Sounds like my wife. She does nothing but complain when I open the sunshade or sunroof. I tell her all the time, why do we even live in California if she's not going to enjoy the sun. Might as well move to Seattle or someplace else.

Re: What is the cloth strip that pops up when the moonroof is open?

My roof is open most clear days over 55F. This time of year the deflector strains the cottonwood seeds from the air to the point that I need to clean the front of the deflector with a rag.

Possibly a tad too awesome.
But, once they dry, an old toothbrush seems to get them out of there.

I though it was a noise reducer.

The WJ didn't have this, and on the WK2, it interferes with visibility through the moonroof. Does it serve any critical purpose? Is there any reason it can't be removed?
Supposedly helps control wind and noise

No "supposedly"...it absolutely does. When I had a fix done for the pano-rattle a couple years ago, they accidentally left it off when they gave me back my vehicle. It was "painful" with the roof open and that shield missing. Fortunately, they still had it (or had one, as the case may be... ) and were able to pop it back on in a few minutes. Dramatic difference...
