Sunshade stuck

Post by Trig551 » Mon May 20, 2019 4:58 am

Good morning! This is my first post, so go easy on me haha. I have a 2001 V70 T5. I retracted the sunroof and the shade got wedged up with the glass and now is stuck open. Can someone suggest the best way to fix this so I can get my sunroof closed? Thank you!!

Is it just the shade that’s stuck open or the glass also? If the glass is shut with the shade stuck open then would it help to open the rear edge of the glass up into the vent position?

It's been said there is no need to drill, there are more screws to undo the top metal plate (not sure if it would affect the sunroof alignment). I went with drilling approach, fairly easy

Perfect moment to also clean the sunroof drain holes!
