Default Sunshade under the sunroof problem

My granddaughter pressed up on the rear corner of the retractable sunshade that hides the sunroof. Then a small white 1" long plastic piece fell out and now the 2 part sunshade is separated in the middle. Retractable sunshade now has difficulty opening and closing along with some awful noises. Any ideas how to get to the hidden side of the sunshade without causing more damage? TIA!

unfortunately, i believe you need to remove the entire headliner to access the sunshade. the two pieces on mine (front and rear) are somehow separated (the piece connecting the two came apart i think). thankfully, the front one still works with no issues but the back one is stuck hidden in the rear of the headliner. i have only found a few documents that detail the pieces in the headliner and how they are assembled in order to fix it again. i ended up getting the sunroof tinted extremely dark and now leave the sunshade open most of the time.

thanks, unfortunately I've come to the same conclusion re removing the headliner too. You have links or sources to get to those documents that detail the parts to assemble?

BostonJon, thanks! Looks like some helpful info in there. I'm going to have to study/ponder in depth. I found realeom barely useful due to insufficient detail. Did I miss something there?

no, you didnt miss anything. i should have been more specific. realoem is good if you need to track down a specific part number that you need to order.
