Wind deflector

  1. Check that the wind deflector (1) moves freely within the moonroof unit assembly while manually pressing down and releasing.

    If a malfunction is detected, remove the moonroof unit assembly and visually inspect. If damage is found, replace either wind deflector (1) or moonroof unit assembly as required. Refer to RF-63, "Removal and Installation" (WIND DEFLECTOR) or RF- 59, "Removal and Installation" (MOONROOF UNIT ASSEMBLY).


Wind deflector


NOTE: Before replacing a suspect part, make sure it is the source of noise being experienced.

  1.  Check link to determine if coating film has peeled off excessively enough that substrate is visible. Check also to determine if link is the source of noise. Replace as necessary.
  2.  Visually check to determine if a sufficient amount of grease has been applied to wire or rail groove. If not, add grease as required.
  3. Check wire for any damage or deterioration. If any damage is found, replace moonroof unit assembly.

    Refer to RF-59, "Removal and Installation"
