The front sunroof/moonroof sunshade clip broke on my 2019 GMC Acadia SLT. This is the small plastic clip attached to the sunroof frame, not the one attached to the sunshade itself.

This seems like an easy enough part to install, but I've been unable to find a replacement part for it anywhere.

I really wish that GMC molded part numbers into these clips.

Does anyone have any idea what this part number is or where to find one?

GM on-line parts lists only show the complete sunroof frame assembly. That could be fixed by the dealer's service center if the vehicle is still covered by new car warranty.

Thanks for the reply Speleos, that's what I was finding too. I suppose I could take my vehicle in, it is under warranty, but that is always such a pain. Honestly, I'd be taking my vehicle in, likely for an entire day, only to have them replace a plastic part with two metal inserts that likely cost GM a dollar to manufacture. I'd be happy to pay a few bucks just to order the part myself and reinstall it in 30 seconds.

I guess you do all your service work yourself, eh? Why don't you just drop in to any GM dealer's parts department and ask them if they can find/order the part for you? Their parts catalogs are a heckuva lot more comprehensive than the BS ones online.

I think that will be my next step. My local GM dealership is a frustrating one to deal with, big reason why I'm hoping to find the part on my own. Who knows, maybe they will be helpful for a change.

Same question, why not just have this repaired by the dealer you purchased from? Or if you moved, whoever is close by?

You likely have other choices of GM dealerships in your area. It doesn't have to be a GMC dealer. I've been to GMC, Chervrolet, and Cadillac dealerships since my selling dealer was closed shortly after I purchased my Acadia. The Chevy and Caddy dealers didn't handle GMC, but did warranty work when they could.

Don't necessarily want to make this discussion turn into a focus on issues with my local dealership. I am on my third Acadia, each one bought from a different dealership, with varying levels of customer support, some great, some not so great. Every experience I've had with this local dealership has been very poor.

As for the clip, just thought this should be a quick $5-10 part that I could install myself. The clip broke relatively easy. While my vehicle in under warranty and should be fixed for free, it will likely happen again to me, or others and may not be under warranty. Thought I could find a replacement online, but looks like I'll be heading in to the dealership.

So you are saying your dealer is not frustrating?

My dealer replaced mine under warranty. I fixed the rear sunroof latch that always breaks for $2, I'll post the DIY youtube video soon. It's shocking how cheaply designed some of these high stress high wear parts are.

I so agree with you regarding dealerships. Maybe go to another Chevy dealer and walk up to the parts counter. Just a thought.

On my 2019 Denali the rear shade latch broke. The black rectangle latch part, that was riveted to the frame came apart. They riveted the piece and the connection failed. What I did was, after removing the two rivets I used black trim screws (with collars) to secure the piece. Lots better repair then having to wait while they order the part then have them rivet it again and wonder if it will hold.

My 2017 is not under warranty, the part was broken when I purchased the vehicle. Dealer told me I'd have to replace the entire sunroof for the tiny broken plastic piece. Please post video.
