Unhappy Cave In!

Yesterday I was driving to work when the headliner in the rear of my Baja completely caved in. The three plastic pegs above the rear window blew out and the liner just pushed down. I stopped the car pushed the liner back up and put the pegs back in. Then about 10 miles down the road... bang! It happened again. After some investigating it turns out that this phenomenon is occurring when the moon roof is open. It looks like air is getting caught inbetween the ceiling and the headliner. I guess I'll being going to the dealer on Monday for a new headliner... and a moon roof deflector it keep the air up and out. How hard is it to put the moon roof deflector in? If anyone has heard of this being a problem let me know!

If it's anything like the moon roof defelctor on the VW Beetle, it's a piece of cake.

Its not difficult at all. We had a thread or two on this awhile back. Just do a search.

If you have someone that can help, have them hold it down against the roof, if not, use a clamp on one end while you hold down the other.

It took me about 10mins if that.

depends on the one you buy i think... my dad has an altima at his work with one that appears to be screwed on... but you may be able to buy ones that just use adheisive(sp?)

the OEM one gets screwed on, no drilling required. It has a place that it hooks into and you screw it down tight. I watched my dealier ship install mine. I was glad they did it myself. It was a bit tricker than I wanted to do. but using a clamp on one side while doing the other should work fine.

the VW one has a couple "hooks" that clamp onto the inner frame of the moonroof itself... you just line it up, hook the clamps and tighten them down.

The hardest part was that the gasket came detatched and I had to slide it on to the plexi. It wasn't tough, but it was tedious.
