Sunroof repaired!

Hello all,

I had my sunroof repaired due to the rear glass panel stuck open in the vent position. My dealer fixed the problem by replacing the sunroof cassette, part number 54137184906. The dealer reused the glass and the shade. I have one question, I haven't noticed this with my old unit, to replicate the problem: performing the following:

1. Retract the sun shade all the way until it is parked
2. Open the front glass
3. Right before the glass parks itself (when the airfoil fully raises) the shade moves slightly and makes a clunk noise. (shade is still parked)

Can anyone else replicate the shade movement in the parked position and the clunk?
