I have a 2015 SL AWD and when I went to open the moon roof the other day the sunshade got caught on something on the way back and now it doesn't roll back up. It still opens but the shade just hangs limp into the car and even hangs down a bit when in the closed position.

I've scowered this forum and google but I haven't been able to find anyone w/ a similar problem and/or solution. The only thing I have found was a notice about a recal on the same year Rogue's sunshade. So I was hoping someone here would have a way to re-align the sunshade vice having to take it back to the dealership.

I will post picks later when I have the chance.

I have the same issue with my 2015 A year out of warranty. All owners with a 3rd gen sunroof should be aware of this. A poorly designed take up roll has failed. The sunshade mechanism operates much like a roll up blind. The tension on the sunshade is maintained by a spring. When this spring breaks we have the resulting sagging sunshade. It has not fallen out of the tracks. Repairing this is not a small job. The entire headliner is removed and a $500+ sunshade and retract mechanism is replaced. The dealer quoted $1638. It would probably be best to have an auto upholstery/convertible replacement shop handle this. I had probably operated my sunroof ten times in four years.

I did like the previous generations two separate retractors better for looks. Maybe they were more durable too since they had half the travel.

I found the sunshade assembly for $300 at nissanpartsdeal.com p/n 91250-5AA1A. I would consider doing this myself but it looks like a big job and the curtain airbags are up there. Now on to an automotive upholstery shop. The other option is replacing this with a fixed panel using the existing sunshade fabric. However, at resale the buyer would likely want to include the full repair anyway.

I never use the sunroof but I open the shade on cloudy days. Knowing this I will keep the shade closed from now on. Thanks.

I guess the old adage of "use it or lose it" may apply.

Or it was just a manufacturing or assembly defect...

I haven't opened mine in many moons. I will take the car next week to the dealership for the ABS Actuator inspection. I will ask the Service Advisor to open the moon roof. I will report back.

Hello and Happy New Year:)

The service advisor at the Delray Nissan opened and closed the moon roof with no problem. Then, I opened and closed it. Again no problem.

At least, my car doesn't seem to have the reported issue at this point in time.
