    I suggest you replace it!!! You can try locking washers between the plastic holder and the bolt/screw to hold the sail panel.

    If you are replacing the sail panels, I believe you will have to remove the rear seats and rear deck. I have a pair of replacements sitting in a box that I need to install lol.

    If you search for "sail panels" (use the Google search on this site to get better results, rather than the forum's search function) you'll find this is a common problem and plenty of folks have fixed it themselves.

    And there are plenty of other threads about it as well.

    Sure you can. The dealership will be perfectly happy to fix a car that's not under warranty. You'll have to pay for it, of course, but that doesn't mean you can't do it.
