    I came up empty handed with that as well. I got lucky and found a wrecked 2004 Escalade in my now go to pick and pull yard that had a sunroof and I swiped the spring clips off that.

    I’m not your average detailer. I was trained by an old pro that was incredibly picky and anal about his detail work. And it always showed because his work was by far the best I’ve seen anywhere. And that’s what I follow. Any time wax is being applied on a detail I do headlights and tail lights. It’s just how it goes. And I’m even more anal about waxing them on my truck, since both have dark housings on my truck.

    That’s the plan. Then maybe I can offload them on someone on Craigslist haha. But that requires them to be off of my truck for a few days at the least. It wasn’t an option before I had the new setup because I can’t drive without headlights. Lol. And I can’t not have my truck in commission otherwise I can’t work. Now that they’re off I can take in between my hectic work schedule and get it done.

    Good to hear , I already knew you were the best but had to make sure lol. I was trained by an old timer too. I have yet to meet anyone that can compare.... to me. Just saying I am an elite detailer and I am the best ever :buffer:

    How did you get the clips out? Did you bring a battery, to open the sunroof?

    Nope. Not necessary. The sunroof has 4 T15 torq screws directly underneath the glass that bolt it to the arms that attach to the track pieces. You can access each of the 4 bolts when the shade is open. Remove the 4 bolts and the whole glass comes right up and out. It’s actually pretty easy. That will give you access to the track pieces and the air deflector.
