Hey all...

closed the moon roof in my 01 DTS last nite,...and heard a sickening cracking plastic noise....sigh.

re-opend ed her up and found the following. the black plastic bar that sits right at the very front of the moonroof, on the drivers side was in pieces, cracked and beyond repair.

so, I need to know, while the moonroof closed perfectly, what am I looking at, should it rain? ie will this leak? looks pefectly closed to me and open/closes fine...just that large black plastic bar that sort of popsup when the roof is open is now not working at least on the driver's side...

anyone know about this ? oh, and what'd it cost fo this new bar and is it 'user friendly' to replace?

?

How 'bout an STS sunroof.....?

The black plastic thingy is a sort of air dam designed to lower (??? HAH !!!) wind noise when the roof is open. It is not structural and can be removed entirely if it's broken. It uses 2 springs which flip it up and down as the window glass rides up and over it.

Replacement would be either dealer ($$$$) or junkyard. Maybe, just maybe, www.car-part.com

much thanks...I'll take it off and see then....as it's only plastic and looks pretty flimsy, should be relatively cheap to replace, eh?

oops....sorry, forgot it's a caddy....

Check out gmpartsdirect.com. I seen that part in the catalog. I've ordered parts for my yukon on there so they're legit.

being fixed as I write this...for $120 parts and installation....not a big cost "caddy-wise" but I guess it had to be done...

thanks lads...

Caddys RULE!
