If under warranty, take it to the dealer..

Last night, I had a similar issue. Attempting to close it up while cold out (maybe -10C) without warming up, and it seems to have fallen off the track a bit. I am heating the car up now before going out to look again. Any updates?

What did the dealer say? I just bought this 2014 Overland Hemi at the end of December, it is out of warranty by now

Hi nmck,

The basic warranty is 3 years/36K miles from the vehicle in service date (ISD). Have you already exceeded 36K miles? If not, I would be happy to check the ISD and let you know if the basic warranty is still active. Just shoot a PM with your VIN if I can help.

Re: Dual Pane sunroof and sunshade questions

FYI Update: I heated the car up good, closed the sun shade, did my best to sort of push the excess material back into the track. There was still a slight buckle, but then I opened fully and have been riding around with the open pano since the issue on 3/23.

As I'm approaching my first oil change I figured I'd open it up to take a look before bringing it back to the dealer later this week. THANK GOD, the buckling is gone.

I assume this was related to either frost/ice somehow in the track that had accumulated or something similar. Remember, it was left in the VENT position as nightfall/cold fell, then without warming it up I closed the vent and then the sun shade before sleeping.

I think as a general rule I will in future try not to close the sunshade in cold temperatures without first heating the car up. I don't see any issues with opening the sunshade in cold, but perhaps that track is susceptible to just enough frost/ice build up somehow that can push the material out of the track?

Either way, disaster avoided. I still need to fight the dealer to complete the TSB for the pano panel rattle!
