  1. Open/Close: Slide and release the switch rearward to express open the sunroof. Slide the switch forward or rearward to stop movement.

    The sunshade opens automatically with the sunroof or can be manually operated. The sunshade cannot be closed with the sunroof open.

    Slide and hold the switch forward to close the sunroof.

    The sunshade must be closed manually.

  2. Vent Open/Close: Press and hold the switch to vent the sunroof. Pull and hold the switch to close it. The sunshade must be manually operated when the sunroof is in the vent position.


Dirt and debris may collect on the sunroof seal or in the track. This could cause an issue with sunroof operation or noise. It could also plug the water drainage system.

Periodically open the sunroof and remove any obstacles or loose debris. Wipe the sunroof seal and roof sealing area using a clean cloth, mild soap, and water. Do not remove grease from the sunroof.

If water is seen dripping into the water drainage system, that is normal.

Chevrolet Captiva's roof is designed to provide durability, safety, and functionality. It forms a critical part of the vehicle's structure, contributing to overall rigidity and protection for occupants.

Captiva may feature different roof options depending on the model and trim level. Some models come with a standard solid roof, while others offer a sunroof or panoramic sunroof. The sunroof enhances the driving experience by allowing natural light and fresh air into the cabin, and it can be tilted or fully opened using electric controls.

Proper maintenance of the roof is essential. Regularly inspect the roof for any signs of damage, such as dents, rust, or scratches, which could compromise its integrity. If your Captiva has a sunroof, ensure that the seals and drains are clean and functioning correctly to prevent water leaks into the cabin.

The roof can support roof racks or carriers, making it versatile for transporting items like bicycles, luggage, or sporting equipment. Always follow the manufacturer's guidelines for weight limits and proper installation to avoid damage and ensure safety.

Captiva's roof combines practicality and style, enhancing the vehicle's usability while maintaining robust protection for its passengers.
