    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.
