy does not include damage to them.
It doesn’t matter what caused the claim. Claims for damaged glass are always filed under your comprehensive coverage, which only covers glass. Collision coverage covers the vehicle’s body damage. If the sunroof and the car were damaged in a accident, the automobile would be covered under collision coverage, while the sunroof would be covered under comprehensive coverage.
