Default Sun Roof Sounding Crunchy! Parts-a-Flyin

Sunroof while slosing sounding awfully crunchy- so much so I've had a couple pieces of greasy plastic parts come fluttering down.
How long you think I've got before a major disaster? I've looked at it, but it looks like she'* just breaking some major stuff. I see a arm flexing over, had it stick a couple times (actually caught on a pin flexing inward)

Just curious if this sounds terribly familiar. btw- it'* not the front air deflector- that'* new already.

There'* a couple of plastic parts on the sun roof that are notorious for cracking/breaking. Remove those pieces when they break and you'll have better longevity. Depending on what actually broke is the big decider on how much time you have before you need to do any major overhaul. I had plastic rain down on me from mine over a year ago and so far so good.

Sounds good- I was kind of thinking that way myself- if it still works, there'* no problem. They always throw in a few extra parts anyway.

Peace!
