I presume you're speaking about the shade...? If so, this sounds like what mine is doing as well.

It really makes a sharp 'popping' noise sometimes, like something was binding then suddenly let go, when mine separates in the middle to vent. But the thing just keeps working like it should; the noise sounds pretty awful most times, like something snapped or broke -- but it continues to function properly...

I wish there was an easy way to watch what's going on with the shade mechanism during this operation; it's pretty tough to see down behind those heavily-tinted roof panels when they're closed...
