  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    55k bought used and clean car fax. I have started to notice a very slight popping-creaking noise from my roof. I have a panoramic sunroof and when the noise happens I can feel it with my hand on the crossbar of the roof. Any ideas?
  2. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hello Looking for part number or diy solution. The vehicle is a 2013 SX Optima. What is hAppening: once you open the cloth panel to see the sky there is a piece of a hard rubber on a edge bellow the glass roof that is starting to come off. Don't know the use of that rubber: insulation, weather...
  3. The Service Center
    I am not sure what to call it other than the roller blind for the sun roof. Anyway, the problem is that the cover or blind does not close all of the way. It stops about an inch short of closing. The sun roof itself closes tightly. I have cleaned the area thoroughly and applied silicone spray...

    2013 Optima ex Something hit the glass panel right in front of my sun roof and broke it. I've put off replacing it but under heavy rain here there was a leak pooling up in the dome lights. I have removed the rubber edge to the glass and it is sealed onto the body. I will have to get a...

    Yep. 20' SR Rigid just got mounted up. It's their new hyperspot with the driving pattern on the outsides. The '16 with the pano roof actually as a perfect channel to run wires. More on the install later...bed time...yes, I know it's 8:45PM :) It goes well with the setup I?m running. Which...

    Finally finished with the roof wrap. Just debating whether or not to leave as is or put back on the roof racks. Any other thoughts?
  7. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Just called my local dealer to schedule an appointment for an oil change and to look at a few minor issues under warranty. The guy mentioned there is an open service bulletin for the panoramic sunroof, but I haven't been able to find anything about it online. Searching some TSB websites with...

    I am looking to get a rack for two Kayak's. Has anybody found a place that has them?
  9. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    New to KIA Optima and I noticed every time I have my roof on tilt or open the climate system still blows out something depending on the temp outside... why is that and how to stop it?
  10. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hi guys, I have a roof spoiler from k5 store and for the second time it's coming loose in the corners and I'm afraid it can come loose all the way and damage the car or any car behind us and was wondering if someone has had the same thing happened? Fwiw I cleaned the glass real good with...

    Just figured I'd post a few pics of the roof spoiler I just installed so anyone contemplating an install on their 2016 would have an idea of how awesome it looks. Installation was about a half hour, maybe less. I don't know why the site made all the pictures sideways but they still get the...

    Came across this LED rear roof strip on eBay. Anyone installed this on their car yet? I like the concept, but don't know how if would look in person on our cars. It's got the look and style of the Audi A7 which I love. I prefer this slim look as opposed to the bulkier LED spoilers that are out...
  14. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I just noticed today that there's no weather stripping in between the panoramic roof and rear window. Never payed attention I guess. Can I see pics of yours . Just curious.
  15. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So my 2014 Optima panoramic seals started folding in when closing the moon roof. I found some older threads and ones started by me. I know there is a TSB that they put some silicone etc, they tried it with mine, but they still started folding. - what they did was remove my MOLDING, put the seal...

    I bought the spoiler from K5 Optima Store about two years ago. It fit perfectly, installed quickly with the 3M tape it came with, looks like new after two Wisconsin winters. I really like the look!
