    Back in March, I took my Desert Hawk in to get a warped MySky Panel fixed. They ended up replacing the whole front part of the MySky. All was good until last night. I was driving down the freeway and there was a loud bang like something hitting my roof. Only it wasn't anything hitting me, rather the front panel infront of the MySky coming off. Luckily no one behind me was hit by parts flying off my car. It looked like this piece was just glued on to the Jeep.

    Took it to Jeep service today and they said they had never seen anything like it. Ordered the part and will fix it for me. Will be interesting to see the fix and if it is simply glued on. There has to be something else holding this down I would think.

    Oh well, consider this a public service announcement and hopefully just a really weird one off situation.

    Those look like the same type of clips that hold the fender trim on the sides. Perhaps the little pocket on that trim piece came apart and allowed it to fly off? Glad no one was hurt.

    I had to get my entire My Sky roof replaced a few months back, dealership broke it while checking out the tracks the front piece slides on. I never had any issues with any of the trim pieces but sure enough, that very same piece that came off on yours is now starting to bow and warp on mine, time to go back to the dealer........again.

    Ugh, good luck. So far so good on the replacement piece for me. It is still attached to the car.
