    sunroof shade..broke

    well, I reach back to pull shade closed on sunroof...and just ketch a little bit of handle..and snap! handle breaks and fall out!!

    Dealer told me entire shade must be replaced, they dont see a part for just handle. does anyone know if they have to take entire roof liner off to replace? I told them to order the shade try and take handle out of new part and put in mine. I know if they take entire liner down it will never look rite again, that kind of a job is them climbing all around the inside of my car.....dont want that!

    I wonder if roids will void your warranty?

    I took a quick look at the service manual and it does appear they need to pull the headliner out to replace the shade. There is a warning that when pulling it out the front right door to be careful of the weather strip. Hope this helps.

    If your on steroids they will probably deny the warranty claim. The handle was not designed to handle all the extra power.

    Dean I have seen u. U think u can manuver in your car better than a tech? Plus they are saving a decent amount by having u do it, not paying the tech, and keeping the garage open to work on someone else. They won.

    I think Dean got pretty good service here. I had to have my headliner taken down, and you would be apalled at what has to come out to remove the headliner: Seats, A pillar covers, B-Pillar covers, C-Pillar covers, shift lever and boot and center console. Basically, they have to gut the interior.

    I'm fortunate enough to have a stellar tech who works on my V, and after he got done torquing everything back in place several of the rattles I had are gone, plus he fixed my sagging sail panels while he was back there. Not all techs will exhibit the care and precision he does though, so it's probably a good thing they aren't doing it.
    Rest in Peace, J.D. (aka Dirt_Cheap_Fleetwood)

    they did not get me it took less then 30 seconds last night to snap handle into shade, all I had to do was push 2 tabs and click, she was done.

    Maybe you need to get a titanium version so you dont have to worry about snapping it again.
