Sticking sunroof blind

Hi, I have just bought a fiat 500L for my wife and we are delighted with it The only niggle is that the sunroof roller blind gets stuck half way back resulting in the final half of the blind sagging down. I can see the roller when the roof is tilted u and wondered if their was a relatively easy DIY fix to repair it; assuming that it should open fully under tension thus preventing the sagging?

Hello again. I see that it is a 500L that you have and not a 500 so sorry for any confusion when if I suggested you re-post there.

This means then that it is new and will be under warranty as suggested above.

Personally I wouldn't attempt any DIY fix for fear of the dealer claiming you have caused the problem or made it worse by trying to rectify it. This most certainly is something that should be covered by the warranty unless it is something that has been cause by malicious or accidental damage.

Let them sort it!
