Sunroof Shade Clip DIY

Like many others, I've had problems with the sunroof shade on my 330. It was not sliding properly and was binding up when I operated the sunroof. There are four "clips" that attach the shade to the slider mechanism that are notoriously poorly designed. It doesn't take much to break them.

I put together a quick Sunroof Clip DIY (with pictures) describing how to replace these clips.

When I did this repair I found that none of my clips had actually broken. In my case, one of the clips on the right side, had popped out of the slot in the sliding member and it was causing the shade to bind up when the sunroof was opened/closed.

Now that I've had it apart, I'm certain that I'd be able to replace them if/when my clips break.
