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!
LOL, why did i put the cursor over the title to see a lil more on what the thread topic was, and i said to myself, "Who posted this I bet it was Dean" I look at the poster and low and behold, Dean, doesn't know his own strength.
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.
Dealer is great..... They ordered me the entire shade and gave it to me to take handle out and install myself!!! all under warrenty! yes, they actually got a $100 shade for me when all I needed was a 25cent handle...now I dont have to worry about them climbing all around my car
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.

Re: sunroof shade..broke
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.
