Front Sunroof Shade problem

So I have a 2008 Acadia with the dual moon roofs while trying to get the front sunshade to locked into the open position I pulled to hard and the roller in the back came undone. I was able to get it back on where it goes but now it does not roll back by itself. I'm guessing it is like the window shades in my house and has to be wound up/pre loaded before it is put back into place. Anyone out there have or experience the same thing? any help would be greatly appreciated!

Steve

Re: Front Sunroof Shade problem

Awesome, Thanks!

Do you have a guess as to what it would cost me to have this done if I take it to the dealer?

Thanks again,

Steve

The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.
<A href="http://gsi.xw.gm.com/newsi/showDoc.do?docSyskey=2012177&from=sm#N65563">Condition/Concern:


The front sunshade will not retract or appears to sags. This may be caused by no spring tension on the sunshade roller. If the sunshade spring tension has released, it will be necessary to rewind it.
<A href="http://gsi.xw.gm.com/newsi/showDoc.do?docSyskey=2012177&from=sm#N65572">Recommendation/Instructions:


To rewind the sunshade spring, turn the sunshade roller end slot 20 times in the counterclockwise direction.


The shaft in the picture above has been pulled out to show the hole in the shaft.
On one end of the sunshade roller, there is a small hole for a locking pin (see picture above). After turning the sunshade roller end slot 20 times, it will be necessary to install a small pin through the sunshade roller and into the shaft to hold the spring tension on the sunshade during the installation process. After the sunshade is installed in the vehicle, remove the locking pin.
Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.
GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.

If they make you pay, I would guess .5hrs to 1.0hrs, whatever the dealers labor rate is.

You can install drain tube extension assemblies, and ensure that the water drains properly. Also you might be able to clear out by buying a can of compressed air and squirting it in the drain hole.

Re: Front Sunroof Shade problem

Thanks for the info, what an easy fix, took all of 15 min to get working properly. All you need is a pair of pliers & a paper clip.

Thanks again!
