That plastic piece is supposed to come?
If you mean the front plastic floppy piece that's exposed when you open the sunroof, yes - it's spring-loaded and pops up about 1.5" as the glass slides back - it's the air deflector.

Wow mines never done that I always thought it was supposed to..... When you say pop up does it come up above the paint or stay right at level?

At least an inch above the roof line. There are spring fingers by the pivot points. Think of partially lifting a suitcase handle......

Open the sunroof and fool with the deflector......... You will be able to lift it quite a bit.

There is a procedure in either the GM service manual or Alldatadiy for removing the sunroof air deflector without using tools. Basically you open the sunroof fully. Hold down the right front curve of the deflector, lift and push the left deflector leg towrd the right, unsnap it from the mechanism. Lift the deflector vertical and unhook it from the slider. Reverse to install, finally snapping the left pivot back into the mechanism.

Thanks for all the comments but it's not what I wanted to know. I wanted to know if anyone has ever installed this on their vehicle, and if so, can you please provide a pic. Thanks.

Never thought about sticking one on ......... It looks tacky. Just like the link picture.

Your seemingly "simple" questions will inevitably take a few detours - many Seville owners here ........ and they all like to play with their cars. A member asked a sunroof question, I answered it.

I asked a question. You took the thread in a different direction. I wasn't asking for opinions. I asked if anyone has installed it. Period. You don't need to chime in on every topic.

That's your prerogative. Again I wasn't asking for opinions. I was asking if anyone has installed one. Thanks.

MOST threads on MOST forums go at least a little bit off topic. Get over it.

The extra posts aren't keeping you from getting an answer. Actually, they're keeping this thread closer to the top of the page.

If someone sees this thread, and has a pic, they'll post it.

unlike Sub - or Cadi509 -
I recognize that you are NOT interested in ANYONE'S opinion -
so I WON"T say they are ugly - or tacky - even though I think they are -

here is a pic of what it looks like - installed on a car -

Honestly who would want to put a piece of plastic on there car that makes it look ugly? Never have i put one on any of my family's cars that had sunroofs because of the sheer fact it looks stupid. And for giving problems to the guys is really screwed up yes Submariner409 and i have had our differences but hes always there to help people, all of em are. So next time you have a question they will look away and you wont get a informative reply back from anyone.

With replies like that good luck getting answers
I merely stated that I was looking to find someone who had it installed and had a pic. I didn't ask for opinions, thoughts, feelings, emotions, nothing. Pure and simple - do you have it? If so, please post a pic. E-Z! :)

You sure are testy. I've never met a more uptight online community than this one.
