sounds like he's talking about a 450 model with an actual opening sunroof, not just the sunroof shade on 451s.

Do you mean sunROOF or sunSHADE?

If you mean sunSHADE, then check out the link.

If you mean sunROOF, then you're and your mechanic are an IDIOT!

The smart DOESN'T HAVE A MOVABLE SUNROOF!!! :eek:

OH, ok....so if he's got a 450, then I take it back. He and his mechanic are NOT idiots. Just smart technically challenged......
