Lubricating Sun Shade?
This is actually on the E38 but the systems are basically the same as far as I know.
The shade went down and wouldn't come back up again. I can hear the relay for the motor when I press the switch, but no movement. The motor was not trying to run from what I could hear. After having the battery disconnected for a bit tracing down a current draw (I tried the sun shade again, and it popped up. Movement was a little jumpy, though.
So, I think some plastic is binding in bad spots and needs to be lubricated. I've left it in the up position so I can access it. Does anyone have instructions for where to lube the mechanisms, and is white lithium grease fine with these plastics?
