air deflector arms - plastic retaining clips broken
Plastic piece which anchors the metal control arm of the sunroof deflector broke causing metal arm to bend as sunroof was closing. I removed the bent arm and held down the deflector by hand to get the sunroof closed. Replacement parts would have been over $200 but dealer offered to remove the deflector for free. The sunroof works almost as well without the deflector.
Mine also broke..After leaking water through the sunroof..
yes, had to be replaced
The Arm for Sunroof Wind Deflector just broke
Fell on my head while driving and scared me out of my mind, did not know what hit me!
