Hey all with the panoramic sunroof. Are you also suffering with this first world problem? Here in Vegas it's already hit 90-degrees and sunny so I like to keep the rear roof shade closed. But when braking hard, it will slide open part way. Since it is manually operated I can't close it again until I park the car and get in the back. Anyone else notice this happening?

My never slides open. Make sure you are closing it correctly.

We have mostly gray sky here so mine is always open..so I don't know if mine slides open or not,,,,.but if Alfa would make it move with a button I'd be happy.

You learn something every day - I didn't even know it had a sunshade until your post made me go out and look. i did not see or feel any obvious clips but there is a slight detent when it closes.

It may not be elegant, but I might try wedging a piece of foam rubber under the rear lip to add a little friction... or between the shade and the glass.

The other option might be a sawed-off broom handle to push it closed from the seat (hey, if it was good enough for Chuck Yeager...).

LOL! Yeah, I hear it make the click sound, although I know it doesn't "lock" into place. I have leaned the driver's seat all the way back to open it before, so I guess I could do the same to close it.

That, or strop driving it like it's an Alfa, then I wouldn't need to brake hard on occasion. Um, nope! That's not the answer!!
