Sorry, this was done as a reply to a thread in the parts numbers section. My error. Should have posted my question here and not there. Begging forgiveness....

the question:

variation on the sunroof theme.... possibly a unique situation.

I noticed when I bought it that my 2003 did not have a flimsy plastic sunroof skirt on the left side. It did have one on the right side. this is the thin plastic film piece that sort of hides the sunroof guts when the top is tilted open at the back. I never thought too much about it.

So today I noticed on the left side that there was a funny looking piece of plastic stuck up there. I touched it and it was loose. I pulled it and viola! the left side flimsy plastic piece sort of pulled out from the interior of the sunroof. I felt around a little, thought I'd found how it attached, just pressed it back in place and now I have those flimsy piece in uniform position on each side. It does make the sunroof look a little better from the inside when the back is tilted open, and I wonder if they somehow work to smooth out airflow as well. I haven't driven too far or too fast so I haven't noticed a difference yet.

I won't be surprised if there are no replies to this post. Is this a unique situation, or has anyone "been there, done that, got the t-shirt"?

Your situation is not unique, this things comes off more than often.

R, thanks for letting me know I'm not alone.

It there a fix for this problem? Perhaps a dab or two of a strong glue on the plastic rail attached to the film?

Thanks, jl

There is no real fix, replacing is the best option but you can try with some glue and look what it gives in the future.
