Hello! 500L Sunroof Blind Messed up!

Hi all!
I had my used 500L Lounge Diesel for over a year now. Brought it from a car supermarket. It's the dual logic so not the best but the main reason I brought it was the sunroof. The cost to service from my local independent garage is so far so good. No major issues. Lots of space inside!

Unfortunately my sunroof blind has derailed! Don't know what to do as it's 4 yrs old. Any one has this issue before?

Looking forward to exchanging opinions on this forum.

Thanks Brandy! Unfortunately, every one there seems to have done through warranty. Was wondering how much it will costs to repair the blind! I don't see any one having same problem in the UK.

Hi I did wonder how robust the blind would be ours ok so far there is a thread on stilo section https://www.fiatforum.com/stilo/3006...nd-spring.html that sould give an idea what your up against.If you can not takle it youself I would avoid the stealers! as they will empty your bank account, might be worth trying a fiat or sunroof specialist.

Very handy! Will show my mechanic! Appreciate it! Yes dealer wanted 54 just to look at the blind!
