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?


To be honest I've never noticed anything like this on mine.

The motor that operates the shade also operates the wind deflector. I can only assume there is some sort of "feedback" (for lack of a better word) when motor operates the wind deflector.
